Studio Pulse + The Annex has been a refuge for me (and many others) during this time of isolation and uncertainty. It has been a crititcal part of keeping me positive and well physically and emotionally. I am truely grateful to Stephanie Wonchala (the owner) for her effors to take good care of us. She has created a space where I'm comfortable to come in person and dance. Stephanie has put a lot of effort into managing enrollment, assuring more than double the recommneded social distancing, face coverings, sanitizer, air filtration, extensive cleaning....and on and on . My dance class is one of the highlights of my week. Thank you Stephanie for helping keep me well.

I started dancing at age 26 and I've been going to classes at Studio Pulse for several years. All the teachers are wonderful professionals. They are especially great at tailoring classes to the students and taking care of beginners. Stephanie, the founder and artistic director, is so inspiring. She’s an incredible artist and generous with her talent. Her enthusiasm is infectious; her classes are so much fun. When I tried to drop out of the student company recital, she helped me push through the worst stage fright of my life. She's also incredibly down-to-earth, humble, and kind. The environment is nurturing and collaborative, not competitive. I feel inspired by other dancers, not intimidated. Dancing has helped me feel comfortable in my own skin for the first time in my life. I feel grounded and present in my body. My chronic depression and anxiety are better controlled than they’ve ever been. I feel much more powerful in my life. I am even more in touch with and better able to communicate my feelings. I'm so grateful to Pulse for helping me improve my relationship with my body. Dancing has helped me learn from my mistakes. I can even enjoy making mistakes because I know I learn from them. It’s made me more courageous. Dancing is exactly what was missing in my life and I am so happy I found a wonderful, nurturing place to learn more! It genuinely feeds my soul.

Studio Pulse is an integral part of the arts in Anchorage. Stephanie Wonchala (the owner) has provided a community for artists to collaborate and for first time movers to feel comfortable and encouraged. It’s very difficult to find a dance studio that offers both children and adult classes, but Stephanie has a wide selection of beginner, intermediate, and advanced instruction. The teachers are professional and have a great ability at adapting to cater to the students’ skill level. During the coronaviurs pandemic, Stephanie knew that her business had to pull through, so she turned on her recorder and got to work making online fitness videos to suit her clients new "at home" lifestyle. Studio Pulse is relentless and committed to providing a safe and encouraging environment for all ages, proving that dance is for everyone. I feel an enormous amount of gratitude to her craft and how the instructors share their positivity and creativity with the Anchorage community.

The classes at the annex are so fun, empowering, and absolutely effective in kicking your butt and making you feel strong. I started taking fitness classes from the Annex this year and can't recommend them enough! "Ritual" is my favorite class I've taken. It has cardio, yoga, dance, meditation, strength training, and probably even more things that I'm not listing. Stephanie is so much fun as a teacher, so welcoming, and incredibly dedicated to making sure the space is clean and distancing practices are upheld.

I first tried a few drop in classes at Studio Pulse because of how close it is to my house, but it is hands down one of the best studios I have danced at! Good adult dance classes are so hard to find, but Pulse does it right: the adult ballet classes at the main studio are well paced and accessible, and the dance workout classes at the Annex are so much fun!!! What really makes Pulse special are the amazing teachers, especially owner Stephanie Wonchala, who makes it her business to not only provide top notch dance and workout instruction, but also to cultivate a positive and welcoming energy for each class.

This dance studio is very classic and elegant. The people that work here are very dedicated and passionate about their job. Staff is very helpful and the atmosphere is something to be admired. I have visited many other dance studios while looking for a place to train my daughter and this is by far the best.

Both of my daughters absolutely LOVE Studio Pulse! My youngest moved from Mommy & Me last year to Creative Movement this year and is delighted with Ms. Theresa. My 8 yr old can’t get enough, we just added Acro to her other three dance classes. I have taken adult ballet basics, Vixen, as well as Bodied; all AMAZING classes. A well rounded studio with classes for EVERYBODY to participate it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We love this place. So glad we found it. My daughter talks about it all the time. I haven't seen her this excited in a while. We got three of her friends to start going and all three are staying too.

Our 10 year old daughter started dancing at Studio Pulse last year and has blossomed into quite the dancer. She begged us this fall to take more classes and we let her. She even talked me into taking Buti Yoga classes at The Annex! (I now have a punch card for adult classes.) I think our daughter looks up to the older dancers at Studio Pulse as if they were her big sisters. Everyone seems to watch out for each other. The instructors are positive. The atmosphere is healthy. It's a win win for our family.

