About Southwest Dance Academy

I have always loved dancing and performing, but after teaching my first class at age 15, I knew that teaching was what I wanted to do.

My wife and I started Summerlin Dance Academy in 2002. Summerlin Dance Academy has grown over the years from a 2-room studio with just about 1,500 sq/ft to two locations with 9 rooms between both studios and over 15,000 sq/ft. Our friendly, family atmosphere makes coming to the studio fun not only for the students, but for the waiting parents, too.

We have viewing windows in most of the dance rooms which makes watching your child in class very easy. For your convenience, we also have a flat screen TV that broadcasts live video from each dance room, a TV to watch your favorite shows, free wireless internet, 3 bathrooms, and 2 dressing rooms.

The health and well-being of our clients are top priority. We have a Purell hand sanitizer station in the lobby to help prevent the spread of germs. Our studios are professionally cleaned regularly. They use a "Green Cleaning Process" that is designed to provide a clean and safe environment free of harsh, toxic chemicals and utilizes the most up to date equipment and supplies.

Highlights of our cleaning service include:

  • Use of vacuums with high efficiency dual filtration that trap over 99% of all contaminants for improved indoor air quality.
  • Microfiber technology plays an integral part in the Green Cle aning Process to ensure that the most effective cleaning is maintained.
  • Touch points are wiped and sanitized to provide a cleaner and healthier environment.
  • Adherence to the highest standards using cleaning products that are safe, environmentally friendly, readily biodegradable, non-flammable, non-corrosive, non-toxic, VOC free and which are renewable without leaving any residual or buildup.

Whether you are taking just one class a week for recreation or 12 classes a week and on the competition team, you will receive the highest level of dance education.

Our teachers are of the highest caliber. Please visit our instructor section to get to know them better, and visit our classes section to see what they're teaching.

We always offer the first class free for new students, so come on down and see what you like. We are proud to say that Studio One's Summerlin Dance Academy is ranked #1 in Nevada and top 25 in the U.S. by the Federation of Dance Competitions.
