Our Team

At the Academy of Dance, we firmly believe that a Dance Studio's reputation and success is closely related to the quality of its teachers.  We carefully select those teachers who we believe reflect our own beliefs of providing a fulfilling and well-rounded dance education in a family-friendly setting.
We are always looking to supplement our team with high-quality teachers.  If you believe you have what it takes to join us, please email amanda@theacademyofdance.org
