Peabody Dance

Celebrating 100 years of excellence and innovation in American dance training

Melissa Stafford, Director
Barbara Weisberger, Artistic Advisor

Celebrating its 100th birthday in December 2014, Peabody Dance is one of the oldest continuously-operating dance training centers in the United States. Throughout its remarkable life span, Peabody has pioneered new dance forms, mounted numerous collaborative projects, partnered with prominent figures in 20th and 21st century American dance, and produced accomplished professional dancers, choreographers, directors, and teachers. Few, if any, American dance training centers can match that level of accomplishment.

Today, Peabody Dance is keeping in step with the progression of American dance into the 21st century and remains committed to serving its art form and its community.
