Footlights Dance Studio provides a loving, Christian environment for students to learn and explore the joy of dance and the arts, serving Flower Mound and surrounding cities.


Footlights Dance Studio first opened in 1996, founded by Amy Parsons. Amy spent more than 20 years building the studio before turning over the reins in 2017 to two of her tenured instructors (and sisters!), Teresa Novak and Christina Hedding. Teresa and Christina have been instructors at Footlights for over 18 years collectively and have more than 40 years teaching experience combined. Their love for the art of dance, the importance of investing in our children of today and building the Kingdom led them to not just “any dance studio” ownership, but “THIS dance studio”.

Footlights Dance Studio opened with the mission of providing quality dance instruction in a safe, loving, Christian environment and that foundation still holds true today. Our focus is on the whole student and building our dancers from the inside, focusing not only on their dance technique but on their heart, mind and soul too!

We have an experienced and tenured staff, who each have a heart for teaching and upholding the mission of Footlights Dance Studio! You can view our instructors here.

“Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up…” ~ Thessalonians 5:11
