Welcome to Artistic Dance Academy in Murrieta!

A very talented and select group of 16 students from Artistic Dance Academy have been invited to go to New York City this July 2014.  The students will be in “The Big Apple” for 8 days.  This will not only be a trip of a lifetime for some, but this is so much more.  They will learn, see and attend classes on a professional level. What better place to enhance the knowledge and skill in the art of dance.  It will be such a fantastic opportunity for those that can attend.

The purpose is for these extremely talented students to train with professionals at various facilities.  For instance, Broadway Dance Center, Steps on Broadway, Pulse on Tour, Luigi’s Dance Center and the Joffrey Ballet.  The exposure alone can change their lives.

We are asking you, locally owned Business, to support our locally trained students!  This is a tax write off for you, and a way to make a DREAM a possible reality!  This is not for profit request.

Our goal is still pretty far off, but I know we can reach it with your help.  We still need $32,000.00.  I know it seems like a lot, but the exposure, classes, and all the expenses for this will be needed to cover the cost for 16 people. We are confident we will achieve this goal by May 15th.  All 16 students need to be allowed to have this opportunity.  Every dollar counts!  Please click the "Donate" button or send donations to

About Us:
Our dance studio is a professional and comfortable environment focusing on the creativity and artistic beauty of dance without the pressure and extra fees that a competitive dance environment brings.

We are a smaller studio and not a revolving door. This allows us the opportunity to know each and every one of our students and their families thereby creating a warm, family-like atmosphere. We strive to help each individual dancer to reach his or her full potential to become the best artist possible while always focusing on technique and the foundation of dance.

Artistic Dance Academy's history...
Artistic Dance Academy opened in 1988 in Temecula under the direction of Brenda Mertz and Denise Renee. They started ADA with the highest quality training and a goal to create a professional, grounded, disciplined and respected studio.

Their dedication and love for dance showed and they were very respected by all in the Dance Community. Their direction and training led many of their students into professional jobs and careers including: Broadway National Tours, Holland America Cruise Line, Laker Girls, Commercials, music videos, theme parks, and Las Vegas shows.

In January, 2007, the ownership of the studio was transferred to Nicole Gradischek, a former student. She trained with Brenda and Denise from 1988 through 2002. Upon graduating high school, Nicole ventured out to dance for the world to see!

She was very pleased and honored to take the reigns of ADA. It has been her dream from childhood to own her own studio. Nicole looks forward to continuing to maintain the stellar reputation that ADA has enjoyed since its inception.
