Susan Causey's School of Dance

Susan Causey's School of Dance

Susan Causey began her dancing school in 1980 due to her love for children and her love for dance. She wanted to have a studio that "enables girls to enjoy being girls" and a place where "young women can feel good about themselves and what they are doing."

Due to her exceptional compassion for young people, her love for life, her ability to make things fun and exciting, and her strong faith in God, Susan has constructed a highly successful dance studio. She is committed to ensuring that her students will grow in their appreciation and knowledge of dance.

Operating as usual


These happy dancers are a month into their first year of college! So it’s only necessary that we document their beauty! 💃🏻

sneak peek...


Remembering to keep smiles on our lips in these times of uncertainty is keeping us full of joy!
Here’s to a ~different~ summer, yes. But still, here’s to laugher, here’s to music, here’s to friends, here’s to dance!


It’s t-shirt day dancers! Drop by the studio between NOW and 12pm OR between 5 - 6:30 pm today to get your 2020 t-shirt and to say “Happy Summer” to SuSu!


In honor of many of our seniors graduating today, the next quote in our series is senior recommended, it has a love/hate relationship with dancers, it is a Mrs. Anne Nicole Classic. It is “one more time!” ⠀

Because we know that “one more time” will never actually mean ONE more time. Practice makes perfect!
