Our Mission

Lifelong ambitions, dreams, & friends begin here... Dance at KBDS changes everything!

Family-Owned and Operated since 1979, Kelle Boggs Dance Studio is located in the heart of Winfield, West Virginia. Owner & Artistic Director, Deana Boggs-McNeil and her daughter, Cheyenne McNeil, serve students in a professional setting. KBDS is a third generation family owned and operated dance studio. 

Kelle Boggs Dance Studio offers a dance education in a very nurturing, loving, and entertaining environment. Our studio prides itself on making every dancer the absolute best he/she can be! The studio provides an energetic atmosphere and strives to constantly evolve in the world of dance and performing arts. 


KBDS offers top-notch instruction in classes for children ages 2-18 in tap, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, creative movement, lyrical/contemporary, improvisation, technique/conditioning, and much more. Our combination based classes are the perfect balance of structure, discipline, and fun. Each dance class is specific to your child's development age and stage. 


Whether you are a dancer looking for an extra-curricular activity consisting of fun and discipline, or someone who is interested in traveling with the Competition Team and furthering a more serious, rigorous program, then we are definitely the studio for you! ​

At KBDS we foster continual improvement, self-confidence, and positive reinforcement. Memories and training are ensured to last a lifetime! 

​"One of our primary goals is to teach life lessons and skills that offer children the best chance for success. Dance education encompasses far more than technique and the steps the children learn. I believe the discipline of dance training gives young people a better understanding of commitment through learning, experiencing the spirit of teamwork, and discovering what they can accomplish through hard work. Our goal is to educate the minds, bodies, and souls of our students, teaching them the skills needed for a successful life, whether or not they stay involved in dance." ~Rhee Gold

Dress Code at KBDS

Dancers should take time and care when dressing for classes. Hair is always to be tied away from your face, especially Competition and Advanced classes. Street clothes are not permitted in dance class. Instructors must be able to correct dancers appropriately and they may be obstructed if the dancer's alignment is hidden. We feel you must dress for success; therefore, when you look like a dancer, you will dance like one too!

Don't forget! 

  • Hair should be tightly secured, away from face; a neat ballet bun is preferred. 

  • Jewelry and watches should not be worn to class. 

  • Dance wear should be kept in good condition and laundered on a regular basis. 

  • Please label all belongings with your dancer's name. 

  • No baggy clothes are to be worn. 

  • Always send your dancer with a water bottle!
