Mary Ann Fortune has been studying dance since the age of 3. She continued her training throughout high school and at the age of 17 opened her studio in Mechanicville, NY. Mary Ann attended Union College in Schenectady, NY and continued to teach while advancing her own technical skills in dance. Upon receiving her B.S. degree in psychology, she was able to devote herself full time to her ultimate dream - DANCE!
Mary Ann continues to study today with master teachers for her own self-enjoyment, to perfect her technique, and to bring new and innovative ideas to her students.
Mary Ann Fortune’s Dance Studio offers pre-school classes as well as beginner through advanced and adult classes in tap, ballet, pointe, jazz, hip-hop, modern, lyrical and gymnastics. Our faculty consists of highly qualified instructors who have taught at the studio from 4 to 30 years. Classes are offered Monday through Friday with mid-morning, after school, and evening classes.
