“I had the great good fortune to study and dance with Lydia as a brand new convert to the dance world in college. More than anything I wanted to be a triple threat, and hoof my way to Broadway. And it was Lydia’s guidance- not only in technique, but into the heart of performance- that changed my life and actually made that possible! Five Broadway shows, and touring the world with Tommy Tune, Gregory Hines, Chita Rivera, the Nicholas Brothers…and so many more, all because I said ‘yes’ to her passionate commitment to the art of dance. Forever grateful!”
Students will have their temperatures checked daily and have individual workstations and activity spaces. Classes will be held inside the dance studio and outside (weather permitting). Spaces will be sanitized throughout the day. Students and staff will be required to wear masks.
Dance Lessons, Southeastern Indiana
Welcome To SEI Dance
Southeastern Indiana Dance, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation located in downtown Batesville. We offer classes in ballet, modern, jazz, musical theater, tap and hip hop as well as private lessons and social dance events. Our quality instructors teach more than dance technique. We stimulate creativity, increase confidence, promote healthy activity and build teamwork skills.
Activities are made possible in part by the Columbus Area Arts Council and the Indiana Arts Commission.
We welcome students of all ages to come and experience the wonderful world of dance.
“Today is international dance day. Normally I wouldn’t care too much; however, today I am overwhelmed with gratitude that Southeastern Indiana Dance has come into my life. I am grateful that Miss Lydia responded to my email in March asking about 1 on 1 dance lessons, when I was looking to find a way to try to build some strength/flexibility after being ravaged by Covid. I am grateful that she said “yes” to taking on teaching me despite her busy schedule.”
“SEI Dance is a fantastic studio! They offer a variety of programs to fit every dancer’s interests. I love how the more experienced dancers assist in classes and mentor the younger ones by example. Miss Lydia is a great instructor and my daughter has learned so much! After every fall and spring session, they put on a recital that is first rate! The venue, the music, the costumes, and of course…the dancers!!! This dance mom rates SEI Dance 5 Stars!!!”
“My daughter has been involved in SEI Dance for 4 years. She was curious about ballet. Impressive is an understatement. Whether it’s ballet, modern dance, jazz, or tap, the professionalism, dedication, and skill is off the charts for the costs. It doesn’t matter if your child is curious or wants to be a professional it’s all there with an attitude, friendliness, and drive like you’ve never experienced before. Impossible to overstate the value of SEI Dance to any boy or girl today.”
“We first discovered SEI Dance (The Dance Studio) 10 years ago. It is conveniently located within walking distance of the schools and offers after school and weekend hours that are perfect for both of our children. Ms. Lydia and Ms.Toni have years of experience within the field of dance and our children have learned so much from them. Our children have formed important friendships with many of their classmates and look forward to recital performances each semester. We are most grateful for the priority placed on proper technique and safety. Ms. Lydia implemented a plan for pointe/ballet students to be screened for readiness with an orthopaedic and sports medicine team. The screening provided a wealth of information for both Ms.Lydia and our child. We now have a detailed plan on how to improve our child’s weaknesses as well as a list of her strengths. Thank you, Ms.Lydia and Ms.Toni, for sharing the gift of dance with our children and making great memories along the way!”
