First, I'm not sure why the Shoreline drive address is listed. The Art of Dance Academy is located at 5640 Parliament Drive in Virginia Beach. The academy itself is intimate, with two very lovely hardwood floor studios and a viewing window allowing parents to watch their angels dance. Class sizes are small, averaging 6 or so students per class. BY FAR the smallest class sizes I've seen in the area! Because of the class sizes, faculty interaction is very one-on-one and personalized. The instructors tenderly teach by using the principles of focus, discipline, physical fitness, critical thinking, teamwork and, most importantly, respect. I am amazed by the knowledge my little ballerina had acquired in her year and a half at the academy. Not only has she learned basic ballet/tap knowledge, french terminology, but valuable social skills that have put her leagues above other children her age. I would, and do, recommend The Art of Dance Academy to all my friends.

This dance academy is a great program for your little mover and shaker. Their tiny tots program is fantastic! Unbelievable what Ms. Monique can get those 18 months to do!
