Our mission is to inspire the future leaders through our programs.
Showcase Dance and Performing Arts Center was established by Michele Buckley and Ali Sickles in 2012 in Hudson, NH. With a combined 50 years of dance education experience, our founders set out to open a center that achieved the highest standards of education, safety and business excellence. It was their goal to create an environment that was socially and culturally inclusive, where students are inspired and motivated to grow creatively into confident and respectful leaders who honor all cultures and beliefs.From 2012 to 2017 Showcase Dance and Performing Arts Center offered programs in dance, acro and tumbling.
In 2017, Michele and Ali opened Showcase Spirit, a full service cheer and tumbling gym. Our center now provides classes in dance, acro, adult fitness, tumbling, cheerleading, music, voice and theater. Our community has proudly grown to fit the needs, desires and convenience to serve the families in the greater Nashua area in the best of arts and cheer education.
Our mission is to inspire the future leaders of tomorrow within the walls of our center. We provide our community of students with an age-appropriate education while cultivating life skills by encouraging academics, community service and leadership programs. We proudly call ourselves "partners in parenting" to help raise our students in to great people. We are committed to providing high quality classes to enhance the overall development of every student.
Our team has grown to include instructors, coaches and support staff who are dedicated to providing a welcoming, creative space for students of all levels. They are ready to share their knowledge, passion and commitment to their art with every Showcase student.

"All four of my girls dance at the studio! What a wonderful place for them to learn the art of dancing! They not only learn dancing, but they build character and learn to be members of a community. The instructors are attentive and talented and choreograph age-appropriate dances. We love it here!"
