Trudy's School of Dance
Celebrating 70 years in 2010!

It's an amazing feat for any business to thrive for 70 years! Keeping it in the family is what makes this studio special. Trudy Oltmann founded the studio in 1939. It has been kept alive by her two daughters and granddaughter ever since. That's three generations of dancing family traditions.

Linda Oltmann Walker, the current studio director and daughter of Mrs. Trudy is also an inductee to the Shaggers Hall of Fame for her accolades and achievements with South Carolina's official dance... The Shag. Naturally, it's the place to learn it. Classes are also offered in ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical and hip hop. Available from ages preschool through adult.
