Is your child interested in being a part of the wonderful and fun ADA Dance Company next year?  Sign up below to be added to our Zoom meeting scheduled on April 20th. 

Our ADA Company consists of dancers from various levels who are dedicated to dance, love to perform, and are looking to be challenged in class, rehearsals, performances, and competitions.  Each company level is designed for the age group and harvests self-confidence, teamwork, and most importantly, guidance tailored for each specific student. This safe and healthy environment is great for young dancers looking to perform more often and further their studies.  Many of our former ADA company dancers have gone on to major and minor in dance and the performing arts in college, become part of college dance teams, become members of college dance groups, or made dance part of their professional careers. Our dancers are guided with advice to further their dancing in whichever capacity they wish as they move forward with healthy and happy lives.

Our Dance Company works on a year-round basis and thrives on the technical and performance aspect of all genres of dance.  Our Dance Company members are invited or accepted by audition.  All company members must attend all required classes and rehearsals at American Dance Academy and carry themselves as role models in the studio and when we are out in the community.

Want to be part of the Dance Company Family?  Sign up now to hear more!!

ADA is thrilled to now carry the Zyia Activewear line and with limited people allowed in the studio, we are excited to offer this shopping experience online! Zyia is the official activewear of the Utah Jazz Dancers and many compare the Zyia brand to Lulu and Athleta ....but at a more reasonable price! Zyia uses a 4-way stretch, compression, form, fit, and comfort to design their activewear. Tops are made with an anti-microbial fabric and they carry both adult and children sizes! This page will feature new items released weekly and popular items people love and can be used to place an order.
