The Studio has a rich history in central Iowa. It was built in 1954 by Ellen Belle Foster, a talented tap dance and ballet teacher who taught from 1930 through 1965. Well known in Indianola and central Iowa, she touched thousands of lives introducing them to dance and the stage. The Studio served as a location for the renowned Foster Powell Dance Studio with instructor Richard Powell continuing her legacy from 1965– 2017.


The security of our clients is very important to us at the Studio. We have camera security throughout the property, inside and out, including the parking lot and a classroom monitor in the waiting room.

For questions, more information or to see our space, email or call us at 515-238-9972.
