The Weston Dance Academy opened their doors for youth and adult dance classes on August 1st. Miss Penny Burns will bring a wealth of dance and teaching experience to the Weston community. Fall classes begin Monday, August 14th.

Dancing has been Miss Penny's passion from an early age. She began dancing at the age of 3 and has been learning and teaching her entire life. She studied tap, ballet, jazz, acrobatics, and baton twirling. By the age of 10, she had received many trophies and awards in the arts, including USTA and NBTA championship titles in baton.

After graduating with honors from Mater Christi, Miss Penny's dance education was furthered when she studied the Graham technique and attended master dance classes in tap, her forte. She performed in Off-Broadway theatre, as well as numerous community theatres, and was lead majorette in New York City parades.

Miss Penny taught for a dance studio in New York which inspired her to open her own studio, Miss Penny's Dance Studio. After relocating to Florida, she began instructing in several dance studios in the Broward area. In the City of Cooper City, she initiated a recreational dance program which recently completed it's 25th successful year. She founded, directed, and choreographed the Rapture Dance Company. Rapture members proudly display many awards and successes including dance scholarships, performing in Super Bowl half-time shows on international television, and being featured in a special "Blue Devil" routine. Other successes include musical theatre, Miami Dolphins & Miami Heat cheerleaders, dance squads, and even prior students opening their own dance studios.

Her current endeavor brings the Weston Dance Academy to Weston. This studio provides a warm, happy, friendly environment where children and adults feel welcomed. A strong techincal dance background, thorough understanding of the potential of each individual, and inspiring them with the love of the arts, will develop self-confidence in each person to last a lifetime.

For ages 2 1/2 to adult, classes will include ballet/pointe, tap, jazz, hip hop, creative movement, acrobatics, cheerleading, baton, pilates, yoga, stretch-&-tone, senior stretch, salsa, ballroom dancing, street tap, belly dancing, modern, lyrical jazz, and choreography. Separate boy's classes are also offered in acrobatics, tap, and hip hop/break dancing. Special events will include birthday parties, private lessons, parent's night out, community performances and yearly recitals.
