Studio K offers professional quality, age-appropriate dance training and performing opportunities to students ages 2 1/2 to adult of all levels of experience, including Ballet, Hip Hop, Tap, Modern, Jazz. It is our goal at Studio K to provide the best possible training and to develop each student's talents to his or her potential. Dance provides an outlet for self-expression and confidence, and the physical benefits are long lasting and continue to grow throughout life. 

Dancers are placed in classes with their own age and level. In addition to weekly classes, all of our students will perform in our annual Nutcracker Ballet, spring recital and spring ballet. Students will receive their class assignment and schedule after registering.

The Team

Cay Harkins.jpg

Cay Harkins

Originally from Charlotte, Cay studied ballet, tap, jazz, modern, and ballroom from a young age and has studied, performed, and taught with several ballet and theater productions through the years. 

She made the High Country her home, married her husband Andy, and opened Studio K Dance Workshop in 1979. Cay's entire family is a part of instruction and/or performing with the company, and dancers' families are encouraged to get involved as well. 

Cay says, "It's not a job to me. It's a way of pulling people together and letting them know they are loved and important, and they can do whatever they set their minds to. Everyone is equal on stage, and no one is left out"

Dedication ∙ Achievement ∙ Belonging

Discover the joy of dance in a supportive environment
where you can reach your goals.

The Nutcracker Ballet

Nutcracker Andy.jpg

If the music sounds sweeter than sugarplums, the dancers seem lighter than air, and the snowflakes sparkle more brightly than ever before, you are not dreaming, but you have escaped into the magical holiday classic ballet The Nutcracker, by Tchaikovsky. The holiday season would not be complete without this festive tradition performed by Studio K Youth Ballet Company.
