Peachtree Dance provides dance education for ages 18 months – 18 years in Ballet, Modern, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Irish, and Musical Theater. We are passionate about teaching strong dance technique in a warm, creative, and supportive environment. Our instructors have collegiate-level dance training and professional performance experience.


Peachtree Dance is home to Peachtree Dance Company, a youth performance troupe for dancers ages 7-18 that provides training, performance opportunities, and outlets for creativity and comradeship, with the intention of preparing dancers for opportunities in high school and beyond. In addition to holiday and spring recitals, Peachtree Dance Company performs in the Metro Atlanta area several times a year.

Regular attendance is an important factor in dance education. Please drop off and pick up your dancer within five minutes of the scheduled time. Three tardies count as one absence. A maximum of three absences are allowed per semester. Your dancer may attend up to three make-up classes per semester. Please contact director to schedule a make-up lesson.


The dance studios are located on the second floor of The Gym at Peachtree. Enter the main entrance of The Gym, proceed past the front desk to the end of the hall. Take the elevator or stairs down to the second floor. Our three studios are located in Rooms 2402, 2403, and 2405.


Dress code helps both the student and instructor. When students are properly dressed they feel prepared for class, move with greater ease, and, in turn, dance better. Dress code also helps instructors see students’ alignment more clearly. Hair is an important aspect of dress code.
