Southern Dance Theatre is South Florida’s Premier Dance School

We’re now thriving in our BOYNTON BEACH LOCATION at BBHS.

Southern Dance Theatre offers a variety of dance classes for early childhood through adult students and for dancers of all levels.  We’ve been a recognized leader in dance education in South Florida’s performing arts community since 1983.

Our experience ranges from instructing beginner to pre-professional level students. Many of our student graduates have gone on to professional companies and schools of higher education such as The Juilliard Conservatory, Martha Graham Dance Company, and New World School of the Arts in Miami.

Our Big Announcement

After 39 years leading Southern Dance Theatre, Founder Penni Greenly retired in June 2022, passing the pointe shoes to new Co-Owners Kerri Fouchet and Lori Morales to continue the Southern Dance Theatre legacy.

Welcome Message from Southern Dance Theatre Co-Owners

We are truly honored, humbled and EXCITED to have the opportunity to continue the legacy of Southern Dance Theatre. Our passion and drive to push Southern Dance Theatre (with all of its students and faculty) to a new level of greatness is unmatched. There is such power behind the phrase “I trained at Southern Dance Theatre”. We know this from personal experience. We are former students turned teachers, now owners who want this mindset to continue to live on.

We intend to build on the foundation that Ms. Penni has passed to us with grace, honor, compassion and drive and continue to provide top notch training from a well rounded and diverse staff.

Please give us support as we embark on the journey of this once in a lifetime transition. We ask that you continue to believe in us, stick by our side and together we will SHINE.

– Kerri Fouchet & Lori Morales, Southern Dance Theatre Co-Owners
