About Us


  Director Eliza Harwood-Watson founded Harwood-Watson Dance Studios in Orlando in 1997 with husband Kip Watson. Harwood-Watson is based upon the concept that in every child there is a seed.  The art and discipline of dance involves commitment, design, rhythm, patterns and movement that is enriching to all whether or not a child pursues a career in dance.  We welcome all ages and experience levels encouraging the growth and development of the “artist within” while emphasizing proper dance technique.   

Classical Ballet Training


Eliza Harwood-Watson understands that it takes time to develop technique and artistry, and she really enjoys teaching children and adults; her technique is based upon Vaganova style classical ballet.

Modern, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Musical-Theater, Contemporary and More (when we can fit it in!).


Besides just being fun, different dance genres help students to expand their vocabularies and find their personal expression.
