Illusion Dance Center is located in New Braunfels, Texas just outside of The Gruene Historical District.  Illusion started as a dream of owner, Katie Kolinek, 10 years ago! She was and is passionate about enriching students lives with the art of dance.  It has blossomed into something she never could have imagined creating.  We are so proud to have had the opportunity to serve the community and children of New Braunfels for 10 years, and are excited to do so for many years to come! 

Illusion offers a wide variety of dance education and techniques for students ages 2 and up.  Our classes are designed to provide a step-by-step syllabus for dance education in accordance with the student’s physical, mental, and emotional development.  Advancement through the curriculum is related more to the student’s progress than to age.  It is the policy of the studio to provide the highest standards of cutting-edge, correct dance education while maintaining a fun, wholesome, and positive environment for everyone.  Every effort is made by our staff to develop the individual talents of each student.  Come in for your free trial class today!  We would love to have you as a part of our community and family!
