S & A Dance Academy






The name S&A Dance Academy got started in the year 2000, with the Los Lunas Christmas Light parade. My sister Andrea and I Sadie Telles wanted to be in the parade so that we could hopefully get enough people interested so that we could get our dance studio open. Our father helped us come up with the name which stands for Sadie and Andrea, and so our dance group began.

Throughout the years my sister and I would dream about starting a dance studio and with enough motivation and the help of our parents we began looking for an affordable place to rent and get our business started.

We met a woman by the name of Stacey Johnston who ald had a dance class and we began to share the building with her so that it would be easier on all of us. Slowly S&A began to grow and today we have a good size group with both boys and girls eager to learn.




Since S&A Dance Academy has been open we have been performing all over New Mexico
