About Us

The School of Dance Studio East operates studios in Conception Bay South and Kenmount Business Park, St. John’s. DSE is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Martin Vallée and Jennifer Foley. As professional dancers with experience from several prestigious ballet companies (see TEAM for details), they offer a quality dance program that maximizes a students' potential. DSE provides serious students with quality instruction so they can attain a level of professionalism without leaving the province. While maintaining professionalism is of the utmost importance, Martin and Jennifer also believe that dance is an art form to be enjoyed by all, it is a celebration of movement and music. As a result, we offer both recreational and professional classes.
