Welcome to The Academy of Dance by Lori located in the South Hills of Pittsburgh near the South Hills Village Mall.


The Academy was developed to bring fun, creative and educational classes to children ages 2 through adult. Our goal is to provide a fun and nurturing dance program that creates an enviornment where children's dreams come true! The school was founded in 1985 by Lori Javornick and in 2001 Michelle Dawson joined her as co-director.

All levels of dance instruction are taught, including pre-school dance, ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary dance, cheerleading, choreography and more. There are also all boys hip-hop and tumbling classes. 

Join us at our beautiful facility with over 6,300 square feet of studio space! Our facility includes 4 large dance studios, a complete gym, a specialized studio for our early childhood dance programs, central air conditioning, 15 foot ceilings, multiple ceiling fans, over 75 parking spaces, and outside seating. All of this & within a short walk of other local stores.
