Our staff and instructors love what they do and believe in a close family atmosphere where we can educate and share our love for dance with all students. We provide life skills encouraging socialization, inclusion, discipline, confidence building, expression and more! Our diverse staff can take a student from beginner to professional, but also realizes that not all children have these aspirations. Students of all abilities are welcome to join our dance family and will be offered challenges to keep them interested and passionate about dance.
We proudly present a cutting edge facility with over 6000 square feet, that features three dance studios, equipped with cushioned Stage Step flooring to protect your child’s joints and muscles. The floor “floats” on hundreds of high density foam cushions which absorb the impact of dancing and jumping. This system provides a safe and comfortable surface for all students, reducing injury and allowing the dancers to perform with minimal fatigue. Our space also includes dedicated restrooms for each dance space, and a welcoming lobby, equipped with viewing windows/monitors and an exclusive dance wear boutique.
The director and the professional staff share the philosophy that dance is to be enjoyed by all for its intrinsic benefits. Our instructors love what they do and believe in a close family atmosphere where they can teach and share their love for dance with their students. Our diverse staff can take a student from beginner to Broadway–caliber, but also realizes that not all children have such aspirations.
Sharon was Elite Dance Academy’s first student and is the daughter of EDA founder, “Miss Jan”. She grew up in the dance studio studying ballet, tap, jazz, pointe and gymnastics. As a student, Sharon traveled to conventions, competitions and performances at a variety of venues throughout the tri-state area and attended classes in Philadelphia and New York. She moved on to college athletics while earning a BS in Marketing, followed by a Masters of Business Administration in Finance. She was employed as a corporate business system consultant prior to purchasing Elite in 2010. Sharon is very happy to be surrounded by the dance world where she grew up, especially close to adults and children (including two of her own) who share the love of dance. She is a fitness fanatic, an avid runner, and a 2nd degree Black Belt. She is passionate about having a dance studio where children of all ages and abilities can find happiness, learn, and grow surrounded by a healthy environment of love and encouragement.
