About PEDC

In 1982 Patti Eisenhauer had a dream; to start a Dance Studio!
At the time it was called the Norfolk School for Performing Arts and classes were held in a home studio.  It quickly became apparent that Patti had a gift for being both an innovator and strong leader in the world of dance and her enrollment grew rapidly. 
After moving her studio from Norfolk to Franklin and prompting from her industry expert friend Rhee Gold, she eventually changed the name of the studio to the "Patti Eisenhauer Dance Center" and with that, the 'brand' truly began to take shape. 
What followed next was decades of excellence.

The Studio promotes educating well-rounded students from age 2 to 18 at both the recreational and competitive levels. Patti's students are known for their technical excellence in all genres of dance and acro and her teachers for their age appropriate, up-to-date, award winning choreography.  The studio consistently achieves Regional and National overall high scores! 


Many former students have gone onto professional dance careers and can be seen performing all over the country in venues such as Broadway Shows, Music Videos, Walt Disney World, Busch Gardens...  some have even cheered/danced for our hometown New England Patriots and Boston Celtics.


The Patti Eisenhauer Dance Center is currently in its 40th year of operation, and Patti plans to continue educating young dancers making their dreams come true far into the future.
