In 2006, A Performing Arts Academy became the realized dream of Susan Byrne, former Owner/Director of Dance Exclusive in Swampscott and Seanna Chmura, 3rd generation Owner/Director of The Deane School Of Dance in Salem. They created the academy with a singular goal: To teach dance...to children and young adults...in a warm, friendly and encouraging environment.
