hi!

                We're Alyssa and Amber Batson, sisters and co-owners, of Next Level Dance Center in West Roseville! We opened NLDC in 2016 with the goal of creating an inspiring and encouraging dance environment for dancers of all ages. Having both begun dance training at the age of 3, we know how a positive dance experience can influence all areas of your dancer's life! We both have a background in recreational and competitive dancing, and have won numerous top placements and titles. Collectively we have attended numerous master classes and conventions, training with top choreographers from Roseville to Yuba City. Together we direct and choreograph NLDC's Fusion Dance Team as well as teach multiple recreational classes in the studio. We are so excited to have you become a part of our dance family, because that's how we treat each other at Next Level Dance Center: like family. 

I love that they focus on technique. I've seen a huge improvement in my daughter's skill level in a short time.

Sulley

FUSION DANCE DOG

Emotional support, charm & snuggles

Mr. Sulley is the lone male on the faculty roster, making appearances in our Fusion Dance Team classroom when morale needs a boost or snuggles are required. He is always on his best behavior but is known to beg for the occasional treat. His favorite dance style is Jazz but mostly he likes to lay on the floor. Forgive him, he's just a puppy.

 

Disclaimer:

Sulley does not visit regular recreational classes. He is only at our team studio.
