BSDA was founded in 1983, under the artistic direction of Teresa Paleveda-Oscher. BSDA has established itself as one of Tampa Bay's premier dance studios, by providing experienced and highly qualified teachers who offer the most up-to-date technique and choreography available. BSDA strives to ensure a fun family atmosphere, while instilling the fundamentals of the arts and life skills in a professional environment. We not only provide the technical skills to pursue a professional career in dance, but we try to provide our students with life skills such as promptness, discipline, confidence, self-esteem, and respect for one's-self and others. These are life long assets that will help them succeed in any career. Being able to see each and every student grow and achieve their goals as individuals is far more important to us than winning a trophy. We believe in a healthy development and well-being of our students.
BSDA has two locations, one location in Brandon and one in South Tampa.
