Terry Matlock School of Performing Arts

Welcome to the Terry Matlock School of Performing Arts, Inc.  My school has trained thousands of dancers, both amateur and professional, over the last 35 years.  My specialized team of instructors consists of myself, Mary Blevins, Monica Crimi, Aimee Martin, Rae Litwicki, Elyse Ceasar, Lori Staley, Amanda Morris, and Amber Pisarky.   I believe that dance is an art form for everyone to enjoy.  Classes are offered for students as young as two years, and our older dancers enjoy the BeMoved classes.  We have curriculum for those wanting to dance for fitness and recreation, and also for those that want to train seriously for a career in dance.  A variety of programs and competition teams are offered to best fit your needs, and I would be glad to meet with you and help to set a dance path for you or your student.


Dancingly yours,


Terry Matlock
