Unique Performance Opportunities

Pre-Professional “Academy” students have the benefits of multiple performance opportunities each year.

  • Holiday performances
  • Exclusives at end of year showcase performances

Our goal is to give the dedicated dancer more opportunity and exposure for real-life application in the art of dance. Serious, career focused Academy students have intern opportunities by invitation at the advanced level as well as teaching opportunities within the studio.

Love, love, love!  My daughter has danced at 3 studios over the last 10 years, and Dayley Dance Academy is now our home.  It’s a combination of top instructors for multiple dance styles, to the focus on proper technique… to the Professional dance company performances that have made all the difference for us.
