The Dance Academy is a unique hybrid dance training facility that offers competitive dance, as well as a performance art and concert dance track with our pre-professional ballet program, Ballet Academy North. Our professional and devoted staff share passion and love for dance in a positive, nurturing, and inspiring atmosphere. It is our desire in the training of every child, that the discipline, responsibility, perseverance, and integrity that is instilled through dance will carry over into every aspect of the student’s life. Our students are challenged both as dancers, and as young people who can affect their world in a positive way. Whether your dancer is interested in being part of a competitive dance company, or performing for the community with our pre-professional ballet academy, or just taking classes to become a capable and confident dancer, they will receive training to instill artistry, versatility, and a strong technical foundation for a successful future in all genres of dance.
WHO WE ARE
This is the best studio we have ever had the pleasure of being part of. There is a warm, family-friendly atmosphere here. The girls are competitive, focused, and supportive of each other. The instructors are top notch: Maria, Kelly, Brittany, April, Shelby, Leah, and Jaclyn have always been 100% professional and my daughter truly learns from them. My daughter has grown so much as a dancer under their tutelage. Kelly Yankle’s Ballet Academy North Company is incredible. Also, the studio is extremely organized and well-run, a testament to Maria’s expertise. I always feel “in the know”, way ahead of time, with their great communication. The ultimate litmus test, of course, is that my daughter loves it!!
We are extremely impressed with the degree of excellence demonstrated at the studio. The director and instructors provide opportunities for our daughter to build lasting relationships while nurturing her passion for dance.
The studio is a blessing for our daughter and family. Our daughter has been able to grow and develop as a leader and dancer.
I couldn’t be happier with our decision to come to the studio. I can’t believe the transformation my daughter has made in just a short time. It’s been a very positive environment for her and I love their attention to detail.
My darling dancer has been there for 6 years. I brought her to this studio when she was only in Kindergarten and now she has blossomed into a beautiful technical 6th grade dancer. I must attribute this to all of the amazing teachers that touched her life and had a hand in her learning there. This has been our studio home and dance family since she was 6 years old and I do not foresee us going anywhere anytime soon because we are happy and love it there ❤
