15 Benefits of becoming an
Elite Dance Academy Dancer:

1. We Put Dancer Wellness and Safety First 

  • Accident & Incident Procedures and Reporting System to ensure that injuries and emergencies are handled quickly and effectively.

  • Our teachers are CPR-certified and Background-checked.

  • HEPA Filter Air Purifiers in every studio to create a healthier and more pleasant environment for your child, and decrease the spread of illness.

  • “Floating Floors” in every studio, which are superior to “sprung floors” because floating floors absorb the shock of landing jumps and acrobatic skills to help reduce the risk of injury to your child.

  • Daily cleaning of our facility so that our school sparkles and your child learns in a clean and healthy environment.

2. Our Exceptional Team of Dance Educators

At our studio, you'll find a team of ten highly skilled dance educators, each boasting years of prior experience and prestigious certifications in Progressive Ballet Training, The Building Blocks of Dance, CLI, Twinkle Stars Dance, and more. Our instructors are not only certified experts in their craft but are also deeply committed to understanding your dancer's unique aspirations and guiding them towards their goals.

Beyond their professional credentials, our teachers exude warmth and dedication, forming meaningful connections with each and every one of our dancers. With their nurturing personalities and unwavering dedication, our instructors ensure that every student feels supported and inspired on their dance journey.

3. Elevate Your Dance Experience with Our       Curriculum-Driven Studio

At our studio, we pride ourselves on being pioneers in the Central Valley, offering a meticulously crafted dance curriculum designed to accelerate the progress of our dancers. From the tender age of 18 months and beyond, we provide a diverse array of class opportunities tailored to nurture every dancer's passion and potential. Our comprehensive curriculum encompasses a wide spectrum of dance styles, including ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, lyrical, and acro. We understand the importance of convenience for our dancers and their families, which is why we endeavor to schedule classes in a way that allows students to seamlessly transition between multiple styles, maximizing their learning experience.


In addition to our regular classes, we also enrich our dance program with a variety of seasonal dance camps throughout the year. These camps offer unique opportunities for dancers to further explore their creativity, refine their skills, and connect with fellow dancers in a fun and supportive environment. Join us at our studio and experience the difference of a curriculum-driven approach to dance education.

13. Elevate Your Dance Journey

In addition to our recreational classes, we offer two levels of our competitive team for dancers and families ready to make a deeper commitment. Starting at age 4, our team season runs from July to June, fostering an unbreakable bond among dancers who push each other to excel daily. Held to high standards, team members experience accelerated growth through the competitive nature and requirements of the team. We strive to accommodate every dancer on our team, who compete 5-6 times a year and perform locally throughout the valley.
