Accelerated Training Program
The Perla School offers students an encouraging and disciplined environment to pursue their dance education. Our goal is to produce dancers that are technically and artistically prepared to achieve their goals as performing artists. We focus on training the individual and we do not try to make the student fit into a standard mold.

Diverse Performance Opportunities 
The Perla School is committed to inspiring individuals toward character, discipline, and determination. We want to create an environment where it is better to give than to receive. School performances, demonstrations, and other free public performances are a way to encourage our students to use their talents to “give back.”

Unique Academic Environment 
Academic education is vital to The Perla School’s objectives. We want our students to be ready to attend any college or university. At The Perla, parents have the choice of whatever curriculum will work best for their individual student. We strive to provide an environment for the students to study throughout the week, in the midst of their dance training.
