About Us

Betty Jean’s Dance Studio opened its doors in 1982, and we have been providing quality dance instruction to the local community ever since! Our dancers have achieved great accomplishments over the years – both personally and professionally!

Betty Jean Laffin

Betty Jean has been operating her dance studio for 32 years, with more than 40 years of experience teaching the art of dance. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Marist College, and has been dancing since she was 2 years of age! Her philosophy is to always build confidence and self-esteem within the youth. Whether your child has natural ability or needs assistance  in coordination, we’re sure you’ll agree, Betty Jean’s is the place to be!

Tanya Beyea

Tanya, Betty Jean’s sister, has learned the art of teaching dance and managing the business throughout her 30 years of experience. After attending Hofstra University, majoring in Communications and minoring in Dance, Tanya immediately went to work at Betty Jean’s, and has not stopped teaching and working since! Tanya is the coordinator of our award-winning dance competition team, and the creative mind behind the scenes of the day to day  operations of the dance studio. Just ask anyone…Tanya is always there to help with a smile on her face!
