All studios are NOT the same...Experience the difference at WDA!

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to teach students proper technique in a fun and positive atmosphere.

BE A PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL! Your dancer will cherish the amazing experiences at WDA for years to come; during and after going through our program!

In our traditional, welcoming dance studio setting, students will develop discipline, good posture, grace, respect for others, high self-esteem, gain a love and appreciation for the arts AND develop long lasting friendships with their peers.  

At WDA, our primary focus is on the dancer’s growth, culminating in an end of season Spring Dance Concert for ages 6-High School and our Spring Grande Finale for ages 3-5. Students looking for more performance or competition opportunities may audition for our Company, WATERFORD DANCE ENSEMBLE! WDE Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop and Ballet Auditions are scheduled for Saturday June 23, 2018. Students can try out for as many teams as they like! Email us for info!

There are 2 program options available for our regular class season:

9-Month Program: Runs September through first week in June

Beginner students will develop a love for dance and obtain a solid foundation of technique to build upon. Students with experience will be challenged on a weekly basis, building on the strong technique they have established, while nurturing their passion for the art. All students in our 9-month program have the option of participating in an annual performance.

Summer Program:

Our Summer program is quite different from the regular school year. We offer 1-day workshops and an 8-week dance program for all levels of experience. Vacationing? Pricing is flexible! We offer a “Pay-per-Day” option in the Summer, so you ALWAYS get what you pay for!


Whether a student is taking class just for fun, or has aspirations of becoming a professional dancer or pursuing a teaching career, our instructors focus on helping each and every student become a well-rounded, strong dancer.

All classes are taught by a staff of knowledgeable, well-qualified adult instructors who have many years of experience.

Established in 2000, WDA is independently owned and operated. Our class fees are competitively priced and we offer excellent discounts for students who attend multiple classes as individuals or as a family. Several payment options are available to meet any budget.

Over the years, many students who have gone through our program have majored or minored in dance in a college program, have auditioned for the famed Julliard School in New York, the School of the Milwaukee Ballet and the Joffrey Ballet summer program.

Giving Back to the Community:

In addition to our food drives for Open Arms Mission, every Holiday Season, WDA partners up with One Hope United in Lake Villa. To this date, our students and families have donated gifts to over 1,300 local foster children. We also assist local organizations with fundraising by hosting dance workshops. If you are interested in a fundraiser for your organization, give us a call!
