Annual Production
Second to none - definitely not your ordinary dance recital. A spectacular performance, showcasing your dancers, the “stars” of this production - complete with professional staging, scenery, lighting, music, costumes and professional program/yearbook. Productions are carefully planned and produced and we make sure that our students are well-prepared and feel confident about their performance.

All AoD students from our Preschool level to our Adult Level are invited to participate in our Annual Production and since dance is a performing art, we encourage each student to take advantage of this opportunity.

The studio keeps the lines of communication open through e-mail, notices sent home, social media, and now check the “What’s New” page on our website.

A Word from Our Director

We’re so glad you found us! We know having a studio home where your child feels loved and appreciated is important to you, and we know that you wish to receive the best training and value for your money! Here at the Academy of Dance, we believe each child is special and important. We know children develop at different rates, and meet each dancer at the level which they will feel the most accomplished. We do not promote children solely based on age, but rather technical ability, developmental level, and strength. Let’s face it- if you feel challenged, you’ll work hard to achieve your goals, but if you’re bored, you’re not going to put forth your best effort!  We hope to be able to find that happy medium where your child will develop into a dancer and an artist.

Our staff are all dancers and artists in our own rights. We’ve experienced dancing in dance companies, dancing in college, dancing in competitions, and dancing in the local dance schools. We have a vast experience in teaching, whether it be over 30 years of teaching around the world or as a Jr faculty (intern) member training to be able to take our teaching certification exams. We all can’t wait to share our passion for dance with you and your dancer.


We consider each of you a member of our family. We welcome you, the parent, to become involved in the studio. We have a Parent organization, The Expressions Dance Company INC, A Georgia Non-Profit organization, which coordinates volunteers for studio events, fundraising, prop building, and more! We work as a team, for we truly believe TEAM=Together Everyone Achieves More! And.. if you ever hung up your dance shoes as a child and wanted to wear them again, we offer the largest number of adult classes in Middle Georgia!

We are celebrating almost 50 years of bringing quality dance instruction to Warner Robins! Please stop by the studio and take a tour! We can’t wait to meet you!
