Why Choose The Dance Academy?


    For 20 years we operated as Star Dancers Studio, and trained many young women to be skilled, confident, and successful inside and outside of the studio.  Our program was focused on drill team, and we had a 99 percent success rate of dancers making their middle school and high school dance teams. Our legacy of producing strong dancers who live a life of service and leadership continues as studio alumni have become captains and colonels on school dance teams, social and drill officers, on the Texas Tech Pom Squad, Aggie Pom Squad, Kilgore Rangerettes, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, UT Dance Teams, Texas State Strutters, as well as current instructors and team coaches at the studio.


    With the addition of Ballet Academy North, the pre-professional training academy and company, and the award winning REALM hip hop company, our studio began to evolve into a unique hybrid studio like no other. The Dance Academy was born. We are no longer just a drill team focused studio, but a training facility that offers the highest caliber of dance education in all dance genres. We have gone above and beyond and now proudly offer the best of competitive dance and performance art, providing pre-professional training to instill artistry, versatility and a strong technical foundation for a future in all areas of dance. Our competition companies have received awards in the highest echelons of dance, as well receiving such opportunities to perform in music videos with REALM Hip Hop Company. Our Ballet Academy North Company members have gained acceptance and received scholarships into some of the most prestigious ballet schools in the world, such as; The Houston Ballet School, Ellison Ballet, The Rock School, Boston Ballet,The Cincinnati Ballet Academy, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and American Ballet Theatre in New York City, just to name a few.  Our faculty is comprised of degreed and seasoned professionals specializing in the competition, commercial and concert dance world who are adequately equipped to guide your dancer in achieving their personal dance goals. Whether it is recreational dance classes, an award-winning competition company, our pre-professional concert dance academy, or our incomparable children’s dance program, we have something for you at The Dance Academy.


 In an area where competition dance reigns, we are thrilled to have multiple award winning competition dance companies.  In addition, we are proud to have a pre-professional ballet academy and company, that focuses on performance art, enabling us to be an organization that is built on a foundation that fosters proper dance education, as well as giving back to the community through our outreach programs and community performances, such as The Nutcracker and more.  We cannot exist in the dance world without acknowledging where we came from, the history of dance as an art form. We seek to educate dancers and their families with accredited information from higher echelons of the professional dance world, university dance education, and certified, trained professionals. We acknowledge that proper dance education is prestigious and obscure, and we work tirelessly to inform and inspire the community. We believe in the arts and the positive impact it has in the world. The Dance Academy is an organization that will offer guidance that best suits your dancer, in areas including but not limited to; individualized training tracks, injury prevention, nutrition, audition information, information on college and professional dance preparation, and all the details that encompass a dancer’s life. This type of specialized counsel is unique to The Dance Academy and Ballet Academy North. We believe in delivering a high caliber of training in a nurturing atmosphere.  Our training methods are equally focused on shaping an individual to have respect, integrity,  strength of character, moral virtue, work ethic, dedication, as well as a versatile artistic and technical foundation in all genres of dance.
