Shelby County's only pre-professional dance program.
Teaching Dance in the Birmingham area for 44 years!

We will be closing Grebel Dance
on May 31, 2018, after 15 years of
serving Pelham and surrounding
communities. We would like to
express our deepest gratitude to
all those who have supported and
grown with us over the years. We
will continue to teach, however, at
the Pelham Rec Center, and hope
to have other venues around
Birmingham as well. As soon as
we get our schedules ready, we
will post them here. For now,
classes will continue through May
20, with our final Spring Dance
Performance at "home" in the
studio. Please be patient while we
prepare the studio to become a
stage with seating area for the
performance. We are planning to
remove the dividing wall and
open  it up to accommodate our
friends and family and a
performing space.

Tickets will be sold online at
tututix.com/GrebelDance. All
proceeds will go to help us
prepare our space.
