Steeple Arts Academy of Dance is not “just another dancing school”, but a private school stressing classic training in Ballet, Jazz, Tap and more. Students are carefully placed in classes according to age and advancement. Founded in 1935, by Lola Mae Jones and carried on by her daughter, Lola Mae Coates, Steeple Arts grew into an icon of the Mountain Brook Villages.
