Dancers for Life School of Dance Teaches Dance at Any Age

Dance is, with the right attitude, an ageless pursuit. "I wanted (people) to feel like they were dancers for life – at 80 or 90, you still have that artist mindset. At any age, any culture, any situation, you can dance for life," says Adrianne Allen, who owns the aptly named Dancers for Life School of Dance in Garden City.

The 30-year-old has been teaching classes since her early 20s with a commitment to the art form. She grew up in Saginaw and around metro Detroit, but has recently settled in Detroit – not far from the business she first created in 2013.

Her small studio provides a long list of offerings, from tap, jazz, hip-hop and modern to ballroom, yoga and West African dance. And, proving you're never too young to begin, Allen even offers a "Mommy and Me" option – which includes 8-month-old children. She calls it a "creative movement class" designed to get kids clapping their hands, interacting with one another and using sound effects.

Young or old, there's a little something for everyone. "This journey has been a good one," Allen says. "You just never give up."
