St. Louis Academy of Dance moved into our current location in 2004. In the fall of 2012 we began our studio expansion of a 3rd, and much larger, fully equipped dance studio to accomodate additional classes. The highly-anticipated expansion is now complete. A third state-of-the art studio was added with a NEW floor - "The ultimate multi-purpose studio and tour floor. Flexibility of a marley dance floor and virtually indestructible. Great for all styles of dance including tap", one of the existing studios nearly doubled in size and all of the wood floors have been refinished. The lobby, dressing room and retail sales spaces are bigger and better, too. Check out the list of new classes being offered as a result of the addition of much needed space!
Each of our current studios are large enough to accomodate numerous dancers and large routines. The flooring of each studio is fully sprung hard wood dance floor. The studios also have one full wall of floor to ceiling mirrors. Visitors in the waiting rooms can monitor each of the studios via closed-circut TV's to watch the dancers progress.
"SLAD is a breath of fresh air when it comes to dance studios. I appreciate that with even the youngest kids they actually instruct ballet and work on technique rather than just letting the preschoolers play in a leotard and tights. The highlight of our year is Showtime because it is amazing to see such young kids’ talent on stage. It is simply amazing what they are able to accomplish in a year and is a professional performance that far exceeds my expectations each year! I also appreciate that the costumes are always tasteful and respectful of their age."
