Wishing you good health, good times, good cheer
and a memorable new year as we leap forward to better times together!
Happy New Year!

Whether you are a past, current or future ADA dance family, I want to thank you for your encouragement, support, and loyalty this past year! It was definitely the most challenging of 28 years and it was filled with a multitude of emotions! Thank you to everyone who continues to help ADA survive and get through these formidable times!

For those current dance families, I want to say an extra special thank you! There is magic happening at the studio in our dancers this year. There are beautiful smiles in the eyes and laughter through masks. There is determination, desire, and drive like no other year! You are the reason my staff and I love to teach and the ones who push us through! THANK YOU!!

This year especially, we appreciate the wonderful referrals from past and current ADA families and hope you will continue to do so!  It is because of you that we are celebrating our 28th year in business and have so many new friends who have joined us during this pandemic. Please know that ADA will continue to inspire passion and self confidence in our students as we share with them the joy of dance and self expression so they may lead inspired and healthy lives. We are thrilled and thankful that we are still able to do that!

If you or your friends have any questions about our program please do not hesitate to email or call. As we leap into 2021, we wish you all the best for a healthy, happy, and productive year ahead!

Our WEE Dance is a fun and creative class for Mommy (or Daddy/caregiver) and a tot. It is designed to help aid in the wonderful development of skills appropriate for a 2-3 year old. For this reason our class uses a parent or caregiver to help us orient the child into a classroom setting encouraging the development of fine and gross motor skills. These skills are developed through the use of music, dance, and constant support of those who love them. Along with assisting in the development of motor skills in the children we incorporate sharing, taking turns, and following directions. These aspects all lead to the development of socialization and additional necessary skills of listening and following directions to give them a great start before or while they begin preschool.

Snow Days

The studio will not necessarily close for snow/bad weather days regardless if area schools are closed. 

Closings will be sent out via email within one hour of the scheduled class and posted on our Facebook & Instagram accounts. Often we may open for the day and then decide to close if the weather becomes worse.

Since we are unable to offer drop in make ups lessons in other classes this year due to COVID size restrictions we will offer a Zoom, sign ups, or class makeup day.

Friendly Reminders

PLEASE DO NOT WEAR SHOES that have been worn outside into our dance rooms. Sneakers for dancers should not be worn outside especially since the salt from snow days can be brought onto our floors and make them very slippery (and dirty) for other dancers. Please pack a bag and change your shoes before you enter the dance room.

Only form fitted ballet sweaters will be permitted to be worn in class so that we can continue offer the highest standards of education based on proper technique. This cannot be done when dancers wear baggie clothes. Black ballet sweater tights are now permitted over the pink tights in all Level classes.
