at the MORTON ACADEMY we inspire and motivate young dancers.
fusing together fun and superior education our dance classes are designed to learn the discipline of ballet, develop confidence and self esteem through jazz and tap, and explore the exciting and unique cultures of modern contemporary and hip hop. building our dance community since February of 2015 the MORTON ACADEMY has proven to be an innovative leader of the creative arts influencing the future game changers and trend setting performers of Greater Springfield.
providing a fresh approach to a dance school our students are encouraged to chase their dreams, creating important and meaningful friendships, guiding them to achieve their best and be their best.
