PACE Academy



Local parents have spoken, and PACE Academy has been named as one of Hulafrog's Most Loved Dance Class Providers of 2014.

PACE Academy Dance Studio is proud to offer the Columbia area the opportunity to participate in a non-competitive dance program. Instead, students gain performance experience through lecture demonstrations, recitals, and community events without the pressure and cost of the competition circuit. Our classes encourage dancers to build strong friendships with students from different backgrounds, schools, family compositions, dance ability levels and ages.

Serving the Columbia area since 2009, PACE Academy employs highly skilled, educated and supportive teachers; in fact, the majority of the faculty hold a BFA in dance. We strive to challenge each student at their level by incorporating familiar combinations and new exercises with encouraging personal feedback in each class. Our process-focused education celebrates the milestones students reach in the classroom as much as their final presentation on stage.

Our affiliation with PACE Youth Theater gives our dance students other avenues to pursue performance opportunities; however, involvement in PACE is not required as a student at PACE Academy. With such a unique and positive venue to study dance at PACE Academy, it is no wonder that you should be dancing!
