Welcome toElite Dance Academy
While we were teaching preschool together, Andrea introduced Creative Dance into the classroom curriculum. The response was so great, that we decided to plan a summer dance camp for our 3 and 4 year olds. After a successful camp, we were overwhelmed with requests to continue and expand our program to other children in the community. Thus, Elite Dance Academy was created. In the summer of 2006 we converted a church storage closet into a dance studio where we offered 36 dancers a variety of classes. Within 3 months we grew out of our closet studio and moved to a 1600 sq. foot space with 2 studios. Our passion has always been to create a quality dance education in a professional, safe, and positive environment.
We believe by creating a healthy environment our students build confidence, discipline, and friendships that last a lifetime. Because of these ideals, we have grown to over 400 students, located to a larger facility, and expanded in the Fall of 2011 and once again in the Fall of 2013. We never imagined Elite would be what it is today. We’re blessed that we have been able to touch so many lives and our biggest reward is when dancers walk out of their class and can’t wait to come back. Thank you for trusting us with your children. Let’s Dance!
This division includes our Performance Company, Elite Dance Company, and consists of the most advanced of EDA’s students. Elite Dance Company represents the high artistic standards and technical proficiency that we expect from our Pre-Professional students. The company performs works by master choreographers and EDA faculty throughout the community as well as in their very own winter Dance Concert.
Acrobatic Arts is a professional Acrobatic curriculum. Acrobatic Dance or acro as it is commonly referred to by dancers and dance professionals, is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Often defined by unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, lines and extension with acrobatic movements in a dance context.
What Parents Are Saying
I have been very impressed with the nurturing way the teachers push all students to achieve their potential whether dance is natural for them or not.
