We would love for you and your child to join our dance family!Established in 2009.Caitlin Benedict started South Shore Rising Stars in Apollo Beach because she wanted to share her passion of dance with her local community. Caitlin began dancing at age four and continued through the years trying every possible style of dance. She competed in numerous local and national dance competitions throughout the New England area. She knew there was no opportunity in her home state, CT, so she decided to move to Florida at the age of 19 where she started teaching for local dance studios. She opened South Shore Rising Stars at the young age of 20 with a few students, we are now going into our 7th season with hundreds of students!
