We aim to inspire, motivate and instill a love of performance in every student!  Boss Academy offers a wide variety of classes (over 50 every week!) for all ages and abilities. Our curriculum focuses on technique and individual growth and development and small class sizes give students personalized attention and better opportunities to develop as a performer. 

Student training is augmented by access to guest teachers, choreographers, managers and agents from Los Angeles and New York City. In addition, we provide the opportunity for students to attend enrichment workshops, performances and competitions.  All Boss Academy students have a performance role in our original annual production.  Class placement is assigned based on the our evaluation of student abilities, potential, desire and attendance.
