Welcome to the official website of Grossi Dance & Performing Arts Academy (GD&PAA). Proper dance and performing arts training is beneficial in so many ways. Thorough technique promotes good posture and coordination, muscle strength and flexibility. Good training promotes musical appreciation and artistic and creative expression as students learn to channel their energy constructively. Dance and theater arts training encourages poise, style and polish, giving a healthy respect for one's body and mind. Discipline learned in the dance and theater classes can be applied to life and school work as students learn to be better organized and gain responsibility and admiration for themselves and for the others in class.
