About Dance Academy USA

Dance Academy USA was established in 1990 by James R. and Jane R. Carter as a one-room studio on the corner of Stelling and Homestead, in the city of Cupertino. Since that time, the studio has grown to the largest dance school under one roof in the state of California with seven state of the art dance studio rooms that serve over 2,000 dancers yearly.

Top Dance Studio

Dance Academy USA has been recognized as one of the top studios in the country with the Capezio Ace Award, the most coveted dance award in America. This recognition is primarily due to our team’s love and commitment to the art of dance and community. We are most proud of how well our students, parents, and staff treat one another; with kindness, love, and encouragement.


Over time, we have proudly served over 70,000 Bay Area families. Dance Academy USA offers dance classes for children in Jazz, Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Contemporary, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Ballroom, Musical Theatre, Creative Dance and Intro to Dance, as well as various offerings for adults.


Please contact us if you are interested in joining our dance community.

Great for Families, Great for Kids

We are in the business of providing dance lessons to kids, but for us, it’s simpler than that. Our goal has been, is, and always will be – to make Dance Academy USA a great place to be; great for our families, great for our kids, and great for our staff. This is what we think about and work on, every day.

Our dance expertise, as a staff of over 55 amazing people, has been recognized by Dance Teacher Magazine as one of the best in the nation. In 2014, the Dance Teacher Magazine Board awarded Dance Academy USA and Ms. Jane Carter the most high ranking coveted dance award in America in the Private Studio/Conservatory category. This is called the Capezio Ace Award and was presented to Ms. Jane in New York City in front of a packed ballroom. There is no higher honor in the dance education industry.

We are continually upgrading our facilities, and provide on-going staff mentoring to ensure we provide the best possible experience; we have over 220 dance classes weekly at a variety of times so you can book classes for multiple children at the same time; we have over 40 of the top teachers in California to choose from; and we are conveniently located across the street from De Anza College on the corner of Highway 85 and Stevens Creek Blvd.

We realize you have a choice between many dance school options in the South Bay. We invite you to compare the options, walk around our school during studio hours, and see why our school has been chosen more than any other dance school in Cupertino, Sunnyvale, Los Altos, Mountain View, Saratoga, Los Gatos, Campbell, Santa Clara and West San Jose.

Growing Through Dance

As a staff, we like to believe that we are playing a small role in helping young children become strong, resilient, and independent adults through dance.
