About Us

Wissahickon Dance Academy (WDA) was established over 25 years ago as a ballet school by Nancy Malmed, a professionally trained ballet dancer with an MA in Dance from Temple University. Ballet classes range from pre-ballet through pre-professional and adult; in addition, classes are offered in jazz, tap, hip hop, modern and yoga. The school���s curriculum meets the needs of the casual dancer as well as the dancer on track for a professional career. WDA���s professional ballet faculty teach the Vaganova method of classical ballet - the method used in the former Soviet Union that produced ballet greats including Nureyev, Makarova, and Baryshnikov. The Vaganova method emphasizes physical strength, flexibility, body placement, and artistic expression. Housed under WDA's roof is our non-profit organization, International Ballet Exchange (IBE), who annually presents "The Nutcracker" with the Donetsk Ballet of Ukraine, giving WDA students the opportunity to perform with a professional ballet company. IBE also provides free ballet classes to schools in the Philadelphia School District in their residency programs. For information about IBE, go to www.internationalballet.org WDA students have study abroad opportunities: Intermediate and advanced students have studied in Donetsk, Ukraine on three occasions and studied at the National Ballet of Cuba in 2013. click here to read about the trip to Cuba click here to read about the trip to Ukraine
