Our Summer Session will run for 5 weeks. Our students come twice a week, so there are
a total of 10 classes. Classes will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please see our fall schedule for more information. We are accepting new students now!
Please notify the school, if you are unable to attend your lesson. Arrangements can be made to make up the lost
lesson in a class of similar level. Refunds are not issued for missed classes.
We have set up various times within the year to invite visitors of the students to come observe a class session(s). Visitor’s Day is a special occasion for guests, it is typical and customary that parents are not allowed to observe the lessons other than these days because of the disruption it can cause in the class. (See Academy of Dance Arts calendar for these dates)
Our facility is located in the delightful business corridor of Bradley Road in Brown Deer. It has recently been chosen as a revitalization corridor and many new developments have begun. The facility is over 5,000 square feet that houses four spacious studios, along with a dance boutique and waiting rooms with children’s play and TV to pass the time. There are 2-way mirrors, so visitors can watch at any time.
