WHO WE ARE

Our History & Philosophy

We are proud to be celebrating 31 years of quality dance instruction in Lake Oswego!

We are a dance academy that supports a dancer's growth from early stages of learning through to the award-winning performing company and dance team level of excellence. 

Our instructors hail from a variety of backgrounds and are matched with classes where their talent and skills will be best expressed. 

We encourage new dancers to commit to (at least) a season, so they can feel a sense of accomplishment by performing at our annual recital.

We also offer open and drop in classes for fitness and fun! Please call for more details.
