About AFDS

A Passion for Dance

A Fine Dance Studio opened its doors in 2009 with the mission of bridging the gap between art and athletics, bringing joy through dance and movement to boys and girls of all ages. Some children come to us looking for friendship and fun, with no pressure, others dream of pursing a career in the performing arts and know that we can take them there. A Fine Dance Studio wants to support all kinds of dancers, regardless of their skill level. With programs for all ages and levels, AFDS is where you want to be. With a focus on body positivity and support, we are known as a dance school for everybody and every BODY. 

Thanks to our amazing educators and the support of our fabulous families A Fine Dance Studio have been voted as Needham’s #1 Dance Studio 14 Years running. 


Classes are offered for dancers ages 2 1/2 thru adult.

  • Recreational and Competitive Programs
  • Unique Combination-style classes
  • Classes year round to keep you in shape all year long.
  • Professional staff of experienced dance and fitness instructors.
  • Five spacious studios with professional wall-mounted barres and professional grade sprung floors and subfloors.

Children learn proper techniques and the vocabulary of dance all in a fun, inclusive environment.
