Star Academies

Students progress through the Academies and receive a new colored leotard at each level.

Through 23 years of teaching dance in Oro Valley, we have created a program that nourishes the dancer with the technique and inspiration she needs to grow in confidence and technical skill while still balancing a healthy family life.

Our dancers progress from the Shimmer Academy to the Sparkle Academy, then to the Shine Academy, and on to the Inspire Academy. Dancers progress at Centre Stage until completion of their academy and then are promoted into the next academy.

An improved system, a better experience, a greater result: Because we know what it takes to make beautiful dancers, we have developed a system to ensure that dancers will excel and meet their maximum potential. Dancers are placed into an Academy where their path is clearly outlined and their progress is carefully monitored. Within these academies, children are grouped by age and skill level. They take classes according to a structured curriculum. They grow together in skill, friendship, and excellence.
