Kelly Olsen Dance Academy is structured to meet the needs of dancers who desire exposure to a variety of dance styles, including jazz, pom, and hip-hop, with an emphasis on style, technical execution, flexibility, jumps, turns and performance. All dancers are evaluated by the staff and assigned to a level based on experience and skill. Instructors work hard to meet each camper’s individual needs. Teams are also welcome, as it is a great opportunity to work on routine building for the upcoming season. The Hofstra Dance team is a nationally recognized program with a UDA College National Championship Title in 2006, 2012, and 2013, 2016, 2017, and 2018, as well as a World Championship in 2017. Hofstra’s Kelly Olsen Dance Academy utilizes the University’s state-of-the-art, air-conditioned facilities.
