Adirondack Dance where children come first and offering quality dance education to everyone.

Adirondack Dance Academy was formed in 2006 with Kathy Koester as the Artistic Director. Since dance is a performing art, the focus of the Academy is to provide a quality dance education with performance opportunities through out Clinton, Essex and Franklin Counties. Located on the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain, the school follows the principals of the Cecchetti Method of Dance and offers Cecchetti Dance Exams during the year to eligible dancers. Dancers are encouraged to reach their true potential and are provided with many opportunies to dance through the year. Zumba Fitness is offered in addition to dance classes along with new offerings this year in Jazz/Modern, Character, Folkloric, Musical Theatre and Hip Hop.

In addition to the Dance Academy, eligible dancers are invited to participate in the Adirondack Liturgical Dance Troupe which dances at community events and area churches. Upon completion of community service hours, dancers may be inducted into the local chapter of The National Honor Society for Dance, local charter held at the studio. The Adirondack Dance Company produces a large production at least once a year. Past performances have been: Degas - the Ballet, Swan Lake-act 2, Cinderella, The Firebird, Alice in Wonderland, Les Patineurs, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White - the Ballet, The Little Mermaid Ballet,The Snow Queen & A Midsummer's Night Dream. Although associated with Adirondack Dance Academy, the Adirondack Dance Company is a not for profit dance company and welcomes all dancers to audition for their productions whether they attend the Academy or not.
