Our History

Joanne Wevodau opened Joanne's School of Dance in Harrisburg using the hallways and gymnasium of the St. Catherine's School on Derry Street. It was there that Carol Wevodau started teaching dance for her. Joanne became the director of the West Shore YMCA and turned the studio over to Carol in 1981. 

To maintain the family legacy, the name changed to the Wevodau School of Dance. Soon after, we opened a West Shore location in the Upper Allen township building. The studio remained in that location for a few years, but as the studio grew, we relocated to our current location in Camp Hill, and the name changed to the Wevodau Dance Center. 

We would like to thank Carol and her husband Larry for 35 amazing years! Carol and Larry are retiring
this year and the studio will be continuing under the artistic direction of April Wevodau along with her
large staff of awesome managers! You can find out more about us on the Meet the Staff page. 

Here's to the next 35 years of dance!!
