Sponsored by The Dance Academy

The Dance Academy (TDA) offers training for students of dance with exceptional dance training in a professional and positive environment. They believe dance should be both an educational and an inspirational experience. Each dancer is unique, and TDA aims to ensure he or she reaches their maximum potential. They offer several dance classes and programs for students of all ages. TDA’s dance classes are designed to help each child develop strong core techniques and artistic talent. They offer toddler dance, ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, lyrical, creative dance, theater dance, and tumbling. The students at The Dance Academy range from 2 ½ to young adults. Their goal is for their dancers to have fun, develop their creative expression, and of course, get much-needed exercise. TDA’s instructors teach age-appropriate dance skills for each age level.

TDA has been offering professional dance training with a personal touch for over 30 years, instilling the love of dance to students under the creative direction of Miss Donnajean Kline and staffed by a group of highly-trained instructors. Their dance season starts in September. Please visit our website at www.thedanceacademybuckscounty.com for more information about programs and classes offered this fall.

Your teenager will be back-to-school ready after having a Teen Facial at Radiance Spa. This facial is customized for the skin conditions typical of the teenage years – oily skin, acne, rosacea, and blackheads. Some of this is due to hormonal changes but also due to lack of knowledge on home skin care. When you come in for a Teen Facial not only will you have an amazing facial treatment with customized products for your skin condition, but you will also receive a lesson on the right way to cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin to help alleviate the skin problems you may be experiencing. You will also receive some sample products to use at home to help with your skin routine.

Moms and Dads – now that the kids are back in school maybe you have some free time available for relaxation and stress relief at the spa. Our relaxing atmosphere and professional therapists will treat you to luxurious spa treatments including a full selection of massages, facials, body treatments, spa packages, spa parties, waxing and beauty enhancements.
