The Academy of International Dance Program provides children of the Academy of International Dance with a multicultural education and experience through the performing arts. This enriching program motivates students to become academic achievers, improves their social behavior skills, and increases their knowledge about health and nutrition. Children are given the opportunity to receive a unique educational experience for future success.
Our program is grassroots in nature, in that it serves families of all social and economic backgrounds. All our staff is bilingual, and parents donate their time to office, clerical, maintenance and programs. Our international dance teachers complement the dance component with new terms and phrases in foreign languages correlating to their dance course to further enhance their knowledge and understanding of the art form. The dedication of our board members, staff, volunteers and collaborators have made it possible for the academy to continue providing its valuable service to the community.

Students will be placed in a literacy program that can enhance their reading, spelling and comprehension skills.

The academy provides educational health and nutrition seminars for its community at no cost. Families learn the importance of living a healthy life style. Good health and nutrition helps children learn better and live happier.
Dance ExaminationS (bALLET & CAPOEIRA)
Every year our ballet students complete their dance curriculum and are placed through examination and certification under Cecchetti U.S.A. Once a student passes their exam, the institutes confers the students with a certificate attesting to the level achieved. Children are taught discipline and how to be focused which in turn gives them confidence academically and socially.
