   Dance by Cami has been in business since 2003 and offers classes in Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Pointe, Musical Theater, Lyrical, Contemporary, Acro, Turns, Leaps and Jumps, Cheer-Dance, Hip Hop, Stretch and Pre-school Combo!  We are conveniently located in Waterdam Commons right on Route 19.  The studio features 9 incredible teachers, whom you may read more about under our "Instructors" page.  Dance by Cami is home of the SHOWDOLLS, the National Award winning group for dancers ages 7-18, as well as the Baby Dolls for students ages 5-6 and the Preemies for the 4 year old dancers.  We accept students beginning at 2 1/2 through 18 at all levels and abilities.

  We take pride in maintaining our clean and bright studio throughout the year.  Our bright blue room is 30x50 feet and is equipped with a state-of-the-art sprung floor for your dancer's safety.  We also feature a pink "Princess Room" adorned with all the Princesses your little one can imagine for the Pre-school Combo classes, and it is also equipped with a sprung floor.  There are viewing windows to both studios and parents are always welcome to observe any class of their child's from the window.  Twice a semester we also hold a parent observation week in which we invite the parents to sit inside the classroom to get an inside peak at their child's progress. 

   Dance by Cami holds their annual recitals at Upper St. Clair High School Theater.  The recital is one of the main events of the year!  We bring in backdrops from Hollywood, distribute trophies to all participants, hire skilled technicians for videography, photography, lighting, sound crew, airbrushed apparel, stage hands, and much more!  It is an event the students and staff look forward to every year.

   Please feel free to navigate the links through this site to learn more about the studio.  We'd love to hear from you so feel free to call the studio at 724-942-0500, e-mail us or stop by to visit!!!

Latest News
September Newsletter

Dance by Cami Students and Parents,

Welcome to all of our many new students as well as our returning students!  We can’t wait to see your smiling faces in our classrooms.  You will notice a fresh new look at Dance by Cami.  We have new flooring throughout our hallways and lounge areas, and cubbies have been installed in the back girls' lounge for keeping your dance bags, etc.  We also hired a new cleaning company that promises to keep the studio even more shiny and clean!  Vending machines are going to be installed in the front lobby sometime in the next week or so.  We are all looking forward to Dance by Cami Season 15!!!


 You will be receiving the monthly newsletter via email.  Please be sure that we have your correct email address.  We will always post a hard copy in the studio lobby as well.  The newsletters contain upcoming events, dates, deadlines, etc.  You may also read it on the Dance by Cami website.  All important information is communicated through these newsletters, so please be sure to take the time to read them!

Payments - IMPORTANT Change

Payments are always due on the first of each month.  Remember that the payment always remains the same throughout the year no matter how many classes are in the month, as it is an annual tuition broken down into 10 equal monthly payments.  Your tuition will be posted on your accounts on the 25th of the month.  Payments are due by the 1st of the month.  A Late Fee of $10 will be posted if not received by the 5th of the month, with the exception of September’s payment. Payments can be made online at  The office is open on Thursday and Saturday mornings from 10:00-noon, and Monday through Friday from 5:00-7:00 during the 1st week of every month.  If you wish to pay in person by credit card, you must pay during those hours.  Otherwise, please leave your cash or check payments in the locked Payment Box just outside the office window.  Envelopes have been placed near the payment box if you wish to leave cash or mail in your payment.  Do not ask a teacher to leave her classroom to take your credit card please!  Please add a $10 late fee if your payment is made after the 5th of the month.

Class Schedules

You will not receive a hard copy of your schedule in the mail this year; instead your schedule and tuition amount has been emailed to you.  If it is not correct, please email us at ASAP so that we can make those changes.  Also, be sure to read the attire and shoe requirements on the website.  You may purchase shoes through our online store by accessing the link on our website at, or at Tutu Dancewear in Bridgeville.

The Nutcracker

Dance by Cami has tickets to see the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater production of The Nutcracker for Sunday, December 17th at noon, at the Benedum.  We have great seats in the center section of the first tier of the theater.  We have tickets at a discounted price of $46.  This is half-price of individual tickets for these seats.  Prior to the performance we will have a backstage tour of the Benedum and get to go up on stage to watch the dancers warm-up.  Tickets go on sale at the studio on Saturday, September 16th at 9:00.  We have a limited number of tickets and we do sell out quickly. 

Sibling Behavior

While siblings are always welcome to come to the studio while your dancer takes class, please do not allow them to be a distraction to the class, make excessive noise in the hallways, leave messes anywhere in the studio, or play unattended in the back dressing rooms.  We have installed new shelves that are meant for dancer’s bags and belongings, and should NOT be climbed on or an injury could occur.  We also have a fire escape door located in the back dressing room which by law needs to remained unlocked for a quick exit in case of emergency, however locks from the outside as a safety precaution.  You wouldn’t want your unattended child to go out that door and be locked around the back of the building!  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.


Classes begin on Tuesday, September 5th.  Looking forward to an exciting Season 15!!!

Cami and Staff
