Dance Arts Center


The Dance Arts Center, a family owned business, is located in McKinney at the Community Center and in Lewisville at the MCL Grand. The Dance Arts Center offers classes in Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Baton, Hip Hop, Clog, and Country & Western. The schools offer a friendly and fun atmosphere which enables the students to gain confidence, poise and grace. LouAnn Martin Vance and Perry Martin, along with their highly qualified and friendly staff, make dancing fun for all the children, teens and adults who want to learn to dance. Joan, LouAnn and Perry have been teaching Country & Western couples classes since 1980. For more information: or email:

The Dance Arts Center is an ongoing dance program. Classes are held September through May with a recital in the spring. Dress rehearsal and recital will be on the same day. To ensure a quality learning environment, we have two visiting days per dance season. Child must be potty trained or in pull-ups.
