The History of Atlantic Studios of Dance Education
       
In the fall of 1980, after several years of teaching children in both dance and academic settings, Julie Moffatt founded Atlantic Studios of Dance Education. The first spring performance was a simple demonstration with about sixty students on the old Milton High School stage in Milton, MA. The studio was located in North Quincy and served students from Quincy, Milton, Dorchester and Braintree. This studio has since been moved to the Wollaston neighborhood of Quincy. When enrollment increased over the next few years, an additional location was necessary to accommodate all of the students, so in the fall of 1995, Julie opened her second studio location in East Milton. Because the studios are located less than a mile apart, all students have the luxury of studying easily at either place.
       
       
Three Generations and Going Strong!
       
   
       

One of the first parents to enroll her daughter when the studio opened was Joan Levine Zinnamon. A resident of North Quincy, she was looking for a local, educationally-oriented dance program for her pre-schooler, Marla, as well as an adult course for herself. Both Joan and Marla studied with Atlantic Studios of Dance Education until Marla's graduation from high school in 1995. Now Marla's own daughter, Abby, along with Joan and Marla, is studying with us as well. Several other former students from the 1980's and 90's also have their children studying with us - evidence that Atlantic Studios of Dance Education continues to serve multiple generations of dancers!
