Welcome to SkyStone

On September 5th, 2017, we will begin classes in our new facility. SkyStone Conservatory of the Arts is proud to provide dedicated and supportive education in Dance, Theater, Music, Visual Arts, and Healing Arts.

Our goal as always is to teach and prepare every student well, to provide a positive and uplifting environment, to enhance the knowledge and skills students will need if they choose the Arts as a career, and to make every student’s Arts education experience valuable and memorable.

We are currently taking enrollment for 2017-2018 classes at  7909 Big Bend in beautiful Webster Groves.

For more information, please visit SkyStoneArts.org or call (636) 677-9019. We’re looking forward to this new chapter in the history of Dance Project!

The afternoon show features our preschool, kindergarten, and elementary students, while the evening show features our Performance Ensemble. Tickets are $15.00 for both children and adults. See you there!

A New Home

We are thrilled to have purchased a large two-story building in Webster Groves for our expansion into SkyStone Conservatory of the Arts! Dance Project Saint Louis will be the resident dance school of the center. We will also have classrooms for visual arts, theater, music, and more! Our objective is to integrate all art forms into our future performances and endeavors.

Our new building is currently being renovated inside and out and we expect construction to be completed by April. It is located right off Highway 44 by the Laclede Station Road exit, on Big Bend in the Old Orchard area. There is a very large parking lot right behind the building.

We have vacated our location in Fenton and will hold classes at Just Dancing until our building is completed. Just Dancing is a wonderful ballroom dance school that’s a bit north of where we were. They have served St. Louis for many years, and we’re looking forward to our time in their studio!
