This is an open dance where the individuals can dance and have fun with other members of the community.  We will have dj'ed music and there will be free dancing, line dancing and more.

Please help us spread the word about our next Shindig!  Our "Special Needs Shindig Dance Party" will be on Friday, April 19 from 7:00-9:00 pm. The cost is $10.00 per individual.

*The Special Needs Shindig is not limited to current members of the Top Hat Special Needs programs but is open to ALL members of the community!

Below is a link for members to register for the dance.  Pre-registration is not necessary, I just know from previous events that sometimes parents or caregivers prefer to pay in advance.




Our annual Spring Showcase is right around the corner. This year the Showcase will be held on Sunday, June 2, 2024, at Archbishop Ryan High School on Academy Road. ALL tickets will be available through our ticketing portal, or by clicking the “BUY TICKETS” button on our website or Facebook page.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, April 23rd, at 11:30 am!



As the Spring Showcase draws near, one of our favorite days of the year is also upon us. Top Hat Picture Day is scheduled for Sunday, May 5th. Once again, Picture Day is not only for the students of the youth program, but instead, it is open to all performers in the Spring Showcase. This includes all solo performers, the Special Needs performers as well as the students of the Sunday Tantz Dance Program. Students have been given a flyer with a schedule of the day’s events. Adhering to the indicated picture time is imperative to a successful day for all. We look forward to seeing all of the dancers in their costumes for the first time.




Spearheaded by mambo guru Gio Escobar, the Siguelo Series was created to revive the love of Latin dance in the tri-state area. Bringing you the hottest DJ’s, instructors, performers and more, guests are always ensured of a great time. Siguelo offers the best selection of salsa, bachata, cha-cha and more! So come on out and save us a dance! The next Sigeulo Saturday party will be held on Saturday, April 20!





Save the date, we are planning to hold our annual Spring Showcase on Sunday, June 2, 2024. This year we will be once again holding our recital at Archbishop Ryan High School on Academy Road. There will be more details coming forth in the coming weeks.




Top Hat has gone back to its roots and reinstituted the Ballroom Program to the class roster.  Over the past year or so, we have received a huge call from the student body asking us to hold these classes again.  We can certainly not disappoint!  On Thursday, March 14, at 7:00 pm, Ballroom classes were happening on the dance floor once again!  The Ballroom Class, taught by Jameson, is for Advanced-Beginner through Intermediate dancers, meaning that a working foundation of the various ballroom dances is required to participate in the class.  The dances will appear on the schedule on a rotating basis and will include Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, Rumba, Cha Cha, Samba, East Coast Swing, Quickstep and Bolero.  For all of you who have been instrumental in the rebirth of this program, help us spread the word!  There are plans for a beginner level class in the future. 




The kid’s aerial yoga workshops have been growing quite a bit.  With that, we have decided to make the workshop a regular occurrence at the studio.  The kid’s aerial yoga class will now be offered as a regular monthly class.  The workshops will be held on the following dates:  April 6, May 18, June 1, and July 20 at 3:30 pm.  For these dates, we are offering a special pricing promotion.  The cost of one workshop is $25.00, however, you may take advantage of our promotion and receive all four classes for $75.00.   In addition, we are offering a $5.00 off coupon for any new students.  You may purchase the 4-Workshop Package by clicking the link below:
