Our instructors are highly trained and offer the best training possible for your dancer.  Please check out our "Meet the Instructor Page" for bios!  

We pride ourselves in offering the best training in the area, in a fun environment.  Our tiny dancers learn a unique curriculum created by Encore Dance Academy. It allows dancers to acquire a love for dance at a young age.  In doing this it sets them up for a lifelong love, and appreciation, for the art.  They learn proper technique in a "magical" environment.  Lifelong friends are made in the process, and it is always a joy watching them grow together!  After our Prekinder, Kinder, and Elementary classes, we go into our leveled classes.  We offer levels 1-6.  This allows us to place dancers in classes where they are all on the same ability level as well as age group. We will never hold a dancer back due to their age.  Finally, our competitive program is the best in the tri-state area.  Our dancers are also Beyond the Stars National Champions, and most of our teams have undefeated seasons.  Our Encore Elite Competitive Program is very demanding, and requires a lot of discipline.  It is very strict and prepares dancers for careers in the dance field.  This program is not for everyone.  If you have questions about any of our programs, feel free to email us at encoredanceacademyde@gmail.com.  Classes are offered for ages 1 1/2 through adult.
