The teaching staff at SDA Studios is committed to finding and nurturing the beautiful dancer in every student, by providing a comprehensive dance learning experience based upon a solid foundation of technique training and quality performing opportunities. We work hard to provide a safe, wholesome, positive and challenging atmosphere of friendship, guidance and encouragement that enables our students to achieve their highest dance potential, and become the best dancer they can be!
We BELIEVE in ballet and have done so for 18 years! Our carefully designed ORIGINAL and UNIQUE curriculum begins at ages 3 years old and progresses through advanced training for high school students.
While all SDA dancers take (and love!) ballet, we LOVE our contemporary, jazz, tap and ACRO classes and almost all SDA dancers study several styles throughout their 'dance career' with us!
We believe dance is an ART; our syllabus is uniquely tailored each and every year to meet the needs of our currently enrolled students instead of following a prepackaged franchise model designed for non-trained instructors.
Your first trial class is always FREE and we can also help OUTFIT our tiniest dancers for their first classes!
SDA dancers always CHOOSE their own dance path-some study once a week and others 6 days a week, but it's always their choice and every student is treated EQUALLY in the classroom!
Our solid FOUNDATION of technique training; other studio owners have sent their own dancers to us for ballet classes!
Our dancers have many different PERFORMING opportunities to choose from; check out our ‘Performing’ page and see all we offer, including the largest STUDENT ONLY production of The Nutcracker for 18 years! #20 was incredible!
We are COMMITTED to age appropriate costumes and musical selections. Many of our dancers get to CHOOSE their own costume color/style for our Spring Concert!
Our entire staff is highly trained and always FRIENDLY! We're HAPPY to help you with any questions you may have!

We uphold a friendly, non-competitive atmosphere, encouraging students to help each other learn together, becoming friends. We're here to spread our knowledge and love of all dance forms and provide a place for your children to feel beautiful and protected, so they can express the great joy that dancing inspires in them! Every little dancer everywhere should take dance lessons in a big, bright and cheerful dance room with huge mirrors to see how beautiful they are when dancing from their heart!
Our training is centered around the study of classical ballet with jazz-hip hop, tap, modern, lyrical, contemporary and pointe also offered for different age groups. Whether our dancers hope to pursue a professional career someday or just want to dance for fun, we treat them all equally in the classroom.
Our dancers learn from a carefully designed and well planned curriculum which encompasses all areas of learning. We address the auditory, visual and physical learner through classroom exercises designed to improve both gross and fine motor skills. Since every child develops at their own rate, we try to maximize their naturally occurring development through structured exercises and imaginative free dancing or improvisation, which enhances creativity and encourages self-expression.
For our younger dancers, a variety of hand held props, floor mats with different colors and shapes, coloring pages and reward stickers are utilized along with correct ballet, jazz, hip-hop and tap movement terminology. Classroom skills necessary for school such as listening, following directions, taking turns and sharing, and being polite to everyone are also a part of our classes. Dancers also learn about body parts and shapes, weight and energy, rhythm, balance, directions through space and different sizes of movement. So much is packed into each and every class!
