The Studio

The Studio

Shen Tao Studio was founded to help dancers, athletes, teachers and anyone looking to cultivate the deep connection between the cognitive mind and the neuro-muscular system, and to use that connection to develop their own individual gifts. With a unique, personalized approach, Shen Tao Studio assists individuals in learning how to help themselves and others.



The studio is located on the NE corner of 23rd and Park Avenue S. The intimate yet state-of-the-art studio accommodates nine students at a time, allowing for individual attention and personalized classes.
