Bringing a structured but fun dance program to students is our #1 goal.  

The Dance Academy has 2 locations, Fayetteville, TN and Lawrenceburg, TN.

Our Fayetteville studio has 3 studio rooms, 5 staff members, 2 intern teaching assistants and 8 student interns.


A premiere dance studio which offers a variety of dance in jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical, musical theatre, hip-hop and pom, Acro, tumbling and yoga. We offer fun and exciting camps in the summer but our dance program runs year round with a schedule change in the fall each year. We offer a “year end” performance in late summer as well as a performance team, mini travel company team, B level travel company team, and an A level travel company team. There’s a place for every budget and time wish! Here at The Dance Academy, our goal is to provide our dancers with the best dance education possible.  

NEW location now open for enrollment in Lawrenceburg, TN.
