The St. Louis Academy of Dance (SLAD) was founded over three decades ago. SLAD offers dancers the most comprehensive, diversified faculty in the region. Our qualified and experienced instructors are professional performers and teachers, who excitedly present you with the most up-to-date choreography and music of this special art. Every moment, every exercise, every dance is taught to you with the intent to give you (and/or your child) pleasure and satisfaction. The SLAD staff gives toddlers, children, teens, and adults the love and attention that builds beautiful dancers. Our methods of teaching touch you with memories and self-esteem that last a lifetime - no matter when you begin.
"SLAD is a breath of fresh air when it comes to dance studios. I appreciate that with even the youngest kids they actually instruct ballet and work on technique rather than just letting the preschoolers play in a leotard and tights. The highlight of our year is Showtime because it is amazing to see such young kids’ talent on stage. It is simply amazing what they are able to accomplish in a year and is a professional performance that far exceeds my expectations each year! I also appreciate that the costumes are always tasteful and respectful of their age."
