Olmsted Performing Arts is a dance studio centered around the mission of providing students top level instruction in technique and artistry from the highest caliber teachers in the area.
At OPA every class is centered on a solid technical foundation that is age and level appropriate. In every class our dancers are challenged technically, mentally and artistically to develop into the best performing artists they can be. Most classes are open to students of any age and are grouped on skill level. Any student who is unsure of their class placement or whether they have approval for a specific dance class should contact Dance Department Director, Heather Dennen, at heather.dennen@
Our faculty includes instructors who have ballet company credits, international dance tour credits, elite certification credits, choreography award credits and much more to their names. Our faculty is dedicated to sharing their passion for dance with the next generation and using their extensive knowledge and experience to train students to be the best they can be. OPA faculty is constantly performing and continuing their own dance education to guarantee our students are receiving the most up to date and relevant training.
Dance students are expected to adhere to dress code requirements.
