Join Us!

The Service Bureau Dance would like to invite your children to join our League and Assembly dances. For over 90 years, the St. Louis Service Bureau has been dedicated to promoting education and etiquette and dance classes that benefit participating families and the broader community.

As a charitable organization, the Service Bureau donates the profits from these dances through its Foundation, which supports over 50 local charities each year.  By participating in the Bureau’s League and Assembly dances, your family becomes a part of this meaningful philanthropic effort.  

Mission Statement

The mission of the Service Bureau is to provide educational dance and etiquette lessons to school age children in order to raise charitable donations for other nonprofit organizations in the St. Louis Metropolitan area.


The St. Louis Service Bureau dances have been a St. Louis tradition since 1930.  Today, over 600 children are involved in the dance programs. The younger classes, 6th grade through 8th grade are taught by professionals and overseen by our board members. Our formal Assembly Dances (grades 9,10,11) are held twice a year.  All our dances are chaperoned by our Board Members who serve as role models to our students.   Our dance programs are both educational and charitable.  Each dance class selects a local organization to sponsor for the season.
