WHAT WE DO
Elite Dance Academy is a comprehensive performing arts studio offering training in the traditional dance disciplines such as ballet, tap, and jazz along with voice and performing skills. Children can begin classes at age 2 1/2 and continue until graduation from high school.

In addition to regular classes, students can audition for the competition team which has won numerous awards both locally and nationally.

OUR BUSINESS HISTORY
Elite Dance Academy was founded by Jan Stefanowski in 1978. In 1996, after 18 years at the Second Street Pike location, the studio moved to it's current 3000 square foot location on Almshouse Road. Over 500 families currently have one or more children enrolled.

ABOUT OUR STAFF
Jan Stefanowski brings to her school over 40 years of dancing experience including 36 years as a teacher. She has studied in New York and Philadelphia with such famous teachers as Jay Dash, Charles Kelley and Frank Hatchet and is a member of the Philadelphia Dance Alliance and The Northampton Township Business and Professional Association.   12 other staff members are responsible for the day to day operations of the studio.

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE
The director and the professional staff share the philosophy that dance is to be enjoyed by all for its intrinsic benefits. The teachers love what they do and believe in a close family type atmosphere in their work with children. The staff has the ability to take a student from beginner to broadway caliber but also realizes that not all children have such aspirations. Students of all abilities are welcome and will be offered challenges that will keep them interested as well as improve their skills and confidence.

For the safety of the children and staff, a professional Stage Step flooring system is installed in both dance rooms. The floor "floats" on hundreds of high density foam cushions which absorb the impact of dancing and jumping. The floor reduces injury and allows the dancers to perform with minimal fatigue.

The desk staff is available during all class hours so parents and visitors can always talk to someone to get information or ask questions while teachers are busy with their classes.

The Elite website, www.elitedanceacademy.com is a regularly updated internet site that contains studio information for students and parents, much of which can be downloaded and printed. Photos of classes, teachers, and other studio events are also available for viewing.
