INSPIRE Dance Academy

Dance Academy is an audition-based program for students ages 5-17, who want to dance more than one hour per week, experience more performance opportunities, and make more rapid progress, without having the full-time commitment of a Dance Company. There are 5 teams which are based on age and technical skill. Each team will have their own individual training schedule to learn choreography that they
will perform throughout the year.

These teams provide quality training to help prepare dancers for their dance future. All Dance Academy teams will compete with the exception of Starlets (our youngest team)*. While these competitions are valuable, our focus is on dance education and on fully experiencing the art of dance in a deeper way than could happen if we were always in a competition mindset.

All Academy students and their parents will be expected to have good attendance, good attitudes, and be able to focus and work hard as we become better dancers and better people!
