Located within the City of Batesville, Southeastern Indiana Dance is a comprehensive dance facility. We offer classes in ballet, modern, jazz, musical theater and tap. We have two studios side-by-side and offer classes for students from age 3 1/2 to 103.

Our quality instructors not only teach dance technique, but stimulate creativity, increase confidence, promote healthy activity, and build teamwork.

Students who train with us learn for fun, to stay active and because they wish to pursue a career in dance. With our support, they develop skills for life.

We also teach private lessons, social dances and can even help you prepare a dance for your wedding.

We’re Raising The Barre!


Our vision is to create a world where everyone can access the magic of dance. We have witnessed first-hand how dance can build character, confidence and friendships. This beautiful, enriching sport is an incredible tool to teach body awareness, self-discipline and teamwork.

Through our service of teaching dance, we strive to provide exceptional coaching and leadership to our students.

While striving to instill the importance of etiquette and manners, we also focus on good self-esteem and positive body image.
