The "Clovis Stars" are proud to be one of the oldest established dance studios in the Clovis area. Established in 1983 by Barbara Ballard, the Fresno Stars (located in Clovis) quickly became a well recognized household name. The Fresno Stars have produced many successful dancers and nationally recognized choreographers, including: Brittney (Ballard) Swift, current Assistant Director and 2004 Stars Choreographer of the Year, Nikki Smith, current Artistic Director and former Elite National Dance Champion, Michelle Parley, current tap instructor, and 49er Goldrush Director, among others who will always consider the "Clovis Stars" their home. In 1998 Julie Smith took over ownership of the Studio and changed the name to Stars Dance Academy. Under Julie's direction, the Studio has nearly quadrupled in size and has won several National Dance Championships including 2006 National Sweepstakes Champions, 2006 Stars National Sportsmanship Champions, 2006 Stars State Sweepstakes Champions and 2006 Stars State Team Champions. The "Clovis Stars" are currently under new ownership with the direction of Deanne Edwards, who vows to continue the long history of promoting self esteem in children, through dance.
