About Our Studio

Dream Dance Conservatory

DREAM Dance Conservatory staff are highly trained professionals, who have years of professional training and performing experience but also have a passion for educating and training dancers of all generations.  Our staff encourages creativity within the dancer and inspires an appreciation for the art of dance. Dance is an art form that connects the mind, body, and spirit, developing individuals of all ages physiologically, psychologically, and sociologically.  We offer classes for the dancer who wants to explore a weekly class in a particular style or for the more serious dancer who desires more extensive training. DREAM offers dance classes 6 days a week for recreational or competitive dancers. DREAM is located in Mansfield, Texas in a new facility. We have a 15,00 square foot building with 5 studios and a large lobby area for the parents. We have a variety of studio class sizes, multiple restrooms, and places for parents to wait. All our floors are sprung to help protect the dancers' body while dancing. We would love to have you schedule a tour with us.

 DREAM Dance Conservatory offers classes to all ages in:

  • Classical Ballet
  • Modern/Lyrical/Contemporary
  • Jazz
  • Tap
  • Hip- Hop
  • Hip- Hop Cheer
  • Drill Team
  • Tumble
  • Acro

DREAM Dance Conservatory is dedicated to keeping a wholesome and value-centered atmosphere, so our music and costuming selections are age-appropriate and parent-approved.  We also strive to maintain the integrity of the true art of dance.  We introduce dance history and teach proper terminology in our classes. We do not compromise on the foundation of all dance which is ballet. Additionally (so that each dancer might strive for excellence), we correct placement and technique using encouragement and positive motivation.

Dream Dance Conservatory is proud to offer Recreational and competitive level dance classes to students ages 2-18 years.  Classes start with combination ballet/tap/tumble combinations. As students get older and have the basic foundations they can explore other styles of dance.  Younger classes of 5 years and under we make sure the teacher/student ratio is small and appropriate.  Our 2-3 Y classes are capped at 8 students and our 3-4 year and 4-5 year classes are capped at 10-12 students. As students get older and train more, some kids might find interest in the competitive dance direction and others will continue to love dance as a recreational activity.  We have a variety of combination classes for ages 4 and up. For example ballet/jazz/ hip hop or ballet/jazz/lyrical, plus many other options. Hip-hop is offered for ages 5 and up and is a large part of the interest of some of our dancers. What is great about Dream Dance Conservatory is we offer various levels of training for each age group. We make sure the recreational or competitive dancer is challenged and having fun.  Some kids desire to get training for drill teams, show choirs, talent shows, and more.  We can help achieve your child’s potential in their dance technique to meet their goals.

Taylor Diehl

Dance Instructor

Born and raised in Irving, TX, I've always had a deep love for the Lord and recently found a wonderful local church here in Mansfield. From a young age, I discovered my love for dancing at Dance Machines Dance Studio. Starting at the age of 5, I embarked on a thrilling journey that led me to become the captain of the cheer squad in middle school, JV, and varsity! 

Over the years, I had the incredible opportunity to perform in various dance competitions, including the prestigious Tremaine competitions. I immersed myself in different dance styles such as jazz, ballet, lyrical, tap, clogging, Pom, and contemporary.  Teaching dance and tumble became my way of giving back to the community. I started sharing my passion at the young age of 14, and continued throughout college. After completing my undergraduate degree at Baylor University and my graduate degree at the University of Texas at Arlington, I pursued a full-time career as a Family Nurse Practitioner.  But my love for dance never faded, and I recently got back into teaching to help the children in our community develop their own love for this beautiful art form.

I'm thrilled to be a part of this wonderful community, and I can't wait to meet all of you and share my passion for dance!
