Our Mission

PCPA is a creative and performing arts program that requires dancers to be both artists and athletes. Our ultimate goal is to instill dance intensity and drive inspired by much more than trophies and sequins. We believe in building strong fundamentals, technique, and discipline through dance training and performance experience. You can count on building a respect and love for dance whether you are training for personal or professional goals.

Weekly Dance Classes

Ages 5 – Teens

Whether you are looking to take one class per week or 10 classes per week, we offer a vareity of styles to choose from. Ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, lyrical, musical theatre, and capoeira classes are available. We offer various age groups but placement is weighed more heavily on level than age.

Performance Teams

Invitation Only – Ages vary

For those dancers with the focus and desire to take their training to the next level we offer performance teams. While we are not a competition studio, our performance teams do compete twice in the Spring, attend local dance conventions, perform in all our June recitals, and may perform in commuity events.

My girls love each and every one of their teachers. This is their home away from home as between the two of them, they take 16+ hours of dance classes per week.
