About

Mulford Dance Studio has established itself as the premier dance educator in the South Jersey area. We believe this success stems from solid training and quality service. As the industry evolves, we will continue to reevaluate our purpose and determine the methods needed to best serve our students.  In July of 2023, life long student and long time teach Ms. Ariana Ferrari became the Director/Owner of Mulford Dance Studio.  

 

The Mulford Dance Studio Dance Company focuses on technique, performance, community and character.  Mulford Dance offers a Performance track for the more competitive dancer along with a Recreational track.  Mulford Dance offers the highest level of technical and stylistic dance training regardless of which program you participate in. Long term it is beneficial for our dancers to receive a solid technical foundation.Our Performance Company program will prepare dancers for not only a dance career, but college dance teams and theater performing arts. Our hope is that this flexible environment will accommodate the exploration of additional interests including auditioning and participating in theatrical performances, participating in school activities and other interests of the dancers.

Our Dance Company is open to all registered students. We have performing companies for ages 3+up! Our dancers are and have been apart of the Philadelphia Thanks giving Day Parade since 1995.  Miss Kim (the former of Mulford Dance Studio) is one of the choreographers for the parade. Our dancers are also part of the Opening and Closing productions in the parade. As part of the Walt Disney productions, we were one of only five studios in the country to have the honor to perform with Disney. Part of our outreach program includes performing at local hospitals and nursing homes throughout the year. We are also proud to participate in the Mt. Ephraim’s and many other local town Holiday parades.

 

Our studio offers many opportunities for our students, beside performing at many different venues. Our students have had modeling opportunities with costume catalogs, some of our former company dancers are performing on the 76ers Dance Team, Kixx Dance Team, andPhiladelphia Soul! We have had company members on the 76ers Mini Dance Team, Jr Dance Team, and Pre-Pro Dance Team just to name a few! Please contact the studio for more information if you or your dancer are interested in becoming apart of our Dance Company.
