Welcome to Arches Dance Academy; where you will soar to your full potential! Founded in January 2011, Arches is a ballet-based training facility where every dancer is treated as the beautiful and unique individual that they are. We specialize in teaching proper technique, and do so while in a positive, nurturing, upbeat, and "sparkly" environment. Arches is for everyone; whether you are a beginner looking to brush up on the basics, or if you are a serious dancer wanting to obtain the skills that will prepare you for a professional career in dance. We offer classes for dancers ages 3-19 that have a strong desire to learn and a love for dance!

I fully embrace the individuality of each dancer that enters my doors, and I am very passionate about bringing out the very best in each and every one of my students. The greatest gift in my life is the opportunity to share my deep love of dance with the youth of Saint Louis! On behalf of the entire Arches Dance Academy faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to our wonderful family of dancers. Your journey to achieving your dreams, whatever they may be, begins now.

- Emily Fagan, Artistic Director
