Melrose Dance Academy



My daughters, age 8 and 14, have been dancing at Melrose Dance Academy since they were 3 years old and look forward to returning to the dance studio every year! The studio owner is a sweet woman who cares about each dancer like she was her own child. She adeptly coordinates the music and costumes to the age and ability levels of her students with caring and understanding for any and all issues. I have always found her approachable when a question arises.
The dance studio is spotless. Cleanliness is a top priority and I appreciate that greatly.
My daughters love to dance at MDA to them it’s a home away home.

“My children have been dancing at Melrose Dance Academy since the age of 2 and 3.  They ADORE Miss Amanda and her staff.  Each class has been an opportunity for them to shine and showcase their strengths.  Their instructors truly love and know my children.  They offer chances for them to support other students as a means of gaining their own confidence and mastery of steps.  The atmosphere is more than a “dance academy.”  Melrose Dance Academy is a family.  The older students mentor the younger ones and the younger ones look up to the older ones as role models.  Our children have been gifted the chance to feel comfortable being themselves and therefore have really grown as dancers and as people. We feel so fortunate to call Melrose Dance Academy part of our lives.  Miss Amanda is a joy to work with and know. “

“We have been a part of the Melrose Dance Academy family for 6 years. It has been wonderful to watch my daughter develop as a dancer, form lasting friendships and most importantly, build her self confidence. The studio is clean and inviting and the dance instruction provided is the perfect balance of technique and form sprinkled with plenty of fun and creativity.”

Our Mission

Melrose Dance Academy aims not only to teach the art of dance, but to give students a strong sense of confidence and achievement. We want students to reach their full potential, and leave their dance classes feeling happy and successful. We strive to create a strong sense of community among our dancers and their families.  Our philosophy is to provide our students with a safe, fun, and positive environment so dancers can encourage, support, motivate and inspire each other. We offer a wide range of classes and performance opportunities. Most of all, we want every class you take, and every experience you have with us to be a positive one.



Performance Teams

The Melrose Dance Academy Performance Team is a group of dancers who audition and are selected to represent Melrose Dance Academy.  These dancers are interested in expanding their dance and performance education by being a part of this competitive and performance dance team. Through MDA, these dancers have the opportunity to showcase their talent on-stage at a local and regional level throughout the season.



For years, our school has provided students with an exciting performance experience through our annual recital.  The recital is a chance for dancers to shine in front of family and friends and offers our students a professionally directed performance that allows them to present to their families and friends the results of a year’s hard work and dedication.  A big part of dance training is learning through performance. Although performance opportunities can help prepare some students for a possible career in dance, they also contribute to children’s success in non-dance activities. The performing experience helps build self-esteem and self-confidence.
