School Of Dance Arts est. 1975.

The School of Dance Arts is located in Florence, South Carolina and is owned and operated by Niki Sansbury. Established in 1975, the school offers instruction in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop and Cheer Dance.

We have been an established business since 1975 with a tradition of excellence in the Florence Community. Over the years we have achieved a reputation for our professionalism, organization, and creativity.

SODA is committed to providing students with a safe and fun atmosphere carefully managed to encourage personal growth and development by instilling self confidence, self discipline and respect for oneself and others.

We believe in a conservative approach to the types of moves we teach, costumes that kids wear, and music that kids are exposed to. Parents continually thank us for providing a safe, conservative atmosphere for their children. In addition, we believe that learning should be FUN!

There are all types of classes for a variety of ages offered through the School of Dance Arts
