WHO WE ARE

Our History & Philosophy

We are proud to be celebrating 33 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. 

 

We are located in Lake Oswego, just a couple of miles from Portland Metro, West Linn, Tigard, & Tualatin areas.

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.

Guiding young dancers in the classic styles of tap, jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, lyrical & ballet, we encourage self-confidence & poise in a positive environment.
