Experience Pottstown Dance Theatre
Founded in 1964, Pottstown Dance Theatre provides exceptional education in the art of dance. We have positively affected dance students’ lives for over fifty years and have consistently been voted “Best Dance School” by Mercury Readers for over a decade.
Pottstown Dance Theatre focuses on the growth of students as individuals. We believe that since dance is a performing art, performance experience is integral to dance education and our teaching curriculum and dance lessons span the entire school year. We do not just place a heavy emphasis on a spring recital. We offer a variety of enriching opportunities for students to both perform and further their skills.
Our students have received acclaim at Youth American Grand Prix (international dance competition) have been chosen for pre-professional programs at PA Academy of Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, The Rock School, Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance (NYC), American Ballet Theatre, The Bolshoi Ballet (NYC), The Joffrey Ballet and have become dancers in Momix, Paul Taylor Dance Company (Kennedy Center Honoree), Atlantic Festival Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet. Other protégés of the director have received full scholarships to the Juilliard School in New York, danced for Alvin Ailey, Beyoncé, and have become teachers, choreographers, and dance artists in their own right.

About Pottstown Dance Theatre
We place dance students in the level that will challenge the student technically, yet build and maintain self-confidence. It is common to remain in the same level for more than one year. Dance students are most successful when they progress at their own pace.
The school offers Ballet classes, Pointe classes, Tap classes, Modern classes, Jazz classes, African classes, Hip-Hop classes, Creative Movement classes, Irish classes, Break Dance classes, Highland classes, Musical Theater classes, and Pilates classes. We base the ballet program on the Vaganova Syllabus, as set up by the school of the Kirov Ballet in Russia. We welcome the dance students who work toward a career in dance, as well as the students that dance purely for the joy of movement and the benefits that transfer into daily living.
