About the Studio


Total Eclipse Dance Studio was founded by Alicia Santamaria, and daughter Gemma Joyce. Both students of Radio City Music Hall dancer, and dance studio owner Paulette Harwood. After spending many years learning and teaching, they felt the need for Paulette’s spirit and knowledge to live on after her retirement. Being a part of a dance studio is like being a part of a family, and TEDS wants to keep that alive. With an incredible faculty, unbelievable support, and great determination, Alicia and Gemma hope this studio provides its students (of ALL ages) with something truly special and unique. “Our hope is that every person who walks into our studio feels welcome, comfortable, and confident.”
