Our emphasis is on dance as a rewarding, fulfilling experience and is designed to meet the needs of any student interested in the art of dance. Great care and individual attention is given to nurturing the abilities of each student to their full potential. Enrolling your child at Performing Arts Dance Center is a step towards creating style, grace, poise, and self-confidence. Our studio creates a happy, loving, learning environment for your child. Our teachers are certified, and stress not only skills in dancing, but social development and effective interaction between other children and teachers.

Ms. Traci has over 30 years experience with caring certified professional faculty members.  She is an 8 year veteran of the New Orleans Saints Dance Team (Saintsations) and has performed in numerous places including Tokoyo, Japan for the American Bowl.  She is devoted to one studio location.  Ms. Traci and Faculty have received many Top Choreography Awards.  Faculty Members study the latest dances and choreography from Certified Master Teachers.
