Safford Dance Academy
New to Dance?
From your child's first class to their graduation performance, Safford Dance Academy (SDA) has a class for everyone. We specialize in classes for beginners of all ages and offer training through pre-professional levels. Our classes are taught by skilled teachers in positive classrooms. Our dance floors feature professional Marley surfaces for your dancer’s safety. With SDA, you can count on age appropriate music, costume choices and choreography. We teach and model modesty, teamwork and service. We delight in your child's progress and performances!
But . . . SDA is more than just great dancing! Our dancers go beyond technique and poise to develop important life skills—our dancers develop responsibility, respect and self confidence.
Additionally, SDA offers a large selection of classes, including specialty classes for pre-schoolers, older beginners, teens and "boys only." With over 60 classes offered per week, you are sure to find a class to fit your child's interests and your busy schedule. You'll appreciate that our facility is designed to be family friendly. Our students perform in two recitals each year and can be seen in parades, festivals and events around the community.
Typically, our dance year runs from August through May, with breaks in December and March.
Our dancers are featured in recitals twice a year, in the months of December and May. Costumes for the December recital are provided by the studio and students purchase their costume for the May recital.
Tuition is charged monthly and can be paid by cash, check, credit card or automatic withdrawal from your account.
Appropriate dancewear and shoes are necessary for the success of your student. Each type of class requires different shoes and dancewear, and individual class requirements can be seen under our "Classes" section.
Successful dance students require a three part team —
1. A knowledgeable and inspirational teacher
2. An eager student
3. A well informed parent
We will provide well qualified teachers who educate with love, and we will do our best to keep you informed through newsletters and emails. Please feel free to contact us anytime with questions or concerns.
Dancing is just discovery, discovery, discovery.
