About Us

The Evolution of PDT

Our daughter was in dance as soon as she could walk. She was raised in a nationally competitive environment while Courtney taught at various studios meaning that we know the good, the bad, the stress, and the joys of the dance world. We knew we could do it better.

The conversations began about starting our own studio. As a family, we decided that once our daughter, Liza, graduated high school, the discussion would be revisited.  What came about was something wonderful.  High standards in both art and science as well as an incredible work ethic that fused both business and play ensured that Piccoli Dance Theatre became a reality in the fall of 2016.
