For over 25 years, American Dance Academy has been providing students of all ages with excellent dance training and we are thrilled to begin our 29th season! Classes begin in September and end with a dance recital held in spring. Summer dance programs are also available with camps and intensives.
Students are taught dance technique along with socialization, use of energy, coordination, body awareness, and confidence. Basic technique classes progress into single dance steps, combinations, and eventually into complete routines.
We do offer optional participation in our bi-annual holiday show for those dancers who wish to add an additional performance each year. For the serious and technical dancers age 8 and up, we offer the ADA Dance Company which requires many hours of weekly training and dedication. This group competes at the highest level of competition, receiving overall high scores, special awards, and choreography awards. They study year-round with guest teachers and choreographers, in addition to our fabulous staff.
We will also offer performance opportunities for those dancers ages 4 and up who wish to perform more, but cannot dedicate the hours to be on the Dance Company. These dancers can perform at parades, local sports games, participate in our annual holiday show, share their love of dance at a nursing home, and other community performances. Every performance is not mandatory- dancers attend what they can fit into their schedules!
Our mission is to provide the highest quality of dance education in a safe and nurturing environment to students of all ages and skill levels. We offer optional performance opportunities encouraging students to work to their fullest potential. We encourage them to develop self-esteem, self-assurance, self-confidence, and overall happiness which they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
We believe happy children make happy adults and hope we can make a positive difference in the lives of all the children we teach!
