We have very passionate, caring, professional teachers and dancers on staff. Some of our teachers are artists in residence. This means they have current performing careers with professional companies. Some of our staff have had careers previously and enjoy sharing their knowledge with your child. Please remember, the first few weeks of dance can be somewhat chaotic as new students will be trying out various classes to be placed. Please be patient for the first few weeks. Our school is set up to accommodate both recreational dancers and, in a separate program, dancers who are on the path to a professional career. We are committed to an enjoyable and high quality education for both.
We are so excited to have you join us on our inaugural year. The list of dancers we have trained the continue on to professional careers is lengthy and a great testament to what can be accomplished through our specific method of training.
We invite you to tell your friends about us! We are looking forward to developing a strong dance family at Summit Dance Academy.
