Officially Opening August 13th 2016, the Angela Bates Dance Academy is thrilled to offer quality dance training for children, teens and adults. Whether dancing for recreational or professional purposes, dancers will be trained not only in dance, but in life as well. Dance lessons are life lessons! All classes will be conducted in a positive environment while passing on the passion for the art of dance. Our staff will serve as excellent role models with inspiration to be not only the best dancer, but the best person one can be. There will be many performance opportunities for our students including a Holiday Show, End of the Year Recitals, Parades, Community Events, Festivals, Dance Conventions and Competitions, etc. ABDA offers a wide variety of classes including Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Street Jazz and more. There is something for everyone, regardless of age, interest or ability.
