Schramel Conservatory of Dance
The official school of nobt
Marjorie Hardwick Schramel and Gregory Schramel founded Schramel Conservatory of Dance in 2002 after more than twenty years working as professional ballet dancers. Since then, the school has produced dancers who have gone on to have professional dance careers, students who have attained dance degrees, and apprenticed dancers who will one day enter ballet companies nationally. The school has won the prestigious "Outstanding School" awarded by the Youth America Grand Prix in 2006.
Training Dancers at the Highest Level— Schramel Conservatory of Dance (SCOD) offers classes for children and adults in classical ballet, modern, tap, yoga, and Pilates® with highly trained professional teachers. All of our teachers are classically trained ballet dancers who have had careers in professional dance companies throughout the United States and internationally.
