Join Yanlai Dance Academy to explore a variety of Chinese cultures through diverse Chinese ethnic dance.
Yanlai Dance Academy is like no other school in the area. Founded by acclaimed professional dancer Yanlai Wu, it is the only dance school in Pittsburgh to offer dance instruction in both the Western and Eastern traditions. Ballet is offered to all students as an important foundation to train the body and improve carriage, flexibility and strength. American/European (Western) dances such as jazz, lyrical, modern and tap are offered. The school is praised for exquisite Chinese dance instruction and performances. We explore many traditions of Chinese dance - both folk and classical.
