About Us

Corky Bell School of Dance has three convenient locations in and around the city of Birmingham. All of our studios are professionally equipped with mirrors, ballet barres and reinforced wood dance floors. We have closed circuit TV so that you can watch your child. We have a staff of qualified teachers who believe that dance can be fun as well as educational.

We have the advantage of promoting students who begin with us on a pre-school or beginner level to a more advanced level, all within our studio. Two of our owners started dancing at Corky Bell at the age of 2, and the third started as a Corkette dancing under Corky Bell himself. The Corky Bell School of Dance is dedicated to fostering the student's imagination through the art of dance.

The Corky Bell School of Dance reflects interest and commitment to the community by performing throughout the year. Our students have performed at The Hoover Met, the Fairfield, Homewood, Helena, Hoover, Vestavia, Adamsville and Alabaster Christmas Parades, The Festival of Trees, Brookwood Christmas Show and numerous churches and retirement homes.

Our more advanced students are eligible to participate in tap and jazz competition teams.

The Corky Bell School of Dance represents over 65 years of dance tradition in the Birmingham Metro Area.

At all of our studios we offer all levels of instruction from beginner to advanced for ages 2 1/2 to adult.

Classes are available in tap, jazz, ballet, pointe, gymnastics, and creative movement.  The studios also offer a variety of special workshops in cheernastics, hip hop and baton. Private lessons are available in all subjects.

Our curriculum prepares students for dance team, majorette and cheerleading try-outs.
