The Inwood Performing Arts under the direction of Winston and Denna Smith are beginning their 39th season. Over the past 39 years they have established the IPAC as one of West Virginia’s premier training program for dancers. Young children learn in a nurturing atmosphere while developing skills that lay the foundation for a strong technique. This gradual process stimulates the development of confidence and discipline as well as cultivates a love for dance. Our program encourages the study of other contemporary dance forms including Jazz, Tap, Modern, Irish step dance and Ballroom. No matter which path our student’s may follow the study of dance will enhance their discipline for school, work, and everyday life. Over these 39 years IPAC students have been afforded over $600,000 in tuition scholarships, taught by over 300 internationally acclaimed teachers, performed in over 100 Nutcrackers, learned 65 new choreography works, 35 years of exams by the Royal Academy of Dancing, attended 30 Regional Dance America Southeast Ballet Festivals, traveled to 4 National Festivals in Montreal, Pittsburgh, Houston, and Phoenix, and accepted an invitation for an International Tour in China 2001. At the Inwood Performing Arts we have opportunities for every type of dancer so we hope you will choose to dance with us!
