The St. Louis Academy of Dance (SLAD) was founded over three decades ago. SLAD offers dancers the most comprehensive, diversified faculty in the region. Our qualified and experienced instructors are professional performers and teachers, who excitedly present you with the most up-to-date choreography and music of this special art. Every moment, every exercise, every dance is taught to you with the intent to give you (and/or your child) pleasure and satisfaction. The SLAD staff gives toddlers, children, teens, and adults the love and attention that builds beautiful dancers. Our methods of teaching touch you with memories and self-esteem that last a lifetime - no matter when you begin.
"My three year old is taking her first year of dance classes at SLAD and I can't say enough good things about the entire company. Her teacher, the director, and the community of dancers and parents have all been kind, knowledgeable, and supportive. She had a great time performing at her first recital - preschoolers doing tap and ballet is the cutest thing ever! My family remarked how great the teachers were, how organized the show was, and how well everyone performed. She looks forward to dance class every week. I'm so happy I chose SLAD for her."
