Welcome to
The Marianne Anderson School of Dance!

Our Philosophy

The Marianne Anderson School of Dance was established in 1973 by Marianne Anderson-Santilli. We have proudly served Wantagh and its surrounding communities for forty-two years! Dancers here blossom in our warm, family-like atmosphere where every dancer has equal access to the best education our experienced and professional staff can provide.
We believe in the fundamental principle that dance is a physical manifestation of artistic expression. We believe that proper dance training means that dancers will learn to love and respect themselves, their classmates, and the art of dance. At The Marianne Anderson School of Dance we believe in each and every one of our dancers and that is why
we call ourselves a family...not just a school.
