Youth & Adult Dance Programs

Five Reasons to Choose Hamden Dance Academy

  • 1. Smaller Dance Class Sizes.
  • Our smaller class sizes allow students to get more individual instruction from teachers. As a result, students progress at a faster level than in a large-class environment. Our smaller class sizes also ensure that the teacher can catch any problems before they turn into bad habits or improper techniques

  • 2. Variety of Dances & Styles.
  • Highly qualified teachers with varied training and teaching methods are available to teach a broad range of dance formats.

  • 3. Our Dance Studio Advantage: The "Floating" Professional Dance Floor.
  • Our "Floating" Dance Floor rests on a system of high density foam to absorb the shock and impact of regular dance movement. This benefits students by reducing fatigue and preventing injury that can result from dancing on hard surfaces.

    The top layer of our flooring surface is a professional vinyl composite "Marley" floor similar to the surfaces used by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Royal Academy of Dancing in London and shows such as Riverdance. This Marley floor surface has a certain amount of controlled slip to allow for sliding in dance movement, but it is not slippery like common tiles found in most other dance studios.


  • 4. Dance for Ages 3-5
  • From the age of 3, children are given a fun introduction to the basics of dance. The program provides a solid foundation for future success in Ballet, Jazz, Tap and other styles.

  • 5. Recitals & Competitions
  • Students are given performance experience in our year-end recital. Students also have the option to participate in festivals and competitions.
