Owned and operated by seasoned performers Matthew and Adrienne Terry, The Ruby Slipper Performing Arts Academy imparts theatrical knowledge and skills to burgeoning artists of all ages. In weekly dance classes, instructors guide hoofers of all experience levels through pirouettes, time steps, and hokey pokeys, and toddlers begin musical exploration in the Creative Movement session. Adrienne imparts knowledge gleaned during years in front of the footlights in musical-theater dance classes, which focus on Broadway-style dance moves. Apprentices can also vault into the spotlight by way of group voice classes or drama lessons, which teach young thespians improvisation skills, diaphragm control, and the best way to cry in an Oscar speech.
