School Of Dance Arts est. 1975

The School of Dance Arts is located in Florence, South Carolina and is owned and operated by Devin Jennings. Established in 1975, the school offers instruction in multiple styles of dance for students as young as 18 mos to adults. SODA has been an established studio in the Florence community for nearly fifty years with a tradition of offering excellence in dance education.

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. It is important to our mission to provide students with conservative choreography, costuming and music choices for both class and performances. 

The School of Dance Arts gives students who enjoy dance as a form of recreation as well as the more serious dancer the opportunity to grow and develop their skills. Starting from a young age, students can improve their motor skills, coordination, strength, flexibility and endurance all while having fun in class. The benefits of dance are not just physical, as our dance students are encouraged to be creative, work together as a team, learn professionalism and sportsmanship as well as discipline.  Most of all, our students learn to appreciate the art form of dance, and the lessons they learn in the studio can be applied to their lives.

“Where excellence in dance begins.”

OUR MISSION

“IT IS MY OBJECTIVE THAT THROUGH THE OPPORTUNITIES, CHALLENGES AND DISCIPLINE PROVIDED BY DANCE, STUDENTS WILL REFLECT UPON THEIR INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENTS AND APPLY THE LESSONS THEY’VE LEARNED WHILE WORKING WITH US TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL WITH WHATEVER LIFE HAS TO OFFER.”
