Our Mission

We believe in enriching the lives of our students through movement and music. Our goal is to create a positive and motivating environment where students can achieve their best through hard work and dedication.

It is our mission at Academy of Dance to use dance to help students develop a strong self esteem while learning physically and mentally. We want our students to believe they can accomplish whatever they put their mind and effort to.


We accept ages 3 and up for classes in tap, ballet, jazz, gymnastics, and hip hop. Weekly classes are offered August through May, as well as the opportunity to audition for our dance company and perform in our yearly recital.

Academy of Dance offers the best training and most qualified teachers. We realize that each dancer has different strengths and aspirations, and not everyone wants to become a professional dancer. But it is our goal to give each student the best dance training possible so that you, the parent, are getting the most for your money and your child is gaining the physical abilities and knowledge required to dance. All our teachers are educated in ballet terminology, have attended dance conventions, and have trained in all forms of dance for many years.

Through hard work and dedication, many of our students have gone on to study dance in college, dance professionally, and teach dance across the nation.

Dance Company and Awards

Where the passion for dance begins with technique.

At Academy of Dance we offer a highly competitive competition team. It is comprised of dedicated students who want to take their dancing to the next level, have a love for dance, a spirit of a performer, and a desire to be pushed. The Company is composed of dancers ranging in ages from 6-18. The company takes extra classes year round as well as performs throughout the area and competes in at least one competition per year.

Our 2011-2012 team had an AMAZING YEAR, winning first place in all the competitions entered at the national Tremaine Dance Competition in Dallas, TX. Three of our company members, Kennedy Hanson, Imani Pierson and Hannah Cariker, also made it through to the second level of auditions which started with 800 dancers. We are so proud of them.
