Message from the Director

It’s our 40th Anniversary Year! I am so excited! I have been very fortunate to teach thousands of beautiful students throughout this incredible journey. They have grown up to be successful adults in every imaginable field. Many have found their way into the professional dance world and made their mark in the concert and commercial dance fields. They have danced all over the world! I am so proud and humbled to have had the privilege to touch so many lives and plant the seeds of creativity and love of performing in their hearts! I have had the honor to work with an incredible faculty and staff here at Dance World Academy who all believe in the pursuit of excellence in the arts! When you give your child dance, you are giving them so many wonderful things! You are giving them the chance to learn art! You are giving them a chance to increase their self confidence through performance. Children and Teens get healthy physical exercise while learning to express their emotions in a healthy and positive way! Dance perks up the brain cells and can make students smarter in school! This is a proven fact! Beautiful costumes and a Broadway quality elaborate recital create memories of a lifetime! Your child and teen will have so much fun while increasing memorization and teamwork skills! Dance is exercise for the “brain” as well as for the body! We are ready and excited to begin the new season and we look forward to seeing you! We appreciate your faith and trust in us!

Our teachers are proud to motivate and inspire, encouraging students to believe in themselves and adopt an “I can do it” attitude while teaching safely and correctly! Whether students plan a professional career or dance for a hobby, our training is a “training for life” which supports the idea that our students should always put their best foot forward in every endeavor. This type of instruction is unique to Dance World Academy … every student is important to us and receive the benefit of the teachers’ time, energy and education in order to make them a better dancer. In some schools, only the top students receive such dedicated instruction but at Dance World Academy, we show each and every student that they are extremely important to us. We love our students and want them to keep coming back year after year.

If they don’t become dancers, they will become the dance audiences of the future! They will also learn to express themselves in a healthy, positive way, through the beauty of dance and music. This is thanks to you, their parents who have given them the wonderful opportunity and cultural enrichment of studying dance. 

We hope that you and the dancer in your life will join us for our 40th Year Celebration! It’s going to be a great one!


Dancingly Yours,

Donna Farinella, Director
