The Dance Center and School of Performing Arts is the result of a beautiful merger of two well established Baton Rouge art schools with combined experience of enriching students' lives for over 40 years. Its vision is to achieve excellence through quality instruction in dance, music, drama, and art for students wishing to pursue a professional career as well as a wonderful education for those who prefer to learn about their art form for their own personal enjoyment. For dance, the school primarily offers training in classical ballet; but, also classes in jazz, tap, and hip hop as well as workshops in Modern Dance and Flamenco and master classes with guest teachers throughout the year.
Dance Center and School of Performing Arts is also the host school for the Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker. Through their "Dance with Us" program, students in the Baton Rouge area have the opportunity to audition and participate in this amazing, professional production at the LSU Union Theatre each November.
