The following story is co-sponsored by the Arkadelphia Regional Economic Development Alliance.
Dance Praize is a Christian-based dance studio located in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. The business is owned and operated by Ashley and Melissa Carozza and serves both boys and girls of several ages. Common classes offered by the studio include ballet, tap, jazz, clogging, hip hop, and more. Ashley and Melissa have also expanded to offer musical theater and acting and performance classes.
Another great service offered through the dance studio is the ICAN! Dance program. The ICAN! Dance program offers free dance classes for children with special needs and disabilities. Through this program, participants are paired with a buddy and are able to participate in a 10 week class and perform at numerous events.
Both the Henderson State University ASBTDC and the Arkadelphia Regional Economic Development Alliance are honored to work with the owners of Dance Praize. The HSU ASBTDC has had the privilege of helping Ashley and Melissa review financial data and assist them with future plans for the business, and the Arkadelphia Regional Economic Development Center is great to help advertise various details about the business to the community.
