This section is sponsored by The Dance Academy (TDA)

The Dance Academy (TDA) offers a variety of dance classes to choose from for your dancer, whether you are looking for a recreational class of physical activity for your child this fall or looking for a dance program for your more advanced dancer. We believe in teaching the proper dance technique and building a solid dance foundation in all our classes whether it is in our recitational or our intensive program.

At TDA, our goal is to instill the love of dance in all who pass through our studio doors. We believe that each dancer is unique, and we aim to ensure students reach their maximum potential. We offer several dance classes in ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary, theater dance and tumbling.

Our dance classes and programs have helped children develop a sense of hard work, discipline, and creativity. They acquire the traits not only of proficient dancers, but well-rounded individuals both on and off the stage, developing skills such as self-discipline, memory and recall skills, increased focus, and social skills.

For 37 years, TDA has helped develop strong dance professionals. Many of our alumni have gone on to perform as professional cheerleaders for the Philadelphia Eagles, Wing, Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals, and the Atlanta Hawks; as Rockettes at Radio City; and on professional stages in Disney World, Las Vegas, Hawaii and cruise ships.

Come dance with us this season. To register or learn more about our dance classes and our dance program, visit www.thedanceacademybuckscounty.com or call 215-860-9530.
