Premier Chicago Area Arts Education
Located in Oak Park, a near West suburb, The Academy offers beginner to advanced training in ballet, jazz, and historical modern dance, as well as private music instruction and an early childhood program with an arts-based curriculum.
At The Academy, we want students of all abilities to feel at home and to be able to find inspiration and self-expression. Since movement and music are universal languages, people of all backgrounds, cultures, and abilities are welcomed and valued. Our faculty is justifiably proud of the successes of the talented and persevering few, but also rejoices in the progress made by each and every student. It is our purpose to make everyone’s time here meaningful and beneficial.
"We believe that all children are gifted; it is our mission to find and nurture those gifts to help each child reach their full potential."

"This place is what first inspired the love of dance in me, nurtured me, gave me so many amazing opportunities and lifelong friends, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without it’s teachers and community."
