Welcome to the Academy for Dance Arts



The Academy of Dance Arts (ADA), directed by Angela Kook, has offered a varied selection of dance classes since 1979. We are located in downtown Canton with over 4,500 square feet of studio space featuring superior sprung floors and high-grade Marley, Academy of Dance Arts is one of the top dance facilities in the area. Committed to encouraging our students in the true art of dance, we do so in a caring and professional manner. Students will benefit from the personal gratification of self-esteem, gracefulness and good posture. Our dedicated instructors stress proper technique, body placement and control, as well as preparing young dancers to perform. The faculty is comprised of teachers with years of experience in teaching and performing, each with specific areas of expertise, bringing ADA a wealth of knowledge to share. The Academy of Dance Arts program encourages the development of students from their first encounter with music and movement to becoming accomplished dancers. While many of our students go on to pursue professional careers in both teaching dance and performing, we focus on the excellence, fun and joy of dance at each level of achievement. The principles, discipline, artistry and mental/physical development acquired through the study of dance provide students with the confidence, focus and grace for success in years to come. Performing is an important aspect of a dancer's training and experience. All students perform in the ADA annual recital each May. Each class features choreographed selections that demonstrate technique levels from beginner to our most advanced ADA Performing Company. Each December ADA presents The Nutcracker involving both ADA company members and auditioned dancers aged five years and up from our ballet program.
