The Philadelphia Dance Academy: Professional Training in a Positive Environment
Philadelphia Dance Academy is the 2022 Philly Family LOVE Awards Winner for Best Dance Studio!
The Philadelphia Dance Academy (PDA) strikes a balance of professionalism and kindness to inspire dancers of all ages. The curriculum prioritizes refined technique, dancer wellness, and artistic development. Little ones find joy and expression in Early Childhood classes and serious young dancers prepare for the technical demands of a professional career in the Pre-Professional program.
What to look for in a dance program:
- Qualified Faculty – A faculty with a strong education and representing a variety of career paths in professional dance brings a well-rounded, balanced perspective to training.
- Educational Focus – Programs should have a clear curriculum and students should progress through a structured program based on developmental readiness.
- Versatility – Professional dance companies expect dancers to adapt to a variety of styles and choreographers. Programs offering exposure to several genres better prepare dancers for a performing career.
- Performance Opportunities – Most schools offer annual spring shows for all students. If your child loves to perform or intends to pursue dance professionally, you should investigate whether there are additional performance opportunities throughout the year.
- Organization/Communication – Clear policies and responsive communication are important. Review policies and websites carefully to ensure expectations are clear.
