REVIVAL ACADEMY OF DANCE (RAD)
We are committed to making certain through care, ACCEPTANCE and support we INSPIRE our students to explore their creativity, soar above their limits, and dream big.
Our teachers are PASSIONATE about building the CONFIDENCE of each dancer by providing all ages with progressive lessons, positive feedback and the tools necessary to reach their own personal level of excellence.
We are faithful to our community and encourage dancers to join us in our mission to make this world a better place. With all this, our students and parents will grow as ONE FAMILY bonded together through dance.
There are closed circuit televisions installed in the waiting area for viewing throughout the dance season. When the waiting room is closed, we operate on Zoom!
We have two studios with dance flooring (dance shoes only please!), mirrors, and plenty of space even with COVID restrictions.
What Parents Say
The sense of family and lifelong connections that my daughter has found dancing with Melissa are some of the greatest gifts I could have hoped to have given her!
I'm so excited for my daughter! She loves dance and watching the older girls. She comes home and tries to do what they do! Great ladies that want to be awesome role models and so happy that my daughter is a part of this dance family.
My training under Melissa has taught me many valuable life lessons: discipline, self-love, leadership, and the ability to overcome obstacles.
Thank you for opening the studio and welcoming me into this new family. I don't know what I would do without you!

Revival Academy of Dance students and parents will be offered fundraising opportunities throughout the year! We welcome your help with fundraisers. Monies collected will be for the sole purpose of supporting the Phoenix Company Dancers.
PLEASE NOTE: Periodically throughout the dance season your children will be photographed during class. These photographs will be used in an end of the year recital calendar that will be sold as a fundraiser on recital night, for advertising purposes, and on promotional products. If you DO NOT want your child’s picture taken please notify the staff of Revival Academy of Dance ASAP. Thank you for your cooperation.
The Phoenix Company Dancers will sponsor studio parties several times during the year. This will allow the Revival Academy of Dance students the opportunity to mix, mingle and meet each other.
Although we try to provide a friendly atmosphere at Revival Academy of Dance, it is important for students to be respectful and quiet during class. This will help teachers and assistant teachers of Revival Academy of Dance to provide a nurturing and learning environment. Please remember to encourage each other in a supportive manner and to work together as a team. There is a ZERO-TOLERANCE POLICY for disruptive behavior during class and in the waiting area. Students not conforming to this rule will be asked to leave class.
Repeat incidences will result in being asked to leave the studio permanently.
