Thank you for stopping by, it is our hope that after taking a look around you will consider choosing Northland School of Dance as your dance home. We know you will enjoy the friendly atmosphere and excitement generated by the entire Northland staff and students. Our first and foremost concern is your child.

Teresa Rolf, Owner/Director
I took my first dance class at age 3 and continued all throughout high school. I was an assistant for my dance teacher while in high school, and upon graduation we joined forces and created a partnership, opening our first dance studio together. Today, after dancing for decades and teaching for over 45+ years, I am blessed to have a partnership with my talented daughter Corrie, and my wonderful husband Larry. Together we have created one of the finest studios in the country, Northland School of Dance.
Corrie Dunn, Choreographer/Instructor
I’ve been dancing my whole life, quickly moving into teaching and choreography. With a strong background in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Musical Theater, Hip Hop and Gymnastics, I studied with many professional dance organizations across the country, i.e. Tremaine, Steps, Broadway Dance Center, Dupree, Edge and more. I have great love and compassion for my students, it brings me so much joy to give back to my students what God has blessed me with in my life.
It is important to remember all dance studios are not alike. Studios will vary greatly in the type of instruction and service they provide. Northland prides itself on the family atmosphere generated by the staff, parents and students. It is not the facility that makes a warm and friendly dance studio, it’s the people. Northland embodies high quality dance instruction and has produced an elite group of dancers and excellent teachers who have continually received regional and national awards for choreography and routine accomplishment. We open our doors and our arms to offer exciting programs for all levels of dance, from the beginning and recreational dancer, to an intermediate competition level or ‘pre-comp’ for those who want more without full commitment, and also offer an intensive full competition dance program.
At Northland School of Dance, we offer a limited class size with ample staff to meet all of the student’s needs. We emphasize a strong ballet foundation, mastering dance technique, showmanship and good sportsmanship. We strive for top notch, well trained performers, with strong character, a strong mind and body, good sportsmanship, a practice of loyalty, and the understanding that excellence is not always being the best, but it is always doing your best. To this end we dedicate ourselves to you.
