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.

H & H Message Board

Thank you for a wonderful start to our dance season! Dancers are settling nicely into their classes. We are still making a few placement adjustments for the best benefit of each individual child. If you should have any concerns, please let the directors know. We are all looking forward to a great year of dance!

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.

The studio will be closed on Monday, October 31st for Halloween. We hope everyone has a fun filled night of trick or treating.

We are inviting dancers to wear their Halloween costumes old or new during the week of Monday, October 24h-Saturday, October 29th. Please make sure dancers can move freely in their costumes. Please no facemasks or accessories as they can be left behind.

Dancers' Night Out and Teen's Night Out Friday, October 21st. LEARN MORE.
Calling dancers age 5 and up for a fun night out.


Facebook Contest:
During Halloween Costume week, take a photo of your dancer in their costume and upload it on our Facebook page. Make sure to tag H&H Dance Academy and use hashtag #HHDAHalloween2016. The person with the most Facebook likes will receive a free t-shirt from our fall apparel.


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!

The waiting room TV for observing will be turned on for the week of October 17th-October 22nd.

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.
