Congratulations 🎉 to The Dance Academy of Bartlett your ADCC Studio of Excellence Award Winner in Decatur, AL


Studio picture from our Studio of Excellence win


What a weekend at Dance Machine competition! Our students danced their hearts out and won some great brag-worthy awards but once again, I’m most proud of being chosen as Studio of Excellence! Based on students and staff, we were chosen from 21 studios as representing the family atmosphere, supporting others, being well organized, competing in a variety of styles, speedy changing and more! Congrats to all for working together to win this honor!


We are closed for classes this week. Our office will be OPEN Mon-Thurs 10a-2p & Tues & Thurs 4:30-8:30p


Please help Ukraine! I don't know about you but it has been very hard watching what is happening in Ukraine right now. There are many charities to donate to, but I am never sure which are legitimate or how much gets to where it is supposed to. If you, like me, have been looking for a way to do something more to help, here is one way.

Some of you may know that I am a ballroom student and my teacher and his wife are from Ukraine. They recently came to our show at BPACC to give critique to our competitive dancers. Their families are still there.

Her mother is collecting for a volunteer animal organization as well as a few private shelters in Ukraine that she knows personally. They are overrun with animals with so many people having to leave their pets behind. Now that wire transfers are working again, she can receive funds, purchase and transport supplies as well as money to these facilities. She is just out of Dnipro. These are people that I know and trust. Also, since my husband is a veterinarian, this seemed like a perfect fit. If you find it in your heart to want to help out, please donate through my Venmo. I will then get the money to her mother in Ukraine via wire transfer (we think they are waiving transfer fees these days) for her to distribute.

If you pray, please keep Ukraine in your prayers.

Please donate through Venmo ... -Hannon-2 (my profile is a sunflower to assure you that it's me)

Thanks for your consideration,


We will be CLOSED tomorrow, Saturday, March 12 due to anticipated road conditions from the snow.


Due to the dropping of covid numbers in Shelby county, we are changing our current mask policy to rephrase to "masks are highly recommended" and not required. Teachers will be recording who is in a mask each class and if there is an exposure in the classroom, those that have not masked will need to quarantine for 10 days . We will continue to be transparent and let you know if there is a positive case that attended one of your child's classes.

Those on our competition teams, please remember that it affects the rest of the kids in your groups if you have to miss rehearsals or competitions due to quarantining so please try to be as careful as possible during our competition season.

As always, if you need to quarantine your dancer who feels fine, let us know 24 hours in advance so we can set up a zoom link for them to participate from home.

We are keeping our eyes on the Shelby county positive case numbers and if they begin rising too much again, we will need to adjust policies again. Please know that we take our responsibility of keeping our students safe very seriously and would never want to have any part of causing anyone's illness.

In the past year and a half we have been tremendously grateful at the support we have received from all of you knowing that everyone does not have indentical opinions but you continue to respect the studio policies. We will continue to do our best to adjust to the changing world.


Our competition team is at their first “normal” competition since Covid (last year studios were separated). They just won the award I am most proud of…for sportsmanship backstage! So proud of our dancers for being good people and not just good dancers!

We are proud of our diversity! Starting next week we will have shoe dye available to match tights. Skin toned tights for performances will have 3 choices for jazz/tap and 4 for ballet. Students whose shoes are tan or pink can adjust to match tights for a nice leg line. (White shoes for recreational students will not need to change)
