Welcome to International Academy of Dance where we... Dance for JOY!
Adult & Children's classes in Classical Ballet, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Tap, Irish Steppe, Acrobatix, Dance Basix, Zumba & Belly Dance.
Many stage performing opportunites for our dancers, including the annual Nutcracker at Cabrillo's Crocker Theater, a large scale production in June and our Emerging Choreographer's Showcase in March.
IAD offers a spacious state of the art facility with three beautiful studios with sprung floors and the same Marley dance surface used by the Royal Ballet to reduce injury and fatigue, in addition to comfortable waiting areas for parents and siblings.
IAD provides professional training in a comfortable and encouraging atmosphere for dancers of all ages and abilities. Our teaching philosophy encourages students to develop their style, artistry and individuality, while remaining true to the dance form studied.
All IAD instructors have been chosen for their ability to instill technique and artistry through their passion and dedication to the art of teaching dance. Our expert instructors are knowledgeable about history, theory and technique integral to the dance form they teach and cultivate an understanding beyond dance steps alone.
International Academy of Dance Director and Staff consider physical, mental and emotional wellness to be of utmost importance. We believe everyone can enjoy the benefits of dance classes from the three year old pre-ballet student to the pre-professional dancer or adult student looking for an enjoyable way to exercise. Classes for parents and caregivers are provided during certain children's classes, so instead of waiting around... you can dance or exercise for YOU!
More than dance.... dance is health, balance, poise, grace, joy, energy and synergistic motion.
Join the movement to dance with JOY! We look forward to seeing you in the studio and the opportunity to share our love of dance!
