The Maine Dance Academy, located in Caribou, Maine, first opened in August 1994 under the
direction of Colleen E. DuPlissie. It has served the Northern Maine area for the past 20
years, teaching students from ages 2 through adult, and students from as far as Fort Kent
and Mars Hill to our neighboring Canadian friends. The Academy has 7 instructors and 2
assistant instructors. Students at TMDA are instructed in jazz, tap, lyrical, Pointe, hip-hop,
highland, Celtic soft shoe, theatrical jazz, tumbling and cheering. All dancers are placed
according to talent level. Our dance year runs from September to May.
In addition to our annual dance recital, held at the Caribou Performing Arts Center, our
dancers perform at various Christmas performances, local area pageants, and other
fund-raisers. Our Academy has developed a strong reputation, and several of our students
have furthered their dance careers at the collegiate level and beyond.
Our goals are not only to teach children dance, but to help each child maximize their
physical, mental, and social development resulting from well organized dance programs with
highly qualified, certified instructors.
Our annual dance recital is held at the Caribou Performing Arts Center, adjacent to Caribou
High School. To be part of our Academy, please register online in the left corner above.