Both my son and daughter dance at Pulse, in the Youth II and Youth Senior levels. Both kids are super happy and comfortable at Pulse. There is a wide variety of classes available, including ballet, jazz, modern/contemporary, hip-hop, and even tap. Pulse just opened a second studio so the offerings have expanded and more class times are available. The instructors are excellent with kids and very patient, and also teach to a high technical level. The Pulse recital this spring was phenomenal; there was so much joy and happiness, and the quality of the dancing was truly remarkable. Most importantly, my kids feel very self-confident dancing at Pulse. We all appreciate the welcoming atmosphere there, which fosters and supports their development as dancers in such a positive way.

I definitely have the opposite of a dancer's body, but I really enjoy the Dancer Body Fit class at Studio Pulse. The instructor is fun and motivating and it's a great way to get a workout in, especially on days when I don't feel like working out. Parents should consider enrolling their kids into the Studio Pulse youth programs. The end of the season recital isn't just great for a children's recital; it's a pretty spectacular show. You won't be dreading every second your kid isn't on stage. Plus, the kids look like they're having the time of their lives so win-win. BY FAR THE BEST DANCE STUDIO IN TOWN!

Anchorage is very lucky to have this studio in our community! Studio Pulse is a unique dance studio that offers classes for both adults and children. I have taken adult classes since the studio opened in 2013. My young children (ages 3 & 5) have taken classes for the past year and are continuing this upcoming year. Both the adult and children's classes are a wonderful mix of focus on technique, precision, and mastery while at the same time being fun and inviting. Studio Pulse has a friendly atmosphere that makes everyone, regardless of experience, feel welcome. The adult classes operate on a drop-in basis and no matter how much time has passed since I last attended a class, I am always warmly welcomed back. The drop-in format for adult classes works perfectly for fitting in a class when I can on top of working and parenting. The adult classes offer both combinations that build from week to week and new choreography. Therefore, you won't feel bored if you attend classes regularly but you also won't feel lost if you do not attend classes regularly. The children's classes are on a regular schedule with a variety of times offered during the school year. The instructors are beautiful dancers with great technique that provide wonderful demonstrations for the children to follow. The instructors provide discipline and have appropriate expectations while also making the classes very fun for the kids. Stephanie, the owner, is extremely friendly but also professional and listens to feedback about classes that are offered at the studio. The schedule and classes offered change based on that feedback. I cannot speak highly enough of Studio Pulse and would recommend it for anyone interested in dancing, whether you are a new beginner, a previously experienced dancer wanting to return to dancing, or a currently experienced dancer looking to progress further.

My daughter has taken class at Studio Pulse for the past 3 years, starting as a mini-ballerina and growing from there. I can't speak highly enough of this studio and her experience there. I've watched her grow as a dancer and as a person, learning technique, how to perform, and making friends along the way. As a parent, they offer classes that are affordable with top-notch instructors at prices far less than other studios in town. There's a lovely lobby with a chandelier and you can even buy your student's gear at the front desk (I did!). I have also taken adult drop-in classes when I can find the time, and they're so much fun in a judgment-free environment.

This studio is a welcoming and energetic environment for dancers of all ages. As an adult attending classes, I know I will be challenged to grow in my technique in a positive atmosphere. The children's program is an excellent foundation for youth looking to perform and one day seek dance careers. There is a healthy variety of classes available for some of the best class prices in town! Definitely visit for a drop in class!

We switched to this school a few weeks ago and I am so impressed. My daughter’s skills have improved tremendously in just those few weeks. The teachers are fun but focused, age-appropriate but with high expectations for proper form and attentive behavior. Thrilled to be a part of this community!

Studio Pulse is incredible! I've been to dance studios all over the world and Pulse is at the top of my list! They have friendly and credible instructors. Including dance/fitness styles for all ages and levels. I can't say enough great things about the studio owner Stephanie Wonchala. She has high standards to provide the best quality classes, facilities and experience. Check them out asap!

I can do nothing but rave about Studio Pulse! <3 From my first day on the company, the importance placed on welcoming all skill levels, ages, body types, and abilities really blew me away; this has become my favorite thing about the studio. On top of that, Pulse is extremely clean, organized, and has so many personal touches that really take it above and beyond. And of course, the staff and classes are absolutely stellar. Zero complaints; Pulse has it all!
