Welcome To Colby Academy of Dance

A Premiere Dance Studio


Our History

When you decide to join us at Colby Academy of Dance, you will be able to take advantage of our professional staff at our fully-equipped studio. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced dancer looking to improve your technique, we guarantee you’ll find it here.  I pride myself in providing a great dance education while giving each student individualized attention to meet their maximum potential while developing self-esteem and confidence in a friendly, fun, family atmosphere.  I take great pride in teaching my students a craft that many have carried on to their professional lives.  Many of my students through the years have gone on to teach or open studios with the business background and dance education they received at CAD.  In addition, many of our students have gone on to perform at Miss America Pageants, cruise lines, print ads, video ads, Walt Disney World and more.  Here at CAD, whether recreational or competitive, students receive a top-notch dance education.

Our Dance Studio offers a large variety of dance classes for all skill levels. Our experienced instructors are passionate about helping each dancer achieve their highest potential, while also having as much fun as possible. Classes are offered in Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Acrobat, Lyrical, Modern/Contemporary, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre and Jazzy Hip Hop.  Classes are offered for ages 2 through adult, male and female.  If coming from another studio, as always, we will honor your achievement awards.
