About Dance Arts South

Welcome to Dance Arts South, the Eastern Shore’s most innovative and dynamic dance studio! We are thrilled that you are considering becoming a part of Dance Arts South and applauding you for selecting what we consider a life enhancing experience for your child.

Dance is a wonderful artistic outlet that not only utilizes creativity and talent but also teaches discipline. All our teachers feel strongly about the role of dance in building character and self-esteem. We guarantee a positive and productive learning environment. We encourage parents and students to talk to teachers, ask questions and discuss new and shared experiences.

Dance Arts South children’s classes are both interactive and engaging. For students pursuing a career in ballet, the Ballet Arts Academy offers an excellent pre-professional ballet program to prepare students for the most prestigious companies and schools in the nation. Dance Arts South is committed to excellence in dance in a family-friendly environment.

Our primary focus is to provide our students with the finest dance instruction possible. Our core emphasis is on ballet because ballet instills proper technique for all other forms of dance.  We also offer classes in Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical and specialty classes such as Cirque, Hip Hop, Musical Theater and Voice.   There is simply no other faculty on the Gulf Coast which compares to ours at Dance Arts South.

We celebrate both the dance and the dancer in a fun uplifting environment.
