Auburn Dance Academy

Auburn Dance Academy feels that students should have a variety of experiences to grow into better dancers and most importantly to be inspired in their art form. We currently offer beginning to advanced classes for dancers as young as 3 years old through teen and adult age groups.

Why Choose ADA?

We Love ADA Because...

“My daughter is having the time of her life at Auburn Dance Academy!  Not only is she quickly improving in her dance skills, she's gaining confidence in herself, taking responsibility for her personal decisions, and finding some truly wonderful friends.  I love that she is spending so much quality time with sincerely good people, and I love how much happier she's become since joining the ADA family!”

“ADA is the best of the best! They welcomed us like family since day 1, and have given my daughter and all the other students a very comfortable environment to learn in so they can become the best dancers they can be. We will be signing our youngest up as soon as she’s old enough! And will continue to recommend it to everyone.”

Auburn Dance Academy has been a wonderful experience for my daughter. Not only have her dancing skills improved dramatically but she now has an amazing friend and family base at the studio!! With the wide array of classes and teachers, I am sure that anyone would feel as comfortable and at home at Auburn Dance Academy.   Anything you could possibly want in a dance, musical theater, vocals and conditioning studio they have it!!

I want to thank ADA for 7 years of not only bringing out the best dancer in our daughter, but helping to shape her character and build her confidence. This studio has become a second family to us filled with love, laughter and a lot of hard work. High expectations have been met with many first place awards and exhilarating shows. These kids bring 110% every time they step on the stage!

"We are so happy to be part of the Auburn Dance Academy family.  The first day we walked in, we were welcomed with open arms by everyone and felt the incredible support and love of an awesome dance family.  The owners, instructors and staff are amazing and the exponential growth I have seen in my daughter over the last year further confirmed that the choice to be at Auburn Dance Academy was absolutely the right one.  Not only has her technique and confidence improved dramatically but the lifelong friendships she has gained makes me, as a mom, very happy.  Her passion for dance has grown even more and we are so excited to continue this journey at Auburn Dance Academy for many more years!"
