At BSDA, we pride ourselves in providing dance education for all ages and abilities. Our selections in music and costume are always age-appropriate, and dancers are training with dancers of a similar age and ability. As proud of our performance and competition teams as we are, our true focus has always been to ensure proper dance technique from an early age. Our daily goal is to instill and maintain a strong foundation of dance technique while always creating an atmosphere of fun (we never forget - DANCE should always be fun!) As our students gain more experience, the opportunities for them to perform and compete also becomes available for dancers of every ability. It is our foundation of strong technical skills that has allowed BSDA to enjoy great success at regional and national dance competitions.
Our spacious, clean facilities garner “wows” from everyone who walks through our doors. BSDA has two locations, one location in Brandon and one in South Tampa. The Brandon School of Dance Arts has over 10,000 square feet with four large dance studios. The Bay-Area School of Dance Arts has over 5,000 square feet with three large dance studios. All of our studios have viewing areas, marley floors, and high quality sound systems. Look at the pictures on the website - stop in - say hello!
We are currently celebrating our 37th year teaching dance, and we couldn’t do it without our wonderful staff. They are available to answer all of your questions. We have an excellent online system that allows you to easily register, pay by credit card (with an auto-pay option), and view your class information.
THERE ARE NO SURPRISES: Competition and recital schedules and the pricing information are released months in advance, costumes are distributed weeks before our recital’s dress rehearsals and class pictures.
There are many performance opportunities for our dancers at BSDA, because we know just how much you love showing off your hard work. We start with our annual family Holiday program in mid-December and conclude with our Annual Recital every June. The recital at the University of South Florida Theater, is a year-end exclamation point to a year of hard work. Our production includes costumes, lighting, and makeup to make every dancer feel like a “star”.
NATIONALLY RANKED COMPETITION TEAM
BSDA has a competition teams featuring our dancers from both Brandon and Bay-Area School of Dance Arts. These dancers range in age from 4 to 18 year olds with varying levels of experience and abilities.
In addition to the regional competitions during the spring and a national competition every summer, our dancers also have performance opportunities in the community throughout the year. Our competition teams have been consistent winners at both regional and national competitions, and the whole BSDA family is so incredibly proud to see these dancers representing the entire studio in the community.
