Call about Summer Lessons


I have been the proud owner of Dearborn Dance Academy since 1991. In the course of those years I have been privileged to share my vision of dance as a performing art with many talented young people. Our experienced teaching staff has a mission of developing technical skills, self-discipline, confidence and poise, through dance. Realizing this mission has been possible because of parents who teach their children the value of long term commitment and dedication to doing one thing very well. By keeping their children focused on excelling in an activity like dance, we help them develop character and prepare them for success in all areas of life.

Owner and Artistic Director

I am so devastated to announce that I must cancel the Dearborn Dance Academy 2020 recital because of COVID-19 and the need for social distancing with its implications for a large gathering.  

My staff and I are looking forward to opening the studio again.  We truly miss all of your children and cannot wait to work with them again.  Please check your email and our website ( regularly for information on a date for re-opening.

Please contact Pat via text at 248-231-9442 if you are interested in summer classes, should we be able to open in time.

In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.
