Central Indiana Academy of Dance, and Suzann DeLay, are celebrating over 25 years of service and training in the art of ballet for Carmel and the surrounding Indianapolis area. With this long term commitment comes a responsibility to our students and the community, both for superior teaching and in artistic growth. The Academy provides the care and attention that each dancer deserves by creating opportunities to participate in student showcases, full length ballets (in collaboration with Central Indiana Dance Ensemble), and other community programs.
