I married my husband, Mac, in Orlando, FL. and later started a family and had a beautiful daughter, Donnelle. It was time to begin that dream of mine in finally opening a dance studio and my husband’s home town in Santa Rosa County fit the bill.

Let me be the first to welcome you to my dream…. a dance studio that I’ve dreamt of for so long. A place where our students and families feel welcome, and our students leave more educated in the art that they love.  I hope you’ll grow with us here at Dance Academy of Santa Rosa, not only as a dancer, but as a well rounded, inspired person. We’ve started small, doubled in size, and in our third through sixth year, thanks to Santa Rosa, we’ve grown again! We’re ready to enlarge in year #12 and we’d love for you to join our dance family.

Once again, I welcome you to the eleventh year of Dance Academy of Santa Rosa. We look forward to growing with you!

Thank you for your support,

Laurie McCrory & Family

Welcome to the twelfth year of Dance Academy of Santa Rosa!! It’s been a dream of mine since I was very young to open my own dance studio where I would help young dancers establish a proper sense of dance technique while instilling in them a love for dance that I’ve enjoyed for so many years. I have been blessed with wonderful teachers and know what an important roll a teacher has on inspiring students. Through time, the love and passion for dance that my teachers instilled in me grew to where I was able to pursue a professional career in dance. For over 15 years, I’ve performed for major entertainment companies such as the Walt Disney World Co. theme parks, The House of Blues-Orlando, Mark II Dinner Theatre, and Capone’s Dinner and Show. I’ve been fortunate to have been in many television commercials, numerous convention shows, a music video and even a major motion picture. During all of this, I chased a dream of teaching, and choreographed for dancers all around the Orlando area. This all stems from the passion for dance that my teachers passed on to me while I was growing up in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
