75th Anniversary

Menlo Park Academy of Dance celebrated 75 years servicing the local community with a free outdoor parking-lot party on Saturday September 10th, 2022.

Founded in 1947 by Rose Ann Sayler, Menlo Park Academy of Dance has been providing dance education to all ages, longer than any other similar business in Menlo Park or the surrounding communities. Its mission has not changed according to current owner Sarah Jane Measor, “to provide excellent training and instill a love and appreciation of dance in students of all ages and abilities”.

Attendees learned about the studio’s rich history, esteemed alumni, current classes and upcoming performances, and were treated to interactive games and activities for all ages, studio tours and give-aways.
