Pulse Dance Company, formerly called “Full-FX”, was
founded 25 years ago and their humble beginnings started
with just 8 passionate and talented dancers. Today Pulse
is one of the largest and longest running youth/teen training
programs and performance dance companies in our region.
The company consists of 100+ dancers from over 20 towns
and cities. In addition to attending dance competitions
Pulse has a huge enthusiasm for social issues and causes
and the dancers are involved in many local projects that
“give back”.

Access to top-notch faculty is a driving force behind the
group’s success and longevity as technically trained
dancers and versatile performers. The dancers are
constantly motivated through a contagious spirit, positive
energy, and an abundance of opportunities for them to
explore the world of dance both inside the walls of the
studio and beyond.
