OUR MISSION

Founded upon the premise of making dance fun for all ages, our studio doors opened seventeen years ago, under the name of Terrific Time Dance Studio.  Now, we are excited to serve you as Amherst Dance Academy!  A new name, but our foundation is the same.  We believe that dance is not just about competition, stage performance, and technique.  Dance is more powerful than that.  Don't get us wrong, though, we support and participate in competitions, performances, and dance recitals; and much of our class time is spent learning correct technique.  However, our main focus is making sure that the dancers learn to love dancing!  That means creating an environment that is positive and energetic.  We believe that each dancer should be given the opportunity to achieve something incredible, and this becomes possible when the environment reflects that the sky is the limit!

OUR GOAL

At Amherst Dance Academy, our goal is to provide dance education, miscellaneous dancewear, and personal growth opportunities at a competitive and affordable price.  We take pride in being able to offer our dancers more than what they would find at other studios.  We also take very seriously the environment and education your dancer receives.  Our goal is to provide a challenging, positive, and fun environment that is influential in the lives of our dancers as we teach and build in your dancer proper dance technique, respect, discipline, and self-esteem.  We believe even difficult things can be achieved when the bar is set high and and the door of opportunity is left wide open for the dancer to walk through it.

 Welcome to Amherst Dance Academy's website.  We are glad you are here and want to invite you to take a look at our studio and all that there is to offer.  Do you ever wonder why your child dances around the kitchen floor at every possible sound of music?  Do they enjoy music so much so that they just can't sit down while listening?  Dance is definitely an outlet for energy, but it is also a skill that can be taught.  Dance is an opportunity to develop strength, discipline, teamwork, confidence, and to bring out natural talent.  Whether you are a little tot almost turning 3yrs. old, or you are an adult looking for an alternative exercise idea, we would love to show you how to have a terrific time dancing with us.

We are located right in the town of Amherst, VA right next to Food Lion in the Mountain View Plaza and serve families from all around Amherst and surrounding areas: Madison Heights, Lynchburg, Nelson, Shipman, Buena Vista, Pleasant View, Charlottesville, and many more.
