Desert Sun Performing Arts - Maricopa & Mesa

Desert Sun Performing Arts is Maricopa's premiere dance and performing arts school. We now have a second location in Mesa!  Under Artistic Director and Founder, Ceylan Gentilella, we provide Maricopa & Mesa dancers opportunities to broaden their horizons through technique, performance, and competition.

Our talented school instructors brings decades of professional experience from Musical Theatre, Television,  Plays, and many other productions.  DSPA dancers are successful because our instructors continually stress technique, discipline, and life values that have encouraged our students to be kind hearted and creative. 

DSPA has an array of programs designed to fit the student's individual needs.  We feature our Rising Stars program for ages 2 years thru 5 years, Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Clogging, Song & Dance, Musical Theatre, Jazz Acro, Stretch & Technique,  Inspire, a program for dance lovers with special needs, DSPA Competition Team, and Maricopa's only ballet company, The Pearls.  Classes are based on a well rounded dance curriculum. Our Competitive classes are permissible by auditions only.  Private lessons are available by appointment. 

We look forward to providing a quality dance education with a personal touch. We take pride in providing a nurturing atmosphere to enable students to reach their fullest potential and build their self-esteem while experiencing the true joy of dance.
