Celebrating 18 Years in the Peoria and Washington Area!


Water Street Dance Company began in downtown Peoria, IL on Water Street. After 8 years of success on Water Street, we relocated to Washington, IL. Although the studio is now called “Just Dance,” our Competitive performers still use the team name “Water Street Dance Company” to honor our 18 years of competition achievement.
