Howell Academy of Dance is a top National and International award winning school for many reasons.
Howell Academy of Dance has been a leader in dance education since 1984. The exceptional faculty of qualified teachers gives the students exposure to a wide range of experience, techniques and styles. Your child’s individual capabilities will be carefully observed and developed in a caring yet disciplined atmosphere.
The school’s mission is to provide students of all ages with professional training with skills they need to enjoy music and dance for a lifetime. They also have the opportunity to participate in a year-end recital to show their family and friends their achievements. We currently have former students who are college and studio dance instructors, as well as professional performers. With two upgraded, state of the art locations in Howell, guests of the dancers can wait in our spacious waiting areas and watch the dancers through closed circuit televisions or observation windows.
