OUR PHILOSOPHY

The goal of THE INDUSTRY DANCE ACADEMY is to instill a lifelong love and appreciation for the art of dance performance. Whether it occurs at a convention/competition, within the community, or in a theatre, the opportunity and experience of performing on stage is like no other.  The values and life lessons we hope all Dance Company members will experience include teamwork, time management, prioritizing discipline, dedication, honesty, respect, patience, and artistry. What better way to set your child up for a lifetime of success?

At THE INDUSTRY DANCE ACADEMY, our purpose is to provide excellent dance training in Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Tap, and Ballroom, all within a loving, supportive and encouraging environment to be remembered and cherished throughout a lifetime. Our focus will be on developing healthy, artistic, and well rounded dancers.

THE INDUSTRY'S Reasons To Belong To A Dance Company

* Working towards a professional career in dance or a college bound focus.
* Committing, participating and belonging to a team.
* Gaining a sense of balance in life, and managing commitments between academics and dance.
* Participating in a physical activity that will promote an understanding and the value of a healthy body.
* Developing a sense of confidence for performing in public and on stage.
* Working with mentors who are focused on the student’s success inside and outside of the classroom.
* Enjoying friendships that may last a lifetime and a sense of belonging to an extended family: your teachers, fellow teammates, moms and dads.
*Discovering the results of hard work, determination and dedication.
*Developing a lifelong appreciation for the performing arts.

THE INDUSTRY'S Philosophy Regarding Competitions/Conventions

Our goal is to instill in our students passion rather than merely the desire to win awards. We want to emphasize performance not competition. The goal of the dancers should be to improve as a performer. Your goal as a parent should be to encourage and support your child. We would like to develop in each student a genuine respect for dance as an art form. We consider student’s participation in competition not merely part of their dance training, but also an important part of how we influence their growth as people. With the right focus, the experience gained in competition can be an excellent source of self-confidence. If the dancer feels good about his or her performance and understands that they become better each time they go on stage, they are truly growing through the competition experience. Through participation in competitions, we hope to instill in our students an appreciation for other dancers and schools. We hope to motivate both student and faculty by exposing them to the highest caliber of talent available. Only then can we produce the best dancers and teachers as possible. For us, competition is an education.

THE INDUSTRY'S Dancer Expectation

THE INDUSTRY'S DANCE ACADEMY believes members must have the utmost respect for all dancers at THE INDUSTRY DANCE ACADEMY as well as for dancers from other studios. THE INDUSTRY DANCE ACADEMY members are expected to be committed to each other and their Company and be supportive of each other at all times. Dancers, parents, and relatives of THE INDUSTRY DANCE ACADEMY should take pride in our school and be positive role models. Competition involves both winning and losing. Please be prepared to be humble, gracious, supportive, and courteous competitors. THE INDUSTRY’S Parent Commitment Parents or guardians of dancers must understand and agree that participation in THE INDUSTRY DANCE ACADEMY is a commitment from both the dancer and parents or guardians. Accordingly, for the opportunity to participate in THE INDUSTRY DANCE ACADEMY, parents or convention/competition information. Parents and guardians can and will only speak positively to and of each other, as well as to and of THE INDUSTRY DANCE ACADEMY's faculty. This includes any and all posts to social media outlets.

First Time Students only

Come on IN

I only wish we had found Maia and Rhonda a long time ago. This is our new home and we couldn’t be happier about it. I have wanted to find true role models and mentors for my daughter and have found that with both Rhonda and Maia. They have put together an incredible program and the studio is absolutely beautiful. If you are looking for an artistic approach to dance with age appropriate choreography, strong training, and a warm and loving environment, you will find that at IDA.
