About Us

All classes are taught by Ms Barbara and her daughter, Kristen Krauss.  They have both danced from preschool age and have studied all styles of dance from various teachers in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Indiana.  They regularly attend workshops and teacher training programs to keep current with the newest styles and techniques.

Ms Barbara began dance lessons at the age of 4 in the Baltimore area.  Even though she was terrified of her strict, classical ballet mistress, she always knew dance would be a big part of her life.  Never wanting to be in the spotlight on stage, teaching was always the goal.
“My inspiration comes from my students, but initially it came from the many wonderful teachers I was privileged to studied with.  Mrs. Mildred Lappe, Dance Playhouse, was my friend and mentor who taught me how to teach and guided me through my beginning years of owning, teaching, and directing a dance studio.  Now, after 33 years at Dance Unlimited, I am tremendously inspired by my daughter and teaching partner, Kristen Krauss, who shares her love of dance in a unique, fun, and exciting atmosphere that allows our students to grow beyond their expectations.”
