Our philosophy at Terry's has always been, "BRING IN THE LIGHTS!" and now we're adding to that with "THE  SHOW MUST GO ON!"  

We're very happy to announce our revised Summer schedule which provides a variety of instruction opportunities in safe classrooms and taught by instructors trained in the latest procedures to maximize a healthy learning environment. 

Please take a moment to look at the new procedures below -- all TSD families will be required to observe these policies so that we all may have a healthy and fun place to learn awesome dance and gymnastics!

For those new or to TSD, here's a bit of information to help you learn about us.  We're located in the Mount Vernon section of Alexandria, Virginia, Terry's School of Dance & Gymnastics is Northern Virginia's award-winning studio where kids have learned to dance and tumble for over 40 years.  Founded in 1974 by Jack and Terry Peyton, we first opened in the basement of a townhouse with an enrollment of just five students. Within a few short years, our school blossomed to its current location in the South Alexandria area in the Woodlawn Shopping Center.

Terry's offers a wide range of classes for kids, teens, and young adults. Our team consists 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, Show Group, that competes in local and national dance competitions. We offer after-school enrichment for Home Schoolers.

TSD is the proud home to ...
