OLDSMAR — With more than 25 years of education and dance training experience, Alicia Koger, recently decided to open up her own dance studio, Tampa Bay Dance Academy.

"I thought it was time to move on and open my own studio," Koger said.

Tampa Bay Dance Academy opened in September, and offers a variety of classes for children and adults. For ages 2 and up, a ballet/tap combo class is offered.

"Starting for school age kids, we have tap, ballet, jazz, tumble, and hip-hop," Koger said.

Classes such as lyrical, contemporary, and modern are offered for ages 10 and up.

Every Monday night, Tampa Bay Dance Academy hosts a different master teacher from Tampa Modern Dance Company. Drop-ins are welcome to attend the modern, contemporary or jazz class. Also, Tampa Bay Dance Academy partners with Tampa Bay Taps, and their elite performing company, Rhythm and Sole, is now housed at the new studio.

Tampa Bay Dance Academy is located in the Forest Lakes Plaza at 3705 Tampa Road, Unit 3. It is open Monday-Saturday, and class times and schedules are available at tampabaydanceacademy.com. For more information, call (813) 925-9346.
