About Us

ACPT visit1 Welcome to our Studio!

First Coast Center for the Arts is under the direction of Hollie Stephens. Hollie opened the studio in 2004. After 26 years of dance leadership experience, including dancing abroad, she was able to find her dream of opening her own studio. Hollie spent 10 years as an instructor for the Community Education Program. Hollie has also dedicated many seasons of service to the Jacksonville Jaguars as a dancer and choreographer for the Jacksonville Roar.

At First Coast Center for the Arts we believe that dance has the power to promote self-esteem and life skills that go beyond those acquired at our studio. Our classes are designed to develop a true appreciation and healthy competitive spirit for our dancers.
