Surge Studio is a true dance home away from home and fosters a culture of family from us to you! If you're just getting started on your dance journey, know that you are welcomed and supported. 

Surge Studio's goal is to help you develop a deep knowledge of dance techniques, grow in confidence, and develop skills that go beyond the dance floor. Let's pursue your goals together. Come surge with us!


From humble beginnings of a dream, a passion, and pure love for dance, Surge Studio was founded in February 2014 by New Jersey native, Carly Harper. Initially, our Surge Studio Competition Dance Team members and adult class attendees surged with us throughout NY. We were thrilled in September 2014 when Surge found its first home at Colonial Plaza in Congers, NY.

Our drive has always been to provide students with an escape from reality and enter the world of pure bliss through dance. We have been driven to provide a judgement free space to support students through the learning process. Our Surge family gets stronger in mind, body, and spirit on and off the dance floor. We've been able to surge with our community, by offering a free yoga class at Valley Cottage Library, and dance sessions at Willow Grove Elementary School, Nyack High School, Thiells Elementary School, and Haverstraw Elementary School! We've drawn attention from Go 2 Talent Agency in Los Angeles, and clients from Kentucky, New Jersey, Texas, and even Kenya! May 2020 was the end of an amazing chapter in Congers, NY. We are now surging with you through our online platform!

Our team truly embodies our core values to move with passion, live by integrity, and make the commitment to give our 100%.

“Feel the beat, live the rhythm.” -owner, Carly Harper
