Happiness thru dance!

Founder and Artistic Director Alzine Cuppett (1927-2012) received her early dance training from Gene Kelly, and later was a Rockette at Radio City Music Hall in New York. With her daughters and other family members, she has made Cuppett's a true family business.  From the earliest days when the studio was in her Vienna home, the Cuppett Performing Arts Center has maintained that family-friendly atmosphere.

Daily dance classes for children and adults are offered in five professionally-equipped studios conveniently located in downtown Vienna just behind Whole Foods Market, in the beautifully remodeled Park Plaza Center, and now on Maple Avenue directly across from the Amphora Restaurant.  We offer a wide variety of classes from the beginner/recreational student to the more serious professional-level dancer.  Classes include ballet in the Russian and Italian (Cecchetti) methods, including pointe, as well as tap, jazz, modern, character, lyrical/contemporary, hip hop, acro-dance and musical theatre.  Professional certifications include Dance Masters of America, the Cecchetti Council of America, and Rockette Alumnae.
Proudly entering our 54th year, we are passionate about the dance arts and are dedicated to showing that passion through our teaching!
