About Dolly Haltzman Dance Academy, A Local Studio with 3 Locations
The accomplishments of Dolly Haltzman Dance Academy (DHDA) dancers shimmer with joy and pride. Our dancers have landed contracts with professional dance companies, perform in major films and on roadway, and receive scholarships to colleges and professional company schools.
This past summer our students were accepted for advanced ballet training at numerous nationally acclaimed programs including: the School of American Ballet, Pa Ballet, Gelsey Kirkland Ballet, Interlochen, North Carolina Ballet.

Today DHDA has 3 studios in Allentown, Kuhnsville and Emmaus and a professional staff of teaching artists attentive to a child’s creative and emotional growth, as well as to the child’s development of self- esteem.
