"INSTILLING THE JOY OF DANCE WITH NURTURING TEACHERS IN A NON-COMPETITIVE ENVIRONMENT"
Sue Van Voorhis began and shared her love of dance with students in 1975 at the Dance Centre under the direction of Lynnette Schisla. In 1988, Sue and a partner founded The Dance Academy at 116th in Fishers. Many students followed her from the Dance Centre, and with the additional students from the new area, they soon outgrew the location. They opened a new studio upstairs in the Deveaus Gymnastics facility.
In 1999, Sue continued her dream of teaching dance, and became the sole owner of her own studio which is how Academy of Dance Arts was born. She renovated a building located on 116th Street across from the Municipal building. After 6 incredible years, ADA grew so much it brought us to our current 7800 square facility on 121st Street.
ADA is now over 20 years old and under new ownership. Rebecca Jones, who has taught at ADA for over 15 years is continuing Sue's legacy of instilling joy and sharing the love of dance with her students. You can view Rebeccas bio here.
