On Your Toes Dance Academy & Performing Arts in Sunrise, FL, is the premier dance school in West Broward offering professional children's dance training as well as recreational classes for children that love to dance just for the fun of it. We offer a Pre-School program starting at the age of two. Our Kinderdance class for five year olds, or Intro to Dance for older children, provide an excellent introduction to Dance in general. Later students may follow a more formal structured curriculum through our Upper School or continue to take dance classes just one to two hours per week.
Dance provides a much needed discipline in today’s fast paced internet world. We believe that children, build certain character traits through the discipline of Dance. With the right teachers, the study of Classical Ballet along with our elective courses can help develop a physical, intelligent and self-disciplined young person. All children can highly benefit from the fundamentals of dance.
Our year-end recital is absolutely stunning. Every year we produce a full-length ballet story giving our students the rare opportunity of performing in a real ballet. We have presented classical ballets such as Coppelia, Sleeping Beauty and Giselle as well as some classics such as Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and Frozen the Ballet.
Celebrating our 24th anniversary, our expert instructors have earned college degrees in dance and education. We are proud members of the National Dance Educators Organization and the director is certified by the Florida Department of Education in Dance, Elementary Education and Health.

“We finally found an affordable dance school where the teachers are knowledgeable and the dance training is first rate. My daughters love the family atmosphere and their encouraging and nurturing teachers. Their Pre-K students get the same attention as their older dancers. Couldn't be happier.”

“Having danced myself years ago, I couldn't believe the high caliber training offered at On Your Toes. They have a serious but fun approach towards their Upper School students in Ballet class and my daughter has started Pointe with qualified teachers. She also loves the Jazz, Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Acro and Tap. Look no further!!!”
– Kacy Eisenman
“Last year the Ballet was beautiful and the Dance Concert amazing. No four hour recitals here. And prices are reasonable. I love that they're more formal and structured and that all of the music and dancing is always age-appropriate. The students always look so professional in their attire. I've noticed that my daughter is more focused and disciplined even at school."
