Today marks a lucky 7 years as 4S Dance Academy!

What this dance family has evolved into over the last lucky seven years is beyond what we could have ever dreamed possible. We have watched our students grow, our own babies have been raised in these halls, we’ve seen dancers graduate and move on through life, teachers and friends have passed through our halls on their own beautiful life journeys, our class offerings and sizes have evolved, we have weathered a pandemic together and come out stronger on the other side of it, our show production values increase incrementally with each year, and we’re only getting started!

What hasn’t changed is what remains at the heart of 4SDA, and it’s what drives the beautiful imagination, creativity and artistry we get to nurture every day!

To every single person who has been part of the journey that has allowed us to move forward each year, we thank you and we celebrate with YOU today!

Happy 7 years, and looking forward to the next chapter!
