Why Festival Dance Academy?

Festival Dance Academy has been providing quality dance instruction in a warm, supportive environment since 1972.  

We believe that every student matters, and we are dedicated to helping each reach their full potential.

Classes begin again at our UI studio on 

January 11th 2020

A wide selection of classes is currently meeting. Enrollment will remain open to ensure everyone ready to dance with us this season has the opportunity to do so.


Classes in Troy will start up again Wednesday, Jan 20th.

We are working with a new online class registration platform. This platform will save your information, so it can be easily updated for future enrollment.

Festival Dance Academy offers a diverse range of dance and conditioning courses including classes for dancers of all ages in Ballet, Jazz, 

Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Creative Dance, and Contemporary.  Offering supportive, classical instruction by professional faculty and dance majors from the University of Idaho, we also provide a wide array of performance opportunities for students and families. 

Festival Dance Academy's main location is in residence at the University of Idaho, and classes are taught in the recently renovated dance studio, PEB 212. The studio features a sprung floor covered with quality Marley.  Air is circulated directly from outside and only within the studio. A strict cleaning protocol is in place.

Festival Dance Academy is a proud member of the National Dance Education Organization.  With a strong investment in safety in the classroom, all faculty and staff are CPR and First Aid certified.  Many of our faculty have achieved degrees in Dance, Theater, Childhood Education, or are presently studying in the Dance Program at the University of Idaho.  Please visit the "Our Team" tab to read more about our amazing dance family.  

We look forward to dancing with you soon!
