A place for students to nurture their creativity and explore the connections between the academic world with dance and the theatre arts


We believe a combined academic and performing arts curriculum, located at DADA, will benefit young aspiring dancers to foster a life-long love of learning.  The Debbie Allen Middle School for the Arts academic program will have the foundation for students to have a superior and quality arts education experience in dance and the theatre arts.  The academic program is designed to provide a challenging, rigorous, and exciting curriculum that will propel students to excel and be successful at the high school level.   

The Debbie Allen Middle School for the Arts will be an independent, private school for aspiring young dancers in grades 6 through 8.  Starting in August of 2021, DADA will begin their middle school academic program starting with students in the 6th grade.  In August of 2022, grade 7 will be added followed by grade 8 in 2023.   Each grade level will be capped at 15 students with a total enrollment of 45 students by 2023.

Online applications for the 2021-2022 school year will be posted in October 2020.
