PSB Dance Academy was founded in 1989 by artistic director Karen Davies Thomas, and in 2006 Karen assumed ownership and responsibility as artistic principal and director of Interplay School of Dance, founded in 1983 by Anna McCowan Johnson. Recently, Karen
joined the two sister schools as PSB&Interplay Dance Academy. Both schools offer pre-professional and intensive classes in classical ballet (Cecchetti and Royal Academy of Dancing syllabus), performance opportunities with the Profile&Interplay Dance Company
and Competitive Division, and a full range of recreational classes for ages 3 to adult in ballet, modern, jazz, tap, acro, contemporary, musical theatre, and repertoire.
PSB & Interplay’s artistic dance instructors are highly qualified and among the finest from diverse professional backgrounds, including graduates of teaching programs from the National Ballet School, Ryerson University, and York University.
