Welcome to Dance Workshop By Shari!  
A Pittsburgh Dance Studio that believes in
 
 
This catch-phrase describes our two-fold mission in providing top-quality dance education, while also giving our staff and students the opportunity to use their talents in a positive way to benefit the community.  
The first mission of the Dance Workshop by Shari dance studio is an important one: to provide a positive learning experience for all students. We believe that everyone can learn from their participation in dance, not just dance technique, but other important life lessons, as well.  
The second half of our stated mission is to use our talents in a positive way to benefit the community. We have done this throughout the years by participating in fund-raising events, church festivals, the KDKA Free Care Fund Telethon, Senior Citizen Homes performances, 5K Races, and community day festivities. Annually, we produce benefit shows, dance-a-thons and National Dance Week Celebrations to raise money and awareness for many worthwhile causes. Just since 2003, we have raised and donated tens of thousands of dollars to organizations such as Make A Wish, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, The Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank, Susan G Komen For the Cure, Juvenile Diabetes and many more.  We instill in our students the value of using their skills and talents to benefit others.

In 2008, we officially established “Dancing for A Difference™”as a non-profit organization. This has allowed us to expand our efforts in offering opportunities to our students to use their talents and gifts to make a difference in others’ lives. For more information on the opportunities and events, visit www.dancingforadifference.com.
