The History of
Dancers Studio, Inc.




From the Board and Staff of Dancers Studio:


We are deeply saddened by the recent passing of Alma Wiley, the founder and heart of Dancers Studio, Inc.  Our great organization exists today because of Alma’s hard work and dedication.

Words cannot fully express her importance in the community and in the lives of those who loved her. Alma was an artist, teacher, mentor, and friend. She truly loved her students and believed they could create art no matter the age. 
Dancers Studio, Inc. became a different kind of dance studio because of the passion Alma had for her work and the people who supported her mission. She would remind students, “I care first about what kind of person you are. I care second about what kind of dancer you are.” She valued each student and the stories they had to share. She believed in the magic they did. 


As we look through programs and pictures, we remember her love for the arts and those around her. She will continue to provide hope and inspiration to her community for years to come. On behalf of your friends from Dancers Studio, Inc., dearest Alma, we say goodbye.
