Celebrating 25 Years of Dancing for a Difference!
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, 5K Races, and community day festivities. Just since 2003, we have raised and donated over $134,000 to organizations such as Make A Wish, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and many more.

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.
