About

When you mention Becky Kern’s Dance Studio in Belleville, you’re liable to hear, “Oh, I went there”. That’s because BKDS has been bringing good, wholesome, family fun to the Belleville dance world since 1961.

BKDS is one of the largest and most well known dance studios in the St. Louis area. Friendships are formed here that last a lifetime. We have no bickering or rivalries at our studio. We just have happy families who come to dance class to make friends and have fun.

Our teachers are wonderful, decent people that you will love working with and that your children will admire and look up to. BKDS really is just one big, happy family.

Ten of our students have opened up their own studios. Several of our students have gone on to dance professionally at the Muny, the Fox and on Broadway. And a bunch of our students became professional cheerleaders.

At BKDS, we try to expose our students to as many new opportunities as possible. There isn’t another studio anywhere that offers more for their students.
