Making dreams come true...since 1980! 


The following is a year end letter received from a very young dancer (No edits for spelling or grammar).
This is one of the best gifts a dance teacher can receive...

Dear Miss Vicki, Thank you for another wonderful year. I am so proud to call Perrysburg Academy my home, and all the people at your studio my family. This year has been one of the most best of the years to come. Every year during or after the recital I cry because it means one less years till I have to leave. I might not have any real friends at school but at least I have all you guys to rellay on. After all I can never think of a life without being at this studio! I look forward to the many years to come!  Sincerely, with smiles, Sophia

NEW FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2014-2015

To avoid the possiblity of a late payment and therefore having a student sit out of class, each dancer is required to have an active Master Card, Visa, or Discover number on file. This card will be used only if: 1) a dancer's account is 7 days past due, or, 2) the family has specifically requested a fee be paid using the card on file. Automatic Credit Card Payment Services are available (by request) and strongly encouraged. You may of course pay manually, prior to scheduled due dates, using cash, check or Visa/MC/Discover. 


OUR DISNEY DANCERS WERE FABULOUS!!!

We had the best time at our workshops at Epcot on June 24, and enjoyed our classes so much!! Also, what a fabulous performance on June 25! Our dancers were beyond brilliant! You would never know that it was 95 degrees with high humidity by the way our students rocked out Waterside Stage at Downtown Disney!! Team meal at Planet Hollywood was such fun! So proud of my students!

 WHO WE ARE...
Since 1980. Perrysburg Academy of the Performing Arts has been a creative, nurturing and positive environment in the arts community, offering one of the largest, most extensive dance programs in NW Ohio, with the finest professional, experienced faculty!. Qualified and experienced dance teachers offer enjoyable and inspiring classes for students age 2-1/2 to adult.

The decision to give your child dance classes is not nearly as difficult as deciding where to have them study. Perrysburg Academy nurtures the individual potential of their students, creates performance opportunities and exposes children to a variety of dance forms. At Perrysburg Academy, dancers are encouraged to achieve their personal best; an average child does very well & the exceptional child flourishes with the excellent training they receive. We are a family-oriented school that aims to provide students with the very best amenities and a "home away from home" atmosphere. We want all of our students, new and old, to be an important part of our dance family.

Perrysburg Academy provides high quality dance classes to children in a non-competitive environment and wonderful performing opportunities. Classes include ballet, tap, jazz, musical theater, voice, lyrical jazz, modern, baton, Irish step dance, Hawaiian, hip hop, and preschool combination classes. We also offer dance workshops where the students get the chance to learn from and work one-on-one with professionals who have performed in shows such as Legally Blonde: The Musical, Beauty and the Beast, Les Miserables, Billy Elliot, Mary Poppins, Wicked, and A Chorus Line. Perrysburg Academy students have attended The Tony Awards and “Rockette for a Day” at Radio City Music Hall, and have performed in Spain, Jamaica, Downtown Disney, Cedar Point and aboard a Caribbean Cruise Ship.

At Perrysburg Academy, we do not emphasize training future "professional dancers,"  even though several of our students have gone on to make dance their career.  Instead, our goal is to train future "successful adults." What a student learns from dance class (beyond the obvious dance technique) can be applied to whatever our students decide to do in life.  Very few children will go on to become professional dancers, but many children, with excellent instruction, can go on to achieve wonderful results and extract a great deal of pleasure from dance classes. It promotes a healthy body, cooperation and as they master each milestone they learn leadership skills and gain a great deal of confidence, poise and self-esteem. Our students learn how to present themselves in front of an audience, whether that audience is in a theater or boardroom. Dancers learn time management and organizational skills, as well as balance, fexibility, strength, coordination, carriage, creativity, musicality, kinesthetic awareness, self-expression, communication, respect for others, commitment, determination, joy, excitement, self-respect, concentration, focus, responsibility, teamwork, tolerance, problem solving, critical thinking skills, self-discipline, goal-setting and prioritizing...all necessary for success in life.

Whether attending for fun and to make new friends, or studying with ambitions of one day performing professionally, Perrysburg Academy is the place to be!

"Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication to all of your dancers, your attention to detail and professionalism are certainly displayed during the recitals. Savannah is normally quite shy, but enjoys herself so much, and each year during the recital seems to find something else she wants to try in the fall! Thanks so much for everything." Miranda Hinojosa

REMINDER-WINTER WEATHER POLICY

 

Perrysburg Academy DOES NOT CLOSE just because Perrysburg Schools are closed due to snow. Our policy is to close when there is a LEVEL 2 OR 3 Snow emergency in Wood County, or in the City of Perrysburg. Please call the studio and there will be an appropriate weather-related message for you if we are not able to answer the phone. Use caution and good judgement if conditions in your area are unsafe for travel to the studio or gym, and make-up the missed class at a later date.
