THE SCHOOL

HISTORY

 

In 1992, Miss Michaela Lynch debuted Dance Arts Project at Harbor Bay Club in Alameda. In that first year, the school had one teacher and an enrollment of 50 dancers. With those 50 students, in July 1993, Dance Arts Project had its grand opening on Chestnut Street, where it still operates today.

 

Dance Arts Project has always offered ballet, children’s creative movement and modern dance. Recently, we’ve added classes in ballroom dance.

 

In 2002, Dance Arts Project expanded its facility to include a second studio, Deux.

 

Today, Dance Arts Project has five teachers working with hundreds of dancers every day, inspiring and encouraging self-esteem, creativity and the love of dance.
