Welcome to Darcy's!

Darcy's Dance and Performing Arts Academy

Founded in 1993, Darcy's Academy of Dance and Performing Arts is one of New York's leading, and most innovative, dance studios and is dedicated to all varieties of artistic performance. Located in Mahopac, Darcy's has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of New York's leading studios for instruction in the performing arts.

Offering a broad spectrum of instruction in literally every style of dance, including ballet, jazz, hip-hop and tap, the Academy focuses on all areas of artistic performance. We also have an award-winning Competition Team, that is geared towards our more serious students, and hip-hop crews for those who want to compete just for fun.

Whether you're simply looking for fun dance activities for toddlers or serious training for teenagers, there's a class to suit every age group, style, and ability level.
