About Destination Arts: Center for Performing Arts

Destination Arts opened in January 2014 by offering classes one-day per week at the local Crossfit Gym here in Oak Ridge under the name of “Tutu Tots”! Our full studio location was then opened in July 2014 in the shopping center where we are today. We have gone from a one-room studio space to now the current spaces where we have 3 dance studio rooms and 2 private music lesson rooms at our location in Oak Ridge, and one dance studio room and one private music lesson room at our Summerfield location. We pride ourselves in being your “One-Stop Destination for Performing Arts Education” in the Northwest Guilford area, welcoming students from Oak Ridge, Stokesdale, Colfax, Summerfield, Kernersville, Greensboro, High Point and the surrounding areas!

Destination Arts offers top quality instruction in a nurturing, family environment from professional teachers in the following styles:

  • Ballet
  • Tap
  • Jazz
  • Hip Hop
  • Acrobatics/Tumbling
  • Dance Teams
  • Voice Lessons

…and MORE! We also host birthday parties that are fit for a princess!

At Destination Arts we are dedicated to providing an engaging and inspiring environment for all students that includes:

  • Loving, nurturing, educated instructors, so you know your children are always in the best hands
  • Online registration and payment so you can get things done on your own schedule, without wasting the precious time you could be spending with your family
  • We sell tights, shoes, and the books you need for music lessons so you don’t have to waste time driving all around town for what you need for classes
  • Wifi in our lobby so you can pay bills, answer emails, and never feel disconnected if you decide to wait
  • Closed-Circuit cameras that feed to televisions in our lobby, as well as an integrated SpotTV system so you can view classes from an app on your phone while not in-studio
  • Convenient location, so that you can shop, eat, or just hang out during class time
  • Something for everyone, ages 18 months & up.

Destination Arts teachers are dedicated to praising success and cherishing progress.

Our job as educators is to instill confidence, pride and creativity so that your child can truly soar! Each week our student’s confidence blossoms, and their smiles show that a lifetime love of the performing arts has begun.


See your children bouncing with happiness and singing out with joy to the music!

“We moved to the area about 1 year ago and my daughter had to leave her dance class that she enjoyed. I finally walked through the door at DAC and haven’t regretted. My 3 year old loves the class on Saturday mornings and I love when she is happy and learning new things. Great atmosphere, great and friendly staff, and a great facility!”
