WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE

Eight Important Facts That Make
The American Theater Dance Workshop Environment So Unique.

• Quality Curriculum

Ballet - Broadway Theater Dance - Musical Theater - Tap - Lyrical Classes focus on technique, not rehearsals for a recital. We are not a competition school. We focus on helping students build a foundation towards a career in the arts.


• Live Musical Accompaniment

One of the rare studios which offers piano accompaniment for most classes.

Our artistic staff consists of instructors with years of both teaching and performing experience. Students do not teach classes.

as of July 1st 2018, we are the proud inhabitants of a Brand New, State of the Art, 6600 Square Foot, Climate Controlled, Performing Arts Center built to our exact specifications: featuring 3 Large, modern, fully mirrored studios with Brand New Marley floors specifically designed for dance. (Studio A is a Black Box Studio Theater with full Lighting and Sound capabilities.) Brand New Barres have been added to each studio, featuring a space-age anti-microbial support surface. All of our custom made, fully Sprung dance floors reduce the chance of injury and allow dancers to train longer without fatigue. Our 4th Studio is perfect for Music Rehearsals, Self-Taping, Private Lessons and On-Camera classes.

Since 2009, they have performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and repeatedly at the both the Tilles Center and the Salvatore Capezio Theater at Peridance in NYC. Our studio features two student performance companies, Both companies are accessible by invitation of the Artistic Director or by audition only. Our Ballet Repertory Company is led by World Renowned Ballerina and Coach - Katherine Healy. Our Theater Dance Repertory Company is overseen by Artistic Directors Michelle and Jerome Vivona and the company is instructed by visiting Guest Artists from the Broadway community, in month-long residencies.


• End Of Year Performance.

American Theater Dance Workshop features a professionally staged and lit performance onstage featuring coordinated studio attire, limited costumes, and props. This performance celebrates the hard work, dedication and commitment each of the students has made to themselves throughout the school year. Unlike many studios, ATDW doesn't begin working on these numbers until the end of winter and the beginning of Spring after all technical curriculum has been delivered. Performance dates are usually scheduled in early June
