Hockessin Athletic Club’s Stage Stars Dance and Acro Studio is a top dance studio in New Castle County, Delaware. Lovingly known as SSDA, the studio and instructors have given quality dance instruction to the greater Hockessin community in Northern Delaware and Southern Chester County for over a decade. As the largest local dance studio, thousands of kids have passed through the dance program at HAC. Dance Studio Director, Angie Craft, combines fun with technique to ensure classes are enjoyable for dancers of all ages.
Dance instruction begins at age three with a blend of ballet and tap, and progresses into traditional specific dance techniques including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, musical theater, pointe, and hip hop. The dance studio classes run from September through May, culminating in an optional end-of-the-year dance recital. New dancers are strongly encouraged to join at any time during the season – it’s never too late to dance! Recreational dance programs are also available during the summer for our dancers who don’t want to miss a beat!
While many of our dancers began with the tot dance classes, our curriculum is designed so that no matter their age, children are encouraged to begin learning to dance!
Dance lessons at SSDA are not only fun, but are great for building self-esteem, friendships, and fine motor skills. Stage Stars Dance and Acro is also recognized in New Castle County, Delaware for its award-winning choreography and company dance team. Our competitive dance team travels all over for competitions and events, including the annual Dance the World at Walt Disney World.
Stage Stars Dance and Acro is open to members and non-members, though members ages 3-13 enjoy one weekly class of dance instruction included with their family membership.
When your youth dancer is ready to begin their dance journey, you won’t be disappointed with your choice to have your child bloom with Stage Stars Dance and Acro!

Stage Stars Dance and Acro started off as a place where we could let our daughter do what she loved to do, dance. Little did we know, shortly after joining the studio that this community would transition into another layer of our family. The proper technical training, conceptual growth and the motivation and encouragement our daughter receives from the teachers are the perfect formula for success. Although a long term career or pathway to dance is always exciting, this program focuses first on building confidence, encouraging others, working as a team and understanding the technique first and foremost. Thank you Stage Stars for giving our daughter another group of fans in her life, besides us.
