Meet our team.

Our staff consists of professionally trained, educated and credentialed performers with many years of dance experience. They have trained with some of the best in the industry and have professional credits to their name. In addition, many of our staff members are certified through Dance Educators of America, a prestigious organization dedicated to training teachers of all genres of dance. Many classes include both an instructor and an assistant to give each student the training needed to learn and grow. All of our Teacher Assistants/College Interns undergo a screening process and are being trained closely by the PDC team. We trust that you will be thoroughly impressed with our attention to detail while providing the correct training for your young dancer.
