Welcome to P&D
Since 1969, Priscilla and Dana's School of Dance has provided professional dance instruction in the Kansas City, Missouri metropolitan area. We offer recreational and competitive classes in tap, ballet, pointe, modern, lyrical, jazz and hip hop for children ages 3 and up.
Although we are located in North Kansas City, we draw students from all over the metropolitan area. Besides Kansas City, some of the other surrounding areas include cities like Belton, Blue Springs, Cameron, Excelsior Springs, Kearney, Mission Hills, Lawrence, Leawood, Lee's Summit, Liberty, Overland Park, Olathe, Platte City, Raymore, Raytown, Smithville, St. Joseph, Weston and Topeka.
Exciting news for P&D dancer Brooklyn Funk! Brooklyn has booked the starring role in a music video for Grammy-nominated singer Britt Nicole. Brooklyn will be acting and dancing to a contemporary piece to Britt's song "When She Cries." Shooting is this summer over 10 days in New York City!
We are thrilled to announce that P&D dancer Sarah Waller has been accepted to the International Summer Dance Intensive at the Joffrey Academy of Dance, Official School of the Joffrey Ballet in Chicago. Only 150 kids age 12-20 are accepted out of hundreds that audition all over the world. WOW - GO SARAH!
The International Summer Dance Intensive is a five-week intensive designed for the serious ballet student, ages 12 and older, who is aspiring to a professional dance career. Daily classes include ballet technique, pointe, variations, men's class, partnering, and classical repertoire. The program will also include weekly classes in modern, jazz, body conditioning, character, contemporary repertoire, and Pilates.
Seminars on Joffrey history and dance careers, as well as exciting field trips around Chicago are all a part of this unique experience. Classes are taught by The Joffrey Ballet’s Artistic Staff and Joffrey Academy Faculty. This intensive culminates with a presentation to showcase everything the students have learned.
