Georgia Academy of Dance & the Performing Arts
The premiere educational performing arts center of Fayette and Coweta Counties. Georgia Academy of Dance & the Performing Arts, official school for Georgia Dance Theatre, has provided the highest level of performing arts education in our community for the past 28 seasons and is regarded as one of the Southeast's premier schools for performing arts education. Established in 1990, Georgia Academy of Dance & the Performing Arts has been dedicated to building a positive future in the performing arts from the classical to the contemporary and fostering avenues for aspiring professional dancers and artists alike.
To help foster this positive future, Davis founded Georgia Dance Theatre, a non-profit, civic organization, in 1990 to provide the serious student an intense study of dance and an opportunity to perform, while offering an avenue for those interested in pursuing a professional career in dance. In 1996, Georgia Dance Theatre Professional Company was established in order to expose these students to a higher level of dance. Today, Georgia Dance Theatre continues to be a growing company gaining recognition for its achievements all over the nation. Additionally, the company reaches thousands of people annually with professional performances, educational and outreach programs, and participating in charitable organizations and events. This scholarship program continues to provide opportunities for aspiring artists.
