H & H Dance Academy
Your neighborhood dance studio.

Welcome to H&H Dance Academy where we pride ourselves in creating a family enriched environment for every student to enjoy and grow at their own individual level.

Our certified staff is professionally trained with many years of teaching experience and are passionate about what they do. Our instructors who work with our younger dancers all obtained Early Childhood Education degrees. This sets our studio above the rest with teachers who are not only trained in the dance world, but are trained as teachers too. This allows our instructors to understand and enforce classroom management skills; to be able to accept different learning styles and abilities, and be able to engage all children in a positive classroom to strive for personal bests. All classrooms are age appropriate and focus on teaching a love of the arts though a disciplined stress free environment where children are encouraged to explore the wonderful world of dance.

This is our recital graphic. The recital t-shirt will have this logo on them and will be gray. An order form will be available for those shortly.

Below is the itemized listing for each show order. We put on 3 recitals, Saturday the 17th at 1:30, 6:30 and Sunday 18th at 1:00.  There will be an incredible amount of recital information coming in next month's newsletter.

Important: HHDA is a peanut and nut free studio! We have several students with severe peanut allergies. Thank you for your cooperation with this issue.

Parking Lot: Immediate attention required.... We know the parking lot is crowded during the week, and it can be hard to find a parking spot. There have been several complaints from other business owners in the mill. There is no parking allowed in the entrance on either side. We do have to leave room for trucks to enter the parking lot throughout the evening. The triangle in the center of the parking lot needs attention as well. Please only park across from our building in front of the triangle. Many customers are parking next to the triangle blocking the entrance into the mill. We need to leave all access roads into the mill open at all times. The side parking lot is deep and can accommodate many more parking spaces, if customers pull all the way up. Block in your classmates who leave at the same time as you. Thank you. We appreciate your help with this!

Make up Classes are offered through April. If your child should miss a class for any reason, please check the website for an equal class level. Let the teacher know before entering the class that you are there for a make-up class.

Tuition payments are due by the 15th of every month. A $15.00 late fee will be applied to all accounts that are not up to date.

Any questions, please ask!  We are always happy to help. :)


We are excited to introduce a new program that will be near and dear to our hearts. It is our way of honoring and remembering our beloved student Violet Ahearn. <3

Starting in the fall we will proudly be expanding our schedule and introducing a dance program for special needs children. Miss Sarah ,who is a licensed Occupational Therapist will be the leader of this pogram. Sarah will be attending a seminar this summer called Rhythm Works Integration where she will become certified and trained with the teaching tools geared toward children ages three and up who have autism, down syndrome, sensory integration disorders, and other developmental challenges. We are excited to bring the love of dance to all children.

Rhythm Works Integrative Dance class is on Fridays at 4:45pm!
