Payne Academy dancers in The Nutcracker

... to provide more than a recreational activity, but a dance education.


Payne Academy of Performing Arts' mission is to develop students based on the "Whole Dancer" concept, which reflects the belief that well trained dancers not only have the skills and technique required in Ballet, but also the exposure to other art forms, other dance disciplines, and how these ultimately relate to life itself.

We have a state of the art learning facility which includes 3 studios with sprung flooring and an observation area for parents.

Our staff has a vast amount of teaching and professional performing experience.
