Dance Arts Academy celebrating 17 years of training beautiful dancers here in Traverse City! Our Children's Program has been designed by former professional dancers and current educators Susan Buck and Betsy Carr. Their combined sixty-plus years of teaching experience has enabled them to prepare a thoughtful, fun, challenging, and inspiring program for all of our students. We understand that your young dancer's first steps are so important for them to be the best they can be. Early exposure to caring, professional teachers with national experience and recognition will shape your dancer's quality education from the start. We offer a healthy, positive, and supportive atmosphere for our student's development of a strong work ethic, grace, poise, and physical and emotional well being. We are confident that your dancer's affiliation with our outstanding faculty will benefit all aspects of his or her life. We feel that progress for the serious and recreational dancer is best realized in a professional atmosphere where students are treated with dignity and respect. From toddlers to adults, one class each week, or many, our students are thriving on the training they receive at Dance Arts Academy.

A new home for Dance Arts Academy
We are so excited to share great news with you!! We have purchased the corner lot on Garfield, next to Carpet Galleria. Our state of the art, 10,000 + square foot facility is in the final stages of design, and we will be breaking ground soon. We are so grateful for your continued support & enthusiasm for our new home. Without you, we would not have been about to see this dream come true. Betsy & Sue
We will remain in our current location through our Spring Concert Performances. We are committed to continuing to provide quality, inspired, professional training and opportunities for our dancers and their families in Northern Michigan. We are so excited for our future!
