Artistry Dance Center

KELSEY RIOUX | OWNER/DIRECTOR

Welcome!

Artistry Dance Center, previously named The Putnam Dance Center, was founded in 1996 and offers a complete program of dance education for all levels from beginners to advanced. Our goal is to develop coordination, grace, physical fitness, and time management, while building self esteem and confidence. Through positive reinforcement our students will gain a lifelong appreciation for music, dance, and the arts, while creating friendships and memories that will last a life time!

A message from the Director:

1/7

I am so excited to share that starting June 2021, I will be the new Owner and Director of

“Artistry Dance Center,” formally The Putnam Dance Center!

This is certainly a big change, especially for our families at the studio (myself included!). However, I hope over the years to come we can continue to carry on what makes our studio so special and keep the core values/beliefs that Annette has instilled with The PDC. The importance of friendships, community, creating a safe and nurturing environment for children to express themselves, and even the values of commitment and perseverance. But most importantly, sharing the love of the art of dance with our friends and families.

I'd like to extend a huge thank you to Annette. From being my first dance teacher at age 3, to my mentor and business partner, she has treated me with such kindness, and helped me grow into the person I am today. It is an honor to have her trust and blessing to carry on the legacy of the studio, something that has been her pride and joy for 25 years. We have created such amazing memories here, and I am very excited to continue in her footsteps. And to my parents especially, teachers, professors, friends, and family… I certainly would not be where I am today without all love and support you’ve given me on this journey. Something that started as a fun hobby turned into a life-long adventure; something so essential to my existence I couldn’t imagine living without it. I know that this is truly where I belong!

To my students and studio families, I want to emphasize that the PDC will still always be at the heart and soul of this studio! This is in no way “starting over,” just continuing the journey with the same love and appreciation of our studio, the wonderful faculty we have, and each other. Congratulations to Annette for 25 years of running a successful studio! We love you so much, and I can’t wait to create some amazing memories with Artistry Dance Center!"

Comments from the community...

The girls just LOVE you all and we are so thankful to be part of such a wonderful studio! Thank you for your constant kindness and love towards each of these kids.”

“My girls have been dancing at the studio for five years now and they absolutely love their teachers and the friends they meet. The teachers always meet the child where they are at and make it a point to get to know their family and in that it is a positive community of students, teachers, and parents.”
