About Us

The Dance Academy is more than just a dance studio, it is a home away from home where children and their parents can feel welcomed. We embrace the community and the family values that come with running a small and growing business. We welcome you to join our family! The Dance Academy has been in the Portage Park neighborhood for over 50 years. We offer many styles of dance including Combination, Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, and Hip-Hop. We have a variety of performance groups that perform around the Chicago-land area, including competitions. The Dance Academy is a safe space for dancers to learn and grow with their passion for dance.We believe that every dancer can be a STAR!
