Located in the Mount Venon section of Alexandria, Virginia, Terry's School of Dance & Gymnastics has been in business for over 40 years. Founded back in 1974 by Jack and Terry Peyton, the school opened in the basement of a townhouse with an enroolment of just five students. Within a year, the school relocated to a small storefront along Richmond Highway. In 1978 the school moved to a building on Cooper Street and in 1994, Terry's relocated to their present location in Woodlawn Shopping Center.
Terry's offers a wide range of classes for kids, teens, and young adults. Our team consist of highly qualified teachers with experience in tap, jazz, ballet pointe, musical theater, hip-hop, contemporary, pre-k combo, and gymnastics. We also have a competitive dance team, ShowGroup, that competes in local dance competitions, as well as a national competition.
