Sondance Academy
Dancing That Makes a Difference!

Our History

In 1996, a mom of a twirling three-year-old knew that this girl was born to dance. Her early dance years were filled with delight and blush colored tutus and all was sweet. Countless recitals came and went, but the mother noticed a shift over the years. The young girl’s costumes were shorter and tighter than before and the dance movements were inappropriate. Her mother knew the art of dance was a powerful gift and she wanted to be a part of bringing quality, wholesome dance to the Southern Maine community. With the help of like-minded parents, SonDance Academy was birthed in 2010! SonDance has been a safe and welcoming place for people of all ages, young and old, to experience growth through dance. Now for over a decade, SonDance has been offering dance instruction to our local community and loving each year!
