At the WNC Dance Academy

We provide high-quality dance instruction in a nurturing, positive, and creative environment.  With an  Elite Pre-Professional program, and a recreational dance program, each student will find just the right training for their dance goals.  Our young dancer classes are designed to inspire, engage and excite young minds and give them the building blocks to one day be a part of an elite program.  Our recreational dance classes are for the student who loves to dance, but not as intensely.  All dancers of any age are embraced at WNCDA, where our goal is to help you become the dancer you are meant to be. The WNC Performing Company is a performing and competing company geared towards very focused dancers wanting to concentrate on commercial dance.   

Director Tina Simms is a motivational, accomplished teacher and choreographer who places great value on putting together the right staff.

When looking for the kind of rigorous training required to become a professional, or land that university dance scholarship, you need a proven history of results. Our school is new, but our experienced teachers are not.  They have been instrumental in getting students placed in professional dance companies, commercial dance jobs and well respected university and high school dance departments.
