About the Studio

Our Facilities
Our state of the art facility includes 2 dance rooms complete with hardwood sprung dance floors and high ceilings, a large waiting room with 36" flat screen viewing monitors for each dance room, and a student lounge in the back where older students can relax, do homework and prepare for their classes.

We have special top of the line floating dance floor that is built with a special cushion for dancers. We put the floor in the studio to help prevent injury and to help dancers work on attaining height in jumps and leaps.


The Yearly Recital
American Dance Academy has been providing students with an exciting opportunity to expand their dance training and perform in a professionally run show-the recital. Many of you may remember these images from your own childhood. It's a rite of passage for thousands of youngsters, a chance to shine in front of family and friends that they anticipate with nervous excitement.

A big part of the dance training process includes learning through performance. The experience helps to build self-esteem, self-assurance and contributes to a sense of confidence. Performance opportunities also contribute to success in various aspects of a child's non-dance activities, including better in-school presentations, better social skills, stronger interview skills for future college or job opportunities and preparation for professional performance career.

The choreography process is a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps the child develop retention skills, and working with classmates to create a group performance sets the example of the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best end result.

The recital offers our students and their families a professionally directed performance allowing our students the opportunity to present the results of an entire year's hard work, dedication and progress. Recitals have proven to be a special experience children truly love and treasure through their lives.

Our 2018-19 Recital will be held at St Mark's High School on:   May 10th & 11th 2019

Holiday Show  
ADA proudly puts on a bi-annual Holiday Show. Our Holiday Show. Registrations are held in September at the studio and rehearsals are held each week until the show in December. Participation is optional but has proven to be a wonderful and fun experience for all involved!

It is a toe tappin’, high-energy show, fun for all ages. From Gingerbread Cookies, to Angels, to Snowmen, Elves and Santa’s Helpers (perhaps even Santa will show up!)- You are guaranteed to have a great time participating and/or watching our show!


"Caitlyn had a great time at your summer camp this year! We are newbies to ADA and I wanted to thank you and your wonderful staff for such a wonderful first year. You have a very warm and friendly atmosphere that has really made dancing fun for Caitlyn!"
