Aileron Performing Arts Studio cover
Mission To provide a level of dance instruction that helps children grow and understand movement to their greatest capacity, and also focuses on teamwork, perseverence, and artistry.
Description AILERON Performing Arts Studio was founded by husband - and - wife duo Blake and Stephanie Roeder.

Our studio is located on 3991 E Williamsburg Rd. just east of Sandston. In World War II, the area was home to the "Elko Tract", a piece of government land used for the war effort. Soldiers built a replica of the Richmond Airport (known as the "decoy airfield"), erected buildings, and installed lights to mimic Richmond from above. If an attack was imminent, all power to Richmond would be shut off, and Elko, "the lost city" would light up, fooling the enemy into attacking a ghost town.

To honor the area, we chose the theme of "flight". Dance is often the pursuit of flight, defying gravity for fractions of a second, always striving to go a little bit higher. It's about never giving up, and always doing your best.

The word "Aileron" means "little wing" in French. It refers to a pair of adjustable flaps on the wings of an airplane. Ailerons work in pairs to stabilize flight and maintain balance. This represents our commitment to teamwork, great communication, and superior customer service.

We love dance, and we love watching students discover the power of movement for themselves.
