With over 45 years behind its name, the SDF offers a dance style and class for everyone no matter what your age or interest. Our students range from beginners to professionals.
In 1967 the studio was opened by Jackie Colasanti. After 40 years dancing her dream, Jackie decided to retire in 2007. Sandra Tedesco who had been dancing at SDF since 1987 and teaching since 2000, became the new director of the Syracuse Dance Factory. Sandra has won trophies in several dance competitions at both regional and national levels. Besides teaching at SDF, she has also been involved in after school dance programs at several schools and has taught competition classes helping other dancers get recognition for their talents. Sandra has also taken courses in Anatomy & Physiology and received a degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant.
We are strongly committed to age-appropriate music, choreography and attire. We believe that young students should not attempt to convey complex, mature emotions. In addition, the studio atmosphere is pressure-free as participation in competitions or community events is purely optional.
