The troupe, known as the Dance Stop Dancers, is made up of students who dedicate themselves to focused and extensive dance training, and who pursue a high standard of performance quality and artistry.
Dance Team is for students that want more than just their recreational classes but a lesser commitment then our dance troupe requires. This will give the students an opportunity to grow as a group with a more intense program.
At Dance Stop we offer dance classes for all levels from beginner to pre-professional. Youth dance classes are weekly from September to June. Join us anytime for class on a monthly or annual basis.
Our Pre School dance program includes dance classes for Toddlers, Pre-Schoolers, and Young Beginners. We offer Mommy & Me classes, as well as Creative Movement, Tots Tap, Acro & Musical Theatre!
Dance Camps are for our tiny dancers ages 4 - 6. Each camp includes dancing, creative movement, arts & crafts, games and lots and lots of fun! Dance Camps are offered throughout the year and in the summer.
Dance Stop's dance intensives are designed to hone a dancer’s technique & artistry while fueling their passion. Students are challenged technically & encouraged to expand their artistry while honing their skills.

One of NJ’s top dance studios. Dance Stop offers dance and voice classes for beginners to advanced professionals. Our school welcomes all who want to enjoy the art of dance, and is proud to be entering its 34th successful year. With two modern, state of the art convenient studio locations Dance Stop has become home to thousands of New Jersey's dance students.
“We accompany each child on a personal journey of movement and creativity, so that each student may blossom year after year, and be a joy to behold. We believe dance and voice lessons can engage children of all ages both mentally and physically, lead them to enjoy new skills, and strengthen the bonds with their families and peers. The joy of dance is meant to be shared!”
In 1985, Gina DeBenedetto-Forcella retired from her professional dance career and started her educational program with a very small dance studio. Her ideas and program were simple; to instill the art and joy of dance into young children.
In just a few short years, the demand for Mrs. Forcella’s dance program was overwhelming. Gina relocated to her own state of the art 7,000 square foot custom designed facility, where she is now joined by an excellent staff of educators and choreographers. Her two studio locations in Parlin and Monroe consist of eight spacious classrooms filled with wall to wall mirrors and custom lighting, custom designed wooden floors to help prevent muscle and bone stress, professional sound systems and Honeywell clean air purifiers throughout the building.
The emphasis of the school is on dance as a rewarding, fulfilling experience, and is designed to meet the needs of any student interested in the art of dance. Great care and individual attention is given in nurturing the abilities of each student to their fullest potentials. Our instructors stress not only skills in dancing, but social development and effective interaction between pupils and teachers.
