Who we are
Anchorage Music & Dance Center is a unique school offering quality private & group music and dance classes at one convenient location. Multiple students can take private or group music lessons and dance classes at the same time on the same day. That means parents only have to drive to one location for everyone's lessons & classes. What a time saver for mom and dad!
We offer private music lessons for guitar, piano, drums, voice, violin, cello, viola & bass. We have a preschool music program called, Music FunTime that teaches children ages 18months–5yrs to read music! Interested in group music classes? We have Kindergarten Keyboard & Beginner Guitar Classes, as well as a brand new Mariachi Band Class.
Our students perform in three formal recitals each year: December, May & July on our Center Stage at the studio. Music students also participate in our Music Club which provides performance opportunities in a more casual environment. We believe that students who perform regularly learn the joy of sharing their music with others, while overcoming any hesitation or fears about participating in formal recitals.
Our movement & dance classes expose youngsters to dance in a positive atmosphere—especially our Angelina Ballerina Ballet Classes & Preschool “Fun with” classes for 3-5yrs. Dance classes for Kindergarteners ages 5-6yrs and students ages 6yrs and up include ballet, musical theatre, jazz, hip hop, tap & more. Our annual Spring Dance Recital is always an exciting time when our students get to perform on stage at the Wendy Williamson Auditorium at UAA.
We also have a non-competitive, performance dance team called, Evolution Dance Company. Auditions for this team are held each spring, and students perform at our recitals and in venues around Anchorage. We perform for groups and organizations in Anchorage for free to allow our students an opportunity to perform and share their love of dance with others!
