Dance Theatre International’s mission is to empower the next generation. DANCE programs nurture joy in the proficiency of each dancer’s chosen genre. THEATRE presentations support individuality. We welcome INTERNATIONAL diversity and collaborators.



“The friendly atmosphere and the dedication of the teachers who are committed to the excellence in the teaching, communicating and techniques make DTI programs and Ferla Ballet a fantastic dance studio for our children to attend.

Also the director Ms. Maggie is extremely enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and talented. Her energy is inspiring and builds confidence and style which shows in our children’s performances. Highly recommended!”

Chen- Parent

“We have had such a wonderful and positive experience with Dance Theatre International over the last 5 years! Mr. and Mrs. Ferla, the studio owners, really take the time to prepare and develop each dancer’s technique and confidence as they build on their skills while teaching them a love for dance.

The dancers get to learn and experience a variety of different dance styles, participate in performances, including the Nutcracker, and even flourish to a level to compete.

The Ferla’s dedicate their time and talents to inspire the kids. We have loved watching the beautiful growth in our daughter, both personally and as a dancer!!”

Hossain – Parent

“I had the chance to teach a Master Class for Maggie and Xavier’s students. I was compelled by the high level and the dedication of their students but I was not surprised. Maggie and Xavier use their beautiful professional career experiences and transmit their knowledge and passion to help every single student improve. Dance Theatre International is great place for all students who want to become professionals or for those who simply want the pleasure of dancing.”
