The Academy of Expressive Dance

Sparkle with us!

We've been raising the "barre" since 1991

At The Academy of Expressive Dance, respect is the underlying factor in all of our programs--respect for the art form we are learning, respect for others, and respect for ourselves. 

The Academy prides itself on being a top-notch, performance-based school-- where teamwork, kindness and friendship blossom.   We teach professional dance balanced with fun, creativity, and laughter.  Andrea, the director and instructor, has been teaching since she was 15 years old, and has attended untold teacher workshops and training as well as being certified with the C.D.T.A.,  

If you are looking for a school that encourages good manners, has "old-fashioned" values, focuses on teamwork rather than competition, and that treats each student as an individual, you have come to the right spot!
