When choosing a dance studio for yourself or your child, you have to ask what each studio has to offer that sets it apart.  As the only studio in the area that is connected to a professional company, The Academy at Terpsicorps knows that dance training is best when it is taught by those with real world experience in the art form.  With access to not only the finest teachers in the area, but a long list of acclaimed dancers and teachers from around the country, excited to come teach at our master classes and summer intensives, our students are given the best training available at a reasonable cost.  As a nonprofit organization, we are thrilled to offer dance scholarships to students from low income families, creating an inclusive, friendly and inspirational environment. 

Having opened its doors in September of 2015 to great acclaim, the Academy at Terpsicorps is Asheville's newest dance school and ballet conservatory. Providing the world class dance training consistent with the stylistic requirements of Terpsicorps Theatre of Dance, dancers young and old will be provided with a rich knowledge of classical technique and the ability to adapt to all styles and techniques.

The Academy encompasses a dance education division of dancers ages 3 -18, a pre-professional division of dancers ages 8-18 and a variety of diverse classes for adults. Classes include classical ballet, pointe, partnering, men's class, jazz, modern, contemporary, hip hop, tap, creative movement, yoga, conditioning and Pilates.

Our Fall term begins August 19.  Feel free to contact us at, 828.761.1277 with any questions!
