ABOUT

Here's what you need to know about Valley Dance Academy!

​Our Teachers

Miss Tegan is the studio owner, manager and Acrobatic Arts Certified teacher. She has over 18 years of dance experience, beginning in a small town studio and moving from high school competition team (GO Wolverettes! 2 time state champs!) to studying dance in college. She is proficient in acrobatics, ballet, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, and more.

Miss Ashlee has over 10 years of dance experience, including competition and Disney performances! She is proficient in ballet, contemporary, hip hop, jazz, lyrical, musical theater, tap and more!

​Recitals

Traditional recitals are a dancers bread and butter, the way to showcase a whole season of learning without judges ( just adoring fans!) Routines include the technical skills dancers have learned and mastered during the season. All dancers are welcome to perform at recital!

​Competition Team

Competitions do not make or break a dancer, but provide a good unit of measure for progress and overall ability. We participate in competitions and love getting feedback, winning trophies and seeing other studios! What a fun way to be inspired by others and rewarded for hard work. Competitions are always optional, dancers must be invited to the team.

Community Performances

Dancing at things like the county fair, Iris Festival, The Oregon Garden, The Art Fair, FamilyFest and other venues brings performance experience, an awareness of dance and our school into the community.

ACROBATICS

We are certified to teach acrobatics!

Acrobatic Arts at VDA

Our studio is incredibly proud to offer Acrobatic Arts classes. We are certified to teach and have completed both Module 1 and Module 2 trainings. Safety, strength, balance, flexibility and tumbling are the core of what we teach to all levels each class.

Acrobatics is a highly artistic form of dance melded with tumbling and limbering skills. Various forms of balancing, contortion and tumbling are used to create a uniquely beautiful genre of dance. This style takes hard work, persistence, dedication and passion to excel.

Come try a class today. Watch your dancer grow in strength and ability each and every class!
