|THE MAINE DANCE ACADEMY
|The Maine Dance Academy, located in Caribou, Maine, first opened in August 1994 under the direction of Colleen E. DuPlissie. It has
served the Northern Maine area for the past 25 years, teaching students from age 2 through 18, and students from as far as Fort
Kent and Mars Hill. The Academy has 10 instructors whom have over 100 years of dance experience. Students at TMDA are
instructed in jazz, tap, lyrical ballet, hip-hop, highland, Celtic soft shoe, tap, theatrical jazz, and tumbling. All dancers and tumblers
are placed according to talent level. Our dance year runs from September to May.
In addition to our annual dance recital, held at the Caribou Performing Arts Center, our dancers perform at various Christmas
performances, local area pageants, and other fund-raisers. Our Academy has developed a strong reputation, and several of our
students have furthered their dance careers at the collegiate level and beyond.
Our goals are not only to teach children dance, but to help each child maximize their physical, mental, and social development resulting
from well organized dance programs with highly qualified, certified instructors.
Our studio is located at 15 Sweden Street, Suite 3 in Caribou, Maine, our studio phone number is 207-498-4027; the annual dance
recital is held at the Caribou Performing Arts Center, adjacent to Caribou High School. We hope we see you soon!
