Festival Dance Academy's main location is in residence at the University of Idaho, and classes are taught in the recently renovated dance studio, PEB 212.    The studio features a sprung floor covered with Marley. Air is circulated directly from outside and only within the studio. A strict cleaning protocol is in place.


Festival Dance Academy is a proud member of the National Dance Education Organization. With a strong investment in safety in the classroom, all faculty and staff are CPR and First Aid certified. Many of our faculty have achieved degrees in Dance, Theater, Childhood Education, or are presently studying in the Dance Program at the University of Idaho.

We look forward to dancing with you soon!

Festival Dance is pleased to announce that we have been approved to receive an American Rescue Plan grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to help the arts and cultural sector recover from the pandemic. FDPA is recommended to receive $100,000 over two years and plans to use this funding to recreate lost jobs and to fund performance facilities, and promotional efforts to encourage attendance and participation in Dance.



Our first effort in securing this grant is the hiring of a Community Engagement & Academy Director.
