Our Mission
The study of dance can be considered a highly motivated form of self-direction. Each student takes a class for personal reasons. The youngest students often come to "be with friends". Sometimes it stems from a parent's love and desire to engender grace and good posture. Though few initially think of a dance class as a long term commitment, occasionally it happens. Young dancers who are incorrectly taught or pushed too fast, will not develop an appreciation for the art. Learning to dance requires personal dedication and support from parents and friends. Dance demands hard work and perseverance. Those who persist discover that good technique is essential to becoming an accomplished dancer.

At Center Stage Dance Academy  proper dance technique is stressed at all levels.
It is our goal at Center Stage Dance Academy to provide students a loving, fun, caring, family atmosphere while at the same time establishing very high standards when it comes to their dance training. Excellence of instruction is one of our top priorities.

Center Stage Dance Academy is Dance Masters of America certified in Ballet, Tap Jazz and Acrobatics.  Dance Masters of America, Inc. is an International Non-Profit Educational Organization of dance educators, who have been certified by test to teach; have had a professional dance career; have a degreed certification from an approved institution of higher education; or have successfully passed an exam in an approved professional dance organization.
