The philosophy of the Dance Center of Queensbury is to provide an excellent standard in dance education to children and young adults in our community. Our goal is to develop good people in addition to well-trained dancers. Our dance community of students, facilitates learning and personal growth for all.


The Dance Center was established in 1979, under the direction of Barbara Tebeau, upon her retirement in 1999, The Dance Center continues the philosophy of dance education under the direction of Diane L. LaBruzzo. In 1992, the Dance Center established the Adirondack Ballet Theater (a not-for –profit) organization to enable children in our community the opportunity to perform in professional productions.

In addition to two yearly company performances, dancers participate in competitions throughout the Northeast and annual June performances.
