Celebrating our 29th Season of Excellence in Dance! 


Established in 1992 by Margaret Tapogna Gatzonis, Danceworks Dance Center quickly became one of the leading artistic and creative dance education centers in the City of New York for its time.


After 16 seasons as owner and director, Ms. Tapogna, passed the torch, to long-time studio and company member, Fallon White. 

Celebrating her 11th season, Fallon, has carried on the Danceworks name with pride, working endlessly to maintain the original concept and values of Danceworks, while breathing new life into the company. Danceworks continues to flourish today, constantly re-inventing their program to better serve their students with the most updated forms of dance and technique.

Danceworks Dance Center, has an extremley high success rate of students accepted into specialized school programs, including Mark Twain Jr. High School and LaGuardia High School. As well as, numerous college programs with concentrations in dance and the arts.

We are proud to say many of our students have transitioned professionally, after their education at Danceworks. Past alumni  have appeared on Broadway, in music videos and film. Most recently, alumn have danced with world renowned modern dance companies, such as the Lar Lubovitch and Ailey companies. We've also had our share of alumns dance and cheer for both minor and major league sports teams, including the NY Jets.
