A wave is washing up in South Walton — a dance wave, that is.

Santa Rosa Beach resident Andrea Alfieri started 30A Dancewave to teach young dancers jazz and modern techniques with an underlying vein of classic ballet.

“I’d like to teach them to be very versatile dancers,” said Alfieri. “I am a true believer in dance versatility, but strong classical ballet training is extremely important and is our base.”

Since moving to the area two years ago, Alfieri, a lifelong dancer, singer and performer, has been successful in starting the dance program for girls of all ages at The Studio in Seaside.

The instructor started the company in August 2010 with 18 students, and just more than two years later that number has grown to 45 students, who range in ages from 2 to 14.

If you’ve attended the Flutterby Festival, The South Walton holiday parade, or a show at the Seaside Repertory Theater, you’ve seen the 30A Dancewave.
