2019 Best Dance Studio


The Philadelphia Dance Academy, Society Hill

“PDA is a supportive and warm community for young dancers to explore their interest in dancing across a variety of dance genres. All students from a variety of dance skills are welcome to participate and encouraged to grow and develop as individuals as well as with their fellow classmates. All of the instructors are encouraging and provide rigorous instruction in a positive environment.”


  • 2019 Family Favorite – Merge Dance Studio

The Philadelphia Dance Academy, Society Hill

From their nominations:  “My daughter has danced at PDA for 5 years now (started at age 4). I can’t say enough about how wonderful this school truly is. The staff are supportive, nurturing and exemplify integrity and professionalism in dance, teaching and life. They foster an environment of care and support and have encouraged my somewhat shy daughter to express herself with confidence through dance. They have instilled in her a love of dance which will last forever. Lori and the entire PDA staff mean so much to my family and this is an absolutely amazing place for top notch dance education. We are grateful to have found PDA and to be a part of such a special place.”
