DESERT DANCE ACADEMY
Desert Dance Academy is an award winning performing dance arts program and ballet school in the desert offering high quality dance training in a nurturing environment. Academy instructors are selected for their passion, knowledge, technical skills, and ability to encourage and inspire.  We are highly dedicated to the success of each student.  Many of our students have moved on to become dance professionals, or have been accepted to top-notch companies and performing arts schools in the nation.  Some of these students photos are featured in the content of this article.  Regardless the direction you choose to take, dance can make you incredibly strong, flexible, confident, coordinated and intelligent.  

We are passionate about dance, and the dancer.  We welcome new students, and our programs are open to the public.  In addition to regular classes, we offer student school credit programs, apprenticeship programs, and  scholarship programs. These programs are made available for our talented dancers.  Master classes, auditions and scholarships with the JOFFREY ballet school are also facilitated at Desert Dance Academy. 
 
Classes in all levels and styles are offered at Desert Dance Academy. From ballet to hip hop, pointe to tap, and Folklorico ballet to Latin dance and salsa. Classes are for children as young as 2 years up to the professional adult dancer.  Many of our students love to dance, attend class and perform.  We can not wait to teach you whether you just want to have fun, or to develop your strength, talent and skills as a dancer.  We are dedicated to your success.

Productions are presented twice a year on a beautiful community stage. The Nutcracker Suite is featured in the winter, and a Spring show in June. To date, we have performed over 45 productions in the community, and over 20 full-scale ballets at the Annenberg Theater of Palm Springs Art Museum.  We have contributed and performed at numerous community centers, open forums, public libraries, schools, and non-profit events.  Our productions bring delightful family entertainment on the big stage, and at smaller venues.

Desert Dance Academy is located in South Palm Springs easily accessible to all desert cities.  We have three different studios at one convenient location.  Located at the intersection of Hwy 111 & Gene Autry Trail at RIMROCK PLAZA  of Palm Springs.  We are next door to Vons, Eisenhower Health Center and Starbucks.  For more information,
