Our Philosophy

Kohl Academy of Performing Arts was founded in 1977 as the Jane Kohl School of Dance . We are commited to providing high-quality performance classes to enhance the overall development of the child.  We provide a safe and child-centered environment to encourage our students to explore the performance arts with qualified, nurturing teachers.


We believe that performance training encourages young people to develop a positive self-image as they increase awareness of their physical being.  Along with improving coordination skills and developing muscular awareness.


Our classes are structured to stress proper technique through the use of standard terminology. Classes are well supervised while basics are taught with a positive approach in a fun environment. Class enrollment is limited in the preschool classes to 12.  Beginner, Intermediate, and advanced classes may be larger.


Our teachers have studied with DANCE MASTERS OF AMERICA and regularly attend master classes to maintain a high quality of teaching techniques and keep in tune with workshops to further their dance education.
