Everyone that studies at DAA plays a unique and important part in keeping our studio one of the top schools in the country. We have earned the title of “The Best Dance Studio in Traverse City”. Our performance company, Company Dance Traverse (CDT) has been selected as Michigan’s representative at the “Dance Excellence” International Dance Festival in Los Angeles for the past five years. In addition, CDT has consistently earned honors in local, state, and national competition. These awards include “Good Sportsmanship” and “Class Act” Honors ~ attributes we expect from all of our students and parents. The Class Act Honor is awarded to the group that best displays professional, quality, age appropriate choreography, and performs all of their pieces with class and professionalism. These are great honors that we share with all of you. We expect all of our students to uphold this honor and abide by all of the Dance Arts Academy rules and procedures. Parents, please help us achieve “Class Act” behavior from all of our students.
