about sdc


Summit Dance Co. enriches lives with an innovative dance and movement education in a unique family-oriented and community-strong environment. Our motivational faculty encourages every dancer to strive to new heights in dance and life.

Summit Dance Co. was founded in June 2016 by mother-daughter team, Gayle Leyde and Amanda (Leyde) Kaneshiro. With many years of experience in the dance business industry and encouragement from supportive family and friends, this dynamic duo made a heartfelt decision to develop a new innovative studio, combining a firm belief in a quality dance education, family, and community. All dancers are encouraged to excel to new heights and reach their personal goals. Along with a strong technical dance education, we enrich the experience by creating relationships between our faculty and students to mentor and inspire them to find the best version of themselves as dancers and community leaders.


In spirit of our mission, we have a class for everyone to enjoy! Our goal is to meet the community needs, if there is a class not offered, just ask! We offer classes for all ages two through adult, with styles including tap, ballet, jazz, contemporary, lyrical, hip hop, musical theater, conditioning, acro, pointe, yoga and zumba, etc. We also offer a pre-professional dance program for dancers, ages 5-19, who wish to take a more serious and dedicated path in dance.

Come reach new heights with us at Summit Dance Co.!
