2017 at Miss Mona's promises to be a thrilling year! Celebrating our 60th year serving the young performers of the Roanoke Valley, Salem, Botetourt, and the surrounding areas, now is the time to join Miss Mona's and find your individual talents!

We are more than just your neighborhood performing arts center. We consider our studio to be our "studio family" and our staff is commited to providing excellence in arts training in a family-friendly atmosphere. We are a tradition and a family legacy in the Roanoke Valley.


At Miss Mona's, we believe:

That every child deserves the chance to dance. Limitations and differences disappear on the dance floor, where children can set individual goals and work to achieve them; where they can be their best selves, and leave their troubles behind; where lifelong friendships are made, and leaders are born. We offer individual attention and instruction to every student. At Miss Mona’s, we want to see every child reach their potential. Not just on stage, but in life.

What's new at Miss Mona's? 

Our well-rounded training offers opportunities for our students to study voice, dance, and drama in classes and camps. Students can be found in a wide variety of area performances, showing just how much they love what they do!

Miss Mona's is SO PROUD to have had 10 of our students and 2 of our teachers featured in TWO fantastic area summer musicals!

We are proud of all of you! 

Miss Mona's is dedicated to finding our students' potential and supporting them in their endeavors. Whether it's gaining the confidence to speak in front of a class, or stepping out on stage for the first time in their very first performance, no achievement is too great or too small, and we applaud them all!
