Welcome to Inspirations Performing Arts Centre!

Having just completed our 20th season, Inspirations Performing Arts Centre (IPAC) strives to educate your children to the fullest in all forms of dance, music, gymnastics/acrobatics, and cheer.  Family owned and operated, we pride ourselves on bringing you only the highest quality of class curriculum and teachers. Our goal is to be more than just a performing arts school. The education we provide physically, and the self-esteem and confidence we provide mentally, help our students become the best they can be, not only in the area of performing arts, but in their everyday lives.

We welcome you to become part of the IPAC family. Your children deserve the best in performing arts education.  At Inspirations Performing Arts Centre, students take classes for many different reasons - fun, exercise or a professional career, and all are taught with the proper quality training. Although many of our students have gone on to professional careers, others have successfully completed college degrees, or have pursued other professional careers. Many of our past students say their successes stem from the life lessons we teach at IPAC, such as setting and achieving goals, hard work and commitment.

Joining our positive and fun family atmosphere is just the beginning. The result is seeing your child achieve and believe in themselves. We congratulate the parents who have taken this step in giving your child the best dance, music, and drama training on Long Island and look forward to many years of continued success. Inspirations...inspiring our youth toward higher goals.

Established on November 10, 1998, Inspirations Dance Academy (IDA) provided Long Island with a fresh, motivated new perspective in dance. As the end of our tenth season neared, Inspirations Dance Academy in Coram moved and expanded into a Performing Arts Centre in Selden. We also have studios in Shoreham, and Centereach! At each of our beautiful locations, we offer professionally instructed classes in dance, music, & cheerleading, as well as gymnastics/acrobatics lessons.

We offer dance in forms of ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, acro, stretch, pom, musical theatre, breakdance, and hip-hop; providing students a well-rounded curriculum. Our specialized mommy and me program, and our combination classes are a wonderful way to enrich young children, enhancing self-esteem and confidence in a creative, nurturing environment. Our dance program continues to build self-esteem and confidence of our dancers of all ages & levels.

We offer private music lessons with professional instructors  in voice & piano, and are always looking to expand our program to fit our families requests! Whether you are a beginner or a serious student looking for professional level classes, IPAC is sure to offer the perfect class to fulfill all of your performing arts dreams. 

Our More Than Just Great Cheer program teaches pom, musicality, rhythm, and stunt work. We also have tumble/ acrobatic arts for different levels, which focus on training our students in strength, flexibility, and tricks. These classes are based on level, & all of our students are evaluated by certified instructors to ensure proper placement.

ALL of our students are welcome to participate in our end of year recitals, with routines/pieces put together by our amazing instructors! We are extremely proud of all of our programs and accomplishments, because now we offer quality lessons in all of the performing arts that are affordable and close to home! Happy families is our #1 goal!

Summer of 2018, we are so excited to announce our Selden location will be moving to a NEW one-of-a-kind facility! Featuring 10,000 square feet of state of the art modern convenience and amenities, the studio will have a beautiful family lounge, cafe, quiet study room, 4 HUGE dance rooms with sprung flooring and viewing windows, one including a full stage experience using stage lighting, curtains, & wings, a specialty room for tumbling, gymnastics, aerial silks, etc., 2 music rooms for private lessons, and changing rooms for both our girls and boys!

Inspirations Performing Arts Centre has an active and extremely successful competition team, IPAC Dance Co. The team program is offered to our serious and dedicated students to further enhance their dance education. The team members are selected by audition only. Open auditions are held annually for our current IPAC families, and transfer students may call for a private audition. The students are judged based on technical ability, presentation, potential and attitude. The team performs and competes frequently, requiring time, commitment and complete dedication. IPAC Dance Co. has won numerous awards at both regional and national levels in all categories of competition. The members are recognized for their outstanding technical execution, exceptional performance skills, sportsmanship, and high-energy performances. The hard work and dedication of our competition team is truly commendable.
