Welcome to Kristy's Dance Academy

At Kristy's Dance Academy we strive to stay on the cutting edge of the current dance trends, but still give our students a strong hold on tradition with strong technique and knowledge of terminology. Our goal is to INSPIRE each child to GROW and ACHIEVE so that whatever path they choose, they can SUCCEED.

We are currently the home studio of America's Junior Miss Dance 2023 and America's Junior Dancer of the Year 2022- Zoe Davis, Teen Miss Dance USA 2022 - Aubree Dobson, America's Junior Mr. Dance 2022 - Eddie Ledbetter, Mini Miss Dance USA 2022 - Addison Dodge.

What makes Kristy's Dance Academy different?

  • We are the only studio in the area that is a Nationally Certified Member of Dance Masters of America
  • We offer classes on a “Working Parent” Friendly Schedule
  • We have multiple short recitals rather then long marathons and perform in local facilities
  • Our Instructors care about each individual child creating an environment where every child has a “chance to dance”
  • At Kristy's Dance Academy we are a FAMILY...we support and encourage each other to Grow, Learn, and Achieve Success!!!
