Dancers can study a variety of dance styles from our diversified, professional teaching staff. Owners, Kathryn Treadwell and Brittany Black created Emerge to motivate and develop happy, healthy dancers in a positive atmosphere.

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide high quality instruction in all areas of dance. We are committed to offering a progressive well rounded curriculum of instruction in a positive, friendly environment.

We believe that introducing and enriching your child in dance is a wonderful gift that will last forever! Dance stimulates the imagination, teaches poise, promotes good posture, body alignment, musical awareness, and develops rhythm and coordination. Dance increases strength, flexibility and exercises cognitive abilities. Involvement in the many forms of dance allows the student to explore movement, music, and creative expression as they learn to dance in a structured environment.


We believe that the students who have the chance to experience dance in a joyful way will make it a part of their lives. Emerge Dance Academy is more than just a dance school. Emerge is a place where students can develop his or her creative potential in a warm, positive and enthusiastic atmosphere.

If you’re familiar, or you are new to the dance community, we'd love to hear from you.
