About us

Floyd Ward School of Dance has been the leader in dance education for over 84 years.  We continue to offer technique classes for both the very young and the most advanced student.  Our owners and instructors are passionate about sharing the art of dance with our community and take pride in offering a quality dance education program to the people of the Roanoke Valley.

Advanced ballet, clogging, tap, hip-hop, modern, and jazz students are encouraged to audition for Floyd Ward Dance Ensembles.  These ensembles attend professional dance conventions throughout the year and compete at regional and national dance competitions.

Students ages 12-18 have the opportunity to audition for Floyd Ward Scholarships. These scholarships are awarded and presented annually during our revue.

Performing is a vital part of dance education. Our spring performance this year, Celebrating 85 Years on the Red Carpet, will be held on May 31st and June 1st at the Performing Arts Theatre. Throughout the year, there are numerous opportunities to perform for civic organizations, nursing homes, community events, festivals, local benefits, and malls.
