Where Making Students Happy Is Our Number One Priority!
Our Success Comes From Knowing That We Have Made A Difference In The Lives Of The Children We Teach
General InfoOur success comes from knowing that we have made a difference in the lives of the children we teach! American Dance Academy opened in 1993 under the direction of Darlene-Giordano Cummings. The facility offers state of the art equipment, ballet barres and a top of the line floating dance floor. The curriculum includes ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, hip-hop, modern, cheer/tumble and pre-school, adult and intensive dancer programs for beginner through pre-professional levels. The staff of American Dance Academy is made up of a wonderful group of caring people who have a genuine love for the art of dance and the children. Our teachers take the responsibility to insure that activities are safe and age/gender appropriate. Each teacher encourages a positive, supportive and mutually respectful working atmosphere while stimulating children's minds and physical skills. They encourage students to strive to meet their fullest potential and to value the art of dance. Our teachers participate in yearly continuing education opportunities and programs to provide the most up-to-date quality instruction. They are not only teachers, but positive role models, mentors and motivators. American Dance Academy also brings in multiple Master Teachers from Philadelphia, New York and California each year to expand the student's dance training along with offering field trips to New York City to study with multiple Master Teachers.

A pre-pointe and pointe class is available for those students who are physically ready and approved by our teachers. Hip Hop classes are available for ages 7 and up. Our competitive intensive dancer program is available for those dedicated students whom posses strong technique and excellent performance skills. Dance education encompasses far more than technique or the steps your children will learn. We believe at American Dance Academy that the discipline of dance training gives young people a better understanding of commitment by offering them the chance to learn, experience the spirit of teamwork, and understand what hard work can accomplish. Our goal is to educate the minds, bodies, and souls of our students, to teach them the skills needed for a successful life, whether or not they stay involved in dance.
