INTRODUCING….

The Brittany Leazer Productions Academy of Dance!

For the last four years, our actors have had the opportunity to cultivate dance skill and technique from incredible instructors. In Fall of 2023 we will be launching the BLP Academy of Dance.

The BLP Academy of Dance will offer dance classes as well as a dance competition team to current students as well as our community.

How does this all work?

The BLP Dance Academy will offer classes that are open to all students in the community, whether they are an ECT Musical Theatre Company student, participate in Open School Shows, a part of the Dance Competition Team, or just want to take a dance class! All Dancers (recreational or company) will participate in an end-of the year recital on the weekend of May 17-18, 2024.

*please note that costume fees are NOT included in tuition. Parents will be responsible for all fees associated with the end of the year recital.

What makes us different?

At BLP we are committed to providing excellent arts education in a Christ- Centered positive environment. Our dancers, actors, and singers will above all else learn that they are known and loved by their Creator and by our faculty and staff. We will allow students opportunities to compete with positive songs and costumes that highlight dance and not immodesty. At the BLP Academy of Dance, we promote heathy competition and encourage our students that no matter the outcome, giving our best in all we do is an act of worship. We are grateful for the gifts and talents God has given our students, faculty, and staff.
