Studio 203 Dance Centre, formerly Karen and Donna School of Dance was established in 1976 by sisters Karen Buchholz-DePriest and Donna Arce.  Since its founding the studio has trained over 7,000 dancers including many who have become professional dance company members, NFL Cheerleaders, dance studio owners and professional dance instructors.  As we enter our thirty-sixth year of service to the Central Texas area, we have elected to change our name to reflect our unique combination of experienced instruction, cutting edge choreography, committed service and exceptional rates.  Our dedicated management, instructors and staff will continue to provide the exemplary instruction, service and value our customers have been accustomed to at Karen and Donna School of Dance.

Our mission at Studio 203 Dance Centre is to not only give the finest possible dance training to all of our students, but also to instill them with a positive self-image which contributes to a happy and fulfilling adulthood. By offering both recreational and competitive dance instruction, we develop our students’ minds and personalities through learning self-discipline, responsibility, mental alertness and cooperation.
