About Allegro Dance Company

Our Philosophy

Allegro was founded in 1991 by Dance Masters of America certified member Lauren Doty. It is now owned by her daughter, Lindsey Hobbs Knott, continuing the family tradition.
Allegro provides a special mix of professional dance training with a caring and accessible curriculum. The faculty provides one on one training while maintaining professional-level results.
We provide all levels and genres of dance training. Classical Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap, Modern, Lyrical, Hip-Hop, and Contemporary Dance. Classes start at age 3 and continue through adulthood.
Here at Allegro, we offer classes to fulfill our student's love of dance and beyond. Whether your commitment is large or small, Allegro offers a full scale of studio classes as well as opportunities to join our Allegro Performing Arts Company and our Competition Team.
Allegro's winning choreography, excellent technical curriculum, and caring teaching style make us the right choice for anyone interested in exploring the wonderful world of dance.
