At Tilley’s Dance Academy, we’ve celebrated dance excellence since 1987. Our team has built generations of creativity and confidence at our facility, and we continually strive to help our students grow and blossom through the art of dance every day.

Owner Denise Tilley LeVan has danced her entire life. When she first opened the studio, Denise set out to create a safe and fun space for people to learn how to dance. For the past 32 years, she’s enjoyed watching young dancers grow up in her studio and helping them nurture a love for dance.

Denise and her staff believe dancing has the power to positively impact people’s lives. Whether you’re looking for competitive classes, adult dancing, or kids dance lessons in Statesville, NC, there’s something for everybody at Tilley’s Dance Academy!
