Welcome to Gillman’s Dance Academy

Celebrating 25 years 

Gillman’s Dance Academy is East Louisville’s premiere dance instruction facility. We strive to offer challenging programs that foster a love of dance at every level; from the serious dancer who intends to continue in the world of dance, to beginning dancers of all ages who want to experience the rewards that artistic discipline can bring to one’s life.

Gillman’s Dance Academy is proud to be the home of MAGIC, a youth dance company dedicated to providing a pre-professional performing experience to our dancers and bringing quality dance performances to the community.

Gillman’s classes range from Tiny Dancer to Pointe and include multiple levels of Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop and Lyrical Dance. We also offer certification courses in the Cecchetti Ballet Method,  focused on building a firm foundation in classical ballet technique, language and theory. We showcase our students each spring in our annual Performance, allowing dancers to experience what many have worked so hard to achieve: the glory of the spotlight!
