Our Story

Established in 1993, the Academy of Performing Arts has been educating and inspiring the Orangeville community through dance, drama and the arts. Offering dance classes for just about everyone! From our beautiful studio spaces to our amazing staff, we are sure that the Academy of Performing Arts is the right fit for you.

The academy offers classes in ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, musical theatre, acro, contemporary, lyrical, and hip-hop.

Whatever their goal - professional career or personal enjoyment - each student is offered equal attention with the opportunity to perform. Students are assigned to classes according to their level of training, their ability, and the effort they are prepared to make. This guarantees steady progress and instills self-confidence in the students. Class advancement is considered on the basis of individual achievement, and classes are not necessarily promoted as groups. 

The benefits of classical dance training become apparent to students of all ages, as they gain poise, grace and confidence. Awareness of the arts and through physical and mental discipline, artistic expression adds much value to today's generation as at any time in the past.


Let's Dance!
