Avondale Academy is the best of the best! My timid 2 year old has been going to the 2 year old preschool class and it has helped her develop socially, academically and more. I LOVE that the teachers enforce manners as well. My daughter has come home recognizing colors, shapes, numbers and always catches me off guard of just how much she has learned. And the 2 year old class is only once a week!! Very impressive. Plus the staff is top notch. Quality people running a quality program!

THANK YOU Avondale Academy!!Stephanie B.

Avondale Preschool is possibly the best choice I’ve made thus far in starting my child’s education. Ari is an only child, so not only has Avondale given him an incredible start academically, it has also given him a great opportunity to make friends. I love that everyday after school, my little boy comes home excited to share what he’s learned that day, and continue practicing at home. This has been an amazing experience for both of us and I highly recommend Avondale to all of my friends with young children.Kristen W.

I have two children who have attended Avondale, and a third starting next year. I LOVE IT!!! My daughter LOVES the dance teachers and the productions are really fun to watch and attend. My daughter is extremely shy and her teacher touched her heart so much that even though she is in the third grade she still talks about her, and gets excited to see her. I love the music and art projects they do in school. They bring home books each night and work on sight words also. What I love most about this school is that it feels like such a great balance of creativity and book learning. The staff is SO SO SO friendly and are always helpful. I really can’t say enough about the school. I really have had the best experiences here. All of my kids have loved it, and so have I.Lacey Jones
We have been very pleased with Avondale Academy. The initial concern about our child attending preschool was the educational curriculum. We did not want a daycare setting. Avondale’s curriculum is strongly based upon academics and is teaching my child things above his age level. He has developed both intellectually and socially beyond his years. The teachers are great and know the needs of each child and the classes are small enough to give each child the attention they need. I highly recommend Avondale Academy to any parent looking for a preschool for their child.Chris E.
We LOVE Little Scholars! Our 5 year old has learned so much this year and loves going to school. I am always so impressed with the things he brings home and how much he is learning, especially in reading and art. I also love the drop off system they have and that it allows us to have interaction with his teacher every time we drop him off and pick him up. I always feel like I know what’s going on and that they do a great job keeping parents in the loop. We will be signing up all our other kids when they are old enough for school.Kali P.

Preschool Creative Dance

Preschool Creative Dance – A Division of Innovations Dance Academy

At Avondale Preschool we offer creative dance classes immediately following or right before our preschool classes.

Our dance teachers will be on premise right as preschool ends. Thus ensuring a smooth transition from preschool to dance. Parents do not need to come back to make the transition between preschool and dance.

Your preschooler can wear their leo and pants or a pettiskirt to preschool and quickly change for dance class after preschool.

Our 45 min dance classes are developmentally appropriate for preschool students ages 3-5. Our lesson plans will encourage your dancer to learn to express their creativity through creative movements such as high, low, fast, slow, big, little, turns, and leaps and matching movements to the songs as well as using our fun dance props throughout their dance class.

At the end of each dance class the teachers will open the doors and invite parents in to see a 5 minute showcase of what was taught in class that day.

All of our “creative dancers” can choose to be a part of our yearly dance production that is held at a local High School or Jr. High. Each dance production is centered around a “popular” show or story that the students will be excited to be a part of.

You can add a creative dance class to your preschoolers schedule at the front desk.

My daughter is currently 3 and is in the 3-4 preschool class and does the creative dance class as well. They set up the classes well, so she transitions right from preschool to dance class. I have been very impressed with how much she has learned at preschool! She comes home with so many cute songs that she sings! One of my favorites is tops and bottoms that they sing to wash their hands. 🙂 She loves her art projects and all the things she has learned in her class. Lauren C.

Innovations Dance Academy

Innovations Dance Academy

“Come Be A Part of Our Story!”

Innovations Dance Academy is a production based studio for dancers ages 3-18 years old.  Each Spring our entire studio participates in a fun Broadway-style production!  Our productions create meaningful stage opportunities for each dancer.  At this time, dancers can show off their talents and share their passion for such a beautiful art form with all their family and friends. This time brings a feeling of accomplishment that boosts self-confidence, self-esteem and even relationships as we support one another. 

We pride our studio on having productions that are enjoyable for the entire family.  This is done in 3 steps: One, by creating an uplifting and beautiful atmosphere with scenery and costumes.  Two, choreographing well thought out numbers that highlight each dancer and that uses tasteful, age-appropriate music.  Three, professionally narrated with a unique and purposeful storyline that all ages can relate to. This recipe, plus our dancers’ powerful and motivating love of dance, has our audience members leaving with a smile on their face every time.

Productions in the past have included: Tinker-Bell’s Tale of Peter Pan, The Secret Garden, Cinderella, Where the Wild Things Are, The Little Match Girl, 12 Dancing Princesses and many others.  For 2017: we are excited to be presenting “Ariel’s Adventures!”  This will add a new twist to this classic that all are sure to enjoy and love.

In preparation for the Production, our first semester is heavily focused on technique.  It is concluded with an in-class showcase of progress, student choreography and awards.  The following semester focuses on performance, team work and choreography.  This semester is concluded with the magnificent Spring Production.

Innovations Dance Academy Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower each dancer with a solid technical and creative foundation while working to instill the values of self-confidence, discipline, teamwork, friendship, integrity, and modesty in their everyday lives.
