Grace Dance Academy offers classes for everyone! Some of our classes include ballet, jazz, tap, hiphop, and musical theater. We also have classes for young dancers and adults. Classes at Grace Dance Academy focus on quality training in a specific genre of dance while having fun and enjoying music and movement.
Grace Dance Academy's director and main teacher is Carly Fraher. Carly trained in ballet, jazz, tap, and many other styles of dance for 15 years mainly at the American Dance Center in Chicago, Illinois. As a dancer, she performed in many shows in the Chicago-land area as well as shows in Los Angeles and international dance festivals. Carly started teaching dance in Watertown in 2014, and she is excited to teach the majority of classes at Grace Dance Academy. Several assistant teachers at Grace Dance Academy have trained in dance from Carly.
Grace Dance Academy is proud to have two competitive dance teams. The pre-team ranges in age from five to ten, and the dance team ranges in age from nine to fifteen. The competitive teams train in ballet and jazz technique weekly. They also learn new choreography each year that is competed at several dance competitions in several different cities. Dancers must audition to be on the dance team.
Grace Dance Academy is proud to be located on the third floor of the Goss Opera House in Downtown Watertown. Dancers enter through the main entrance and take the stairs or elevator to the third floor.
In the case of health recommendations that cause Grace Dance Academy to not be able to hold "in person" classes, classes will continue to be offered virtually.
