Dyan Mulvey Dance Academy offers courses for students from ages 3 to adult, beginner through advanced. For over 30 years, the Dyan Mulvey Dance Academy has aimed to install dance techniques and style, the physical training necessary for the body development, a feeling for movement, music appreciation, and the emotional qualities needed for dance. When students leave the studio, they will have developed a stronger character, a greater awareness of themselves physically and a better appreciation and respect for the arts. Many of the studio’s students have performed throughout the U.S., Hawaii, and Europe. Dyan and staff have choreographed many of the studio’s live performances at The Palace Theatre, as well as musicals for DeSales of Lockport.
