PCDA Potpourri

Welcome to the PCDA Home Page!
The Panama City Dance Academy (formerly the Strausbaugh Dance Centre) is located in beautiful Panama City, Florida, and is home to some of the finest dancers and instructors in the Southeast!
We offer instruction in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Pointe, Lyrical, Modern, Hip-Hop, Technique, Stretch & Tone, Tumbling, Cheer Dance and Pom for every level of dancer. We also have K-Dance classes for tiny dancers ages 3-5.
We are the proud home of the PCDA Jazz Company which is a group of dancers that competes and performs regionally and nationally throughout the year. Placement in the Company is by audition only, and it is a wonderful opportunity for the more serious dancer to pursue their art.

Passing The Torch
After an incredible 34 year career in dance, Barbara Strausbaugh retired in May 2003 and left her studio in the very capable hands of Michelle Williams. In June 2003, The Strausbaugh Dance Centre became Panama City Dance Academy. Here's to another 34 years plus!
