About Our Academy

The Wake Forest Academy of Fine arts was started in 1991 on South White Street in Down Town Wake Forest. After being down town for 12 years the studio has since moved to a newer facility on Durham Road. Aimee Sellars and Alicia Rothman are now our new Artistic Directors. Aimee has been with the Academy since 2008 and in 2013 became Co-Owner and Assistant Director. In 2019 she became the Academy Director. Alicia has been an instructor with the Academy for 15 years before becoming Co-Director. The Wake Forest Academy is proud to be one of the premiere dance studios for dancers in the North Raleigh, Wake Forest, and Youngsville area! Your professional source for dance and music education.

The Wake Forest Academy of Fine Arts is dedicated to offering a technical curriculum in the performing arts while maintaining a fun and exciting atmosphere. Each student’s growth and development at every age and level is important to us. We strive to offer opportunities to dancers of all ages and skill levels. 

 The Academy places great importance on hiring staff that is highly qualified through college, professional, or personal experience in his or her area of expertise.

Our Facility
The Academy is a 5,000 sqft top of the line studio! There are 3 dance studios within our facility. Each studio has floor to ceiling mirrors and sprung floors. Sprung flooring helps to protect our dancers while dancing. The sprung floors act as shock absorbers when dancers jump and dance across the floor. The advanced flooring helps to prevent injuries and enhances the dancers performance!  Our studios are equipped with JVL audio systems for great music in every class.

The Academy has 2 bathrooms as well as 2 dressing rooms for our dancers and parents! There is a spacious lobby to wait in while you dancer is in class and is a great place for dancers to do home work in between classes!
