We are a family owned and operated dance studio that strives to bring Fairbanks a unique dance culture like no other. Our studio owner not only takes care of all of the administrative work, she also teaches the majority of the classes at Breakout Dance Studio as well as gives each and every studio family a direct line of communication to her via our studio communications hub. Rest assured, your child’s growth and development will be seen by the studio owner as well as providing the opportunity to build a strong communication base with each and every studio family. We feel it’s important to keep those communications lines open at all times and care deeply about each and every one of our students.

We create a unity within our dance programs by ensuring students begin their dance journey in the genre of dance that fits their individual personality best and placing them in the appropriate level so as to challenge them but not overwhelm them. We begin with the foundations of dance and instill in our students that through discipline, dedication and hard work, they will grow into confident, creative, talented young adults ready to step out into the world on their own and pursue a career in dance if they so choose.

Our Wingman For Dance Program instills empathy and compassion in our students that bonds them together not only with their peers, but with their instructors as well and creates friendships that will last a lifetime.

One of our big finale pieces joining many of our students of all ages on stage together.

We are the first Alaskan studio to partner up with CLI Studios out of California back in April of 2018! Rest assured Breakout Dance Studio will be on top of the latest trends in the dance industry as our instructors and students work with over 150 of the industry’s top choreographers.

Our instructors receive training as well from some of the industry’s top choreographers, instructors, physical therapists, and companies centered around dance like International Dance Teaching Standards, Acrobatic Arts, Sugarfoot Therapy and more! Jamie Straatsma completed the Youth Protection Advocates In Dance Certification (YPAD) in 2020, CLI Studios certification in 2019 and 2020 and will be receiving her teaching certifications in Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Acro in 2020!

The YPAD Safety and Wellness Certification will ensure teachers are educated in the following core areas: educational best practices including background checks and CPR/First Aid, abuse awareness & prevention, injury prevention & response, and safety & emergency preparedness, social media/media safety/today’s dance culture, developmentally appropriate artistry, body image/nutrition/disordered eating, and bullying/conflict resolution.

We are very proud to be a YPAD studio!

We have now expanded to two studios! Come check out our location in the heart of downtown Fairbanks and take a peek at Studio A on the ground floor and Studio B on the second floor!
