Dancing is the loftiest, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is not mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself. – Havelock Ellis

Located in historic downtown Aiken, the Crosby-Miller School of Dance has been an Aiken tradition for over 50 years. First founded by Carl Crosby in 1960, the school has the distinction of being the first school of dance in Aiken. Mr. Crosby later founded the Aiken Civic Ballet in 1971. The Crosby tradition continues today with Director Diane Toole Miller, a former Crosby student and Aiken Civic Ballet member.

Many of our dancers have been selected to attend the prestigious South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts in Dance. Some of these dancers are: Betty Skeen, Robert Poe, John Doucet, Amanda Key (2010), Julia Wofford (2011), and Sydney Maddox (2015).

Our experienced professional staff is committed to teaching with care given to the development of self- confidence, imagination, and creativity. 

Our mission is to foster the art of dance in a nurturing, enriching, and pre-professional environment that serves two important goals: 

  1. the development of the dancer through proper technique, and 
  2. the development of the dancer as a complete artist, from the youngest to the most advanced dancers.
