Where Big Dreams Start Little
And Every Child Is A Star


What We Believe

It is our philosophy that by providing a quality dance education with performance opportunities, dancers will build friendships, gain a strong work ethic, and be part of an amazing team.

Our staff is full of enthusiastic and knowledgeable people who create a classroom balanced with hard work and fun.


  • Our daughtehas been taking dance classes at Academy of Dance Arts for the last 8 years. Emily and her staff have proven to be talented, delightful individuals that truly care about the happiness of their students.  Through this experience, my daughter has grown as a dancer, learned the value of hard workand developed an appreciation for the art of dance.

  • During our 9 years at ADA, Kailynn has learned every genre of dance from talented and caring teachers.  When life happens and we need support or love, it's our ADA family that is always there for whatever we need.  She has a sincere love for dance, but it's the friendships and memories we make with our dance family that will be with us for a lifetime.

  • Morgan was a late bloomer in the dance world since she started dancing at the age of 10.She fell in love instantly! The growth she has made through her love of dance is beyond the actual dancing. She has gained so much through her years at Academy of Dance Arts. She has learned time management, how to take criticisms to improve, endurance, how to be graceful both in beauty of dance and in the competition world, and confidence. She has made life-long friendships at ADA.Morgan has been taught by fabulous teachers that also emanate the love of dance and are such positive role models! Thank you so much ADA...our second family!

  • I have two girls who attend Academy of Dance Arts. My oldest is in the pre-teen Hip Hop class and my youngest is in the age 5-7 Ballet, Tap & Jazz. This is my youngest child's second year at Academy of Dance Arts, and my oldest enjoyed watching the recital so much she wanted to join as well this year. We have had the most wonderful experience here. My girls have grown so much in their dance abilities as well as their self confidence. Everyone is so welcoming and they have made such close friendships here. We have had the most experience with Ms. Kristina as my youngest has had her two years, and we absolutely adore her. She is so patient and such an incredible dancer and teacher/mentor. We also love Ms. Emily as she is absolutely amazing. I was blown away at my daughters first recital to see that Ms. Emily knew every single routine that every class does. She not only knew every routine but she knows each and every child individually. After our first recital, I knew that we had found our dance home and I could not imagine my children going anywhere else. Thank you guys for such a wonderful experience. We adore you all!
