About Institute of Dance Artistry (IDA)

IDA, Institute of Dance Artistry, located in the Philadelphia suburbs, is a school of modern dance, ballet, pointe, jazz dance, tap, lyrical, and hip hop dance. By adhering to the philosophy that dance is an art, not a competitive sport, IDA provides the ideal dance education for all its students. Students with professional aspirations are able to make a smooth transition into the college and professional dance worlds, which also look at dance as an art. Students who dance for a fun hobby are able to do so in a positive, supportive, non-competitive environment. IDA believes in giving back to the community through dance and does so throughout the year with performances and fundraisers to raise money for charities.
Students of IDA are given the tools to develop strong dance technique, artistic ability, self-confidence, and passion for the art of dance. The individual and unique talents and abilities of all are embraced and encouraged. We have dance students of all ages from Philadelphia, Horsham, Spring House, Blue Bell, Upper Dublin, Ambler, Willow Grove, Conshohocken, North Wales, Montgomeryville and other Bucks and Montgomery County, PA locations.
All dance classes are taught by enthusiastic professionals with Bachelors and Masters of Fine Arts degrees in dance and current professional performers and choreographers on the Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York dance scenes.
