Discover Elite Dance Academy...

Hello, I'm Devon, along with my husband George, and together,

we are the owners and directors of Elite Dance Academy.

It brings us great joy to welcome you warmly into our dance family!

Our journey began in 2012 when we opened the studio for our

daughter Marissa, driven by her profound love and passion for dance.

With her inspiration at heart, we envisioned a dance program designed to

inspire students of all abilities, nurturing self-confidence, coordination,

and individuality. Our goal was to create an environment that both

parents and students would eagerly embrace and participate in.

Our Philosophy


At Elite Dance Academy, we aspire to shape a global community where dance's enchantment is within everyone's reach. Our firsthand experience reveals dance's transformative power in fostering character, confidence, and bonds. This captivating and enriching art form serves as a remarkable conduit for cultivating body awareness, self-control, and collaborative spirit. With our commitment to exceptional instruction and mentorship, we aim to empower our students fully. While emphasizing etiquette and grace, we prioritize nurturing self-assurance and fostering a healthy body image.

At Elite Dance Academy, our mission is to cultivate a vibrant community where individuals of all ages and backgrounds can immerse themselves in the joy and artistry of dance. We are dedicated to providing a holistic experience that nurtures not only physical well-being but also creativity and self-expression.


At the heart of our philosophy is the belief that dance is not just about mastering steps, but about discovering oneself and building essential life skills. We strive to instill self-confidence, discipline, and a strong sense of individuality in each dancer who walks through our doors.



To conduct oneself with integrity through honesty, courtesy, respect, and consideration for your fellow dance members and faculty. This includes a willingness to be held accountable for the way you participate in all company activities. 


To be given the privilege of setting an example, serving the people you are leading, and being an inspiration to others in the Elite Dance Academy community. 


To respect the dance profession and uphold our values and standards of conduct that characterize the highest qualities of dance professionals. This included respecting your teachers, supporting, and encouraging each other, not gossip, but being able to voice an opinion to a company director about your concern and recognize yourself as a role model always. 


To adhere to the studio company's policies and procedures, to comply with the faculty schedule and requests, and to be a person that others can count on.
