Greetings from Young Dance Academy!

We are celebrating our 32nd year of providing quality dance education in Wisconsin!

Our state of the art facility is located in the heart of Oak Creek, just blocks from I-94 and minutes from General Mitchell International airport.  We are centrally located to accommodate families within the greater Milwaukee area and its surrounding suburbs.

Our professionally trained faculty instructs dancers of all ages and specializes in:

  • Ballet
    Hip Hop
    Pom Pon
    Lyrical Jazz
    Jazz Jumps & Turns
  • Musical Theater - New this year!
  • Ballroom - Back by popular demand!
    And Much More!

Young Dance Academy has 4 spacious and fully equipped dance studio rooms complete with raised wood flooring, essential for the prevention of injury.  We have plenty of parking, a spacious lobby and a helpful, friendly front desk staff as well as our excellent, highly qualified teachers in the classroom!

Our dance school season runs from September 2014 through June 2015.  We conclude with our annual recital in mid-June.  We do not have a second semester that starts in January.  We continue enrollment throughout the fall in any classes that are not full however, classes fill quickly by September so stop in or call soon!
