KAD inspires a life-long love of dance in each student and we believe that every student can enjoy the spirit and soul of dance, regardless of body size or image. A whole child approach permeates the dance studio which has created a family atmosphere full of joy and creativity.
Kristi’s Academy of Dance is a place for children to grow and learn in dance, and along the way they will feel part of something very unique and special.
We offer classes in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, lyrical, pointe, creative movement, tumbling, ninja, gymnastics, and cheer. Our programs are designed to promote self-esteem, discipline, strength, body and movement awareness, coordination, and a lifelong appreciation for the arts, physical activity and creativity.
The poise, self-confidence, and sense of achievement that are gained as a dancer or tumbler progresses are invaluable contributions to an individual's overall development, promoting a well-disciplined body and mind.
KAD! Kristi's Academy of Dance
We believe that creativity is very important and fosters a sense of self in several ways, so we focus on building a creative environment in all our activities. Whether you are involved in our performances, camps, classes, or master classes, there is a focus on creative and critical thinking. Our students are encouraged to apply a personal style to their technique, work on characterizations for performing, learn improvisational skills in master classes and weekly classes, and most importantly, all our students learn how to appreciate and nurture each others’ creative efforts, so there is a sense of safety and community in creation.
