Tempe Dance Academy has been providing outstanding technical training in a positive environment for over 60 years. We strive to provide students with not only the technical dance skills to pursue a professional dance career, should they be interested, but more importantly arm them with essential life skills that lead to success in whatever they pursue.

Our students have gone on in the professional dance world to have wonderful experiences on stage, in film, TV and theater. Some have done company work while others have toured the world with top recording artists. Many have gone on to have very successful teaching careers.

Under the direction of Wanda Manville, the school brings quality dance education to their students inspiring young people to be the best dancers they can be. Ms. Wanda spearheads our educational tours around European countires, stoping to perform for the local residents. She is also the director of our beloved Spirit of Christmas shows that will be conducting it’s 37th year of performances this December. In addition to these opportunities, our dancers compete in various competitions locally and nationally and travel to Disneyland to perform.
