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, tuition-based, private school for aspiring young dancers in grades 6 through 8. Tuition for the 2021-2022 school year will be $25,000. 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. All classes will be held on-site.
