SDA is a ballet based studio and every dancer studies this most challenging dance style, most working towards dancing 'en pointe'. We believe in ballet very passionately! From the beautiful music to the magical costumes, ballet shapes amazing young ladies into powerful women. Start your dancers journey towards a bright future with the lessons learned while dancing at SDA!
