Opened in 2004, Studio A Dance Co. has become one of the top studios in the Quad Cities. With a state of the art, 5400 square foot facility, a top notch faculty, and limited class sizes, Studio A provides a safe, inspiring environment for kids to learn and create.

Angela Mappin, Owner and Artistic Director, hopes to instill a strong passion for dance in every student that comes to Studio A. For over 20 years, Angela has been dancing and teaching all over the country. Growing up in Phoenix, Arizona where the dance possibilities were limitless, Angela was dancing professionally by the age of 13. When her parents moved her to Bettendorf as a freshman in high school, Angela knew she wanted to bring something new and exciting to the Quad Cities. She was a dancer and choreographer for 3 State Championship routines for the Bettendorf High School Goldusters. After majoring in dance at the University of Illinois, Angela moved to Chicago where she studied with the Hubbard Street Dance Company, danced professionally in a small company, and was a top ten finalist for the Radio City Rockettes.

Studio A Dance Co. is home to an incredible faculty which includes credits such as Walt Disney World, Princess Cruise Lines, Coach of the Bettendorf High School Goldusters, Young Americans, Top State of Iowa Soloist, and Captain of the Iowa Dance Team. The Studio A faculty has over 75 combined years of performing and teaching experience, ensuring a consistent, professional, and positive experience.

Studio A prides itself on its family friendly atmosphere.  We strive to instill values and discipline in a fun and safe environment where students can express themselves through dance.  We encourage dancers to find what gifts they have as an individual, as well as what they can achieve as a team.

Dancers at the studio are able to excel in the areas of Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Lyrical, and Contemporary through weekly classes. All classes have age appropriate material and music, and are geared towards correct technical placement and expression. We hope you will join us!
