Our Young Dancer Program is the perfect way to begin your child's dance education. Students will learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment where they are capable of turning their dancing dreams into reality. Our young dancer classes were created with our youngest dancers in mind and are designed for boys and girls alike. With 20 years of experience, the Dance Academy of Loudoun is the place to start your dancer off on the right foot.
Then, you move on to our more advanced and pre-professional program that incorporate a great program for more advanced dancers and teen beginners as well. We have superb ballet companies, hip-hop companies and jazz companies, Performance Teams that perform in area shows, and top award winning Competition Groups. We have won many YAGP regionals (dancers and ensembles making it to the prestigious finals_ and many NYCDA regional and national top scoring groups and outstanding dancers. We have a place for you here at DAL.
Students in our young dancer program have the opportunity to perform throughout the season. The second trimester ends with an informal show on a small stage where students can acquaint themselves with a larger audience. The last trimester ends with our full studio recital. With all the adorable costumes, this is a show you do not want to miss!
For our bigger dancers we have a annual Nutcracker and Spring Ballet as well as Performance and Competition Teams. All classes will perform in the annual recital in June!
