The Philadelphia Dance Academy (PDA) is located a few blocks from Society Hill in the Old City arts community, directly behind the Arden Theatre. The Academy offers a satellite Early Childhood Program in Rittenhouse Square.

Our goal at The Philadelphia Dance Academy is to provide exceptional dance training in a professional and positive environment. We view each student as an individual and aim to ensure he or she reaches maximum potential. Students are placed in appropriate training programs and taught by a professional, experienced faculty.

Our programs prioritize refined technique, dancer wellness, and artistic development. We offer: Early Childhood Dance, Primary and Pre-Professional Ballet Programs, a Boys Scholarship Program, Theater Dance, Adult/Teen Recreational Classes, and Pilates.

The Philadelphia Dance Academy is home to The Philadelphia Youth Ballet. PYB was founded to inspire dedicated young dancers by providing them with the opportunity to learn and perform a diverse repertoire. PYB rehearsals and performances help young dancers develop their artistry and build confidence, enhancing the technical precision demanded in their technique classes.
