Why should you choose the Academy at Terpsicorps for your training?  The single most important thing any school has to offer is their faculty.  Professional teachers with knowledge of the intricacies of the dance world, who understand the challenges and opportunities available are the back bone of a great program for aspiring dancers.  We are excited to have a curriculum created with the guidance of Dayna Fox.  Dayna is on faculty at UNC School of the Arts and for over a decade was the director of their preparatory program, arguably one of the most successful and prestigious programs for pre-high school aged students in the country.
