Everyone that enters DeForest Dance Academy in Elmhurst and Glen Ellyn will be greeted by a friendly face with a big smile. DeForest Dance is one of the happiest dance studios in the western suburbs of Chicago. That is because owner, Ashley DeForest-Goletz, would have it no other way!

Ashley’s mission is a simple one. She believes that everyone can dance! And, she has succeeded in her goal to create a fun and welcoming environment where all students can learn, gain confidence and have fun while growing a love for the art of dance.

A student can come take an hour-long dance class, once a week. Or, they can audition for our award-winning competitive dance team, Steppin’ Out Dance Company, and receive extensive training.

We invite you to come to tour our studios and see what we are all about!
