Our Story

We are a dream come true studio. Our founder, Debbie Taylor had the dream. She wanted to create a studio where she could share her love of dance with others and everyone was welcome. This vision was shared by her protege, Angel Balsavich. Since 2003 the two have worked together bringing their passion for dance to others. They have especially worked to further the Latin Dance Scene in Oklahoma. Over the years, the hunt for the perfect "home" was quite the adventure. They tried different locations, but none were quite right. The perfect place was found at the Old School Business Center in 2013. To commemorate the occasion, Adelante received it's new name. Debbie's vision had come to fruition. When she first told Angel of the plans at Old School, Angel was not sure but trusted Debbie. Debbie and her ability to see past 'What is' and see 'What can be' is what drove the studio on. Angel took over ownership of the studio in 2020 amid the COVID-19 Pandemic. Debbie hopes to return to teaching and still holds an important role at the studio. The studio is home to instructors of all different types of dance that includes but is not limited to, Salsa, Casino Rueda, Bachata, Merengue, Belly Dancing, Tribal Belly Dancing, Kizomba, Zouk, Arial Silks, Clogging, Line Dancing, Country Dancing, and various children's classes.
