The doors of the Summers Academy of Dance opened in 1996  on Berkshire Drive in Crystal Lake. Since that first day  dancers from 18 months old to adults; beginners to professionals have come through our doors to  train with our outstanding faculty and experience the joy of dancing.

Our Mission: To assist students in developing scholastic aptitude and excel in life by providing excellent education through various forms of dance and performing arts.

Summers Academy of Dance

At the Summers Academy of Dance you can find classes for the child, teen, or adult recreational dancer who enjoys dancing once or twice a week  for the creative, fun, and physical outlet.  If  you are looking for a more disciplined, program with more hours of training we offer award- winning competition teams, and a pre-professional ballet company.

Whether you are simply seeking to experience the joy of dance for personal accomplishment  or you are seeking a  professional career; we believe that dance should be disciplined, fun, and rewarding for every student.
