About this pro

Our academy is the ONLY dance school in Pittsburgh to offer dance instruction in both the Western and Eastern traditions.


Yanlai Wu, a world-acclaimed professional dancer who was hand-picked to attend the most prestigious dance academy in all of China. Ms. Wu studied ballet under masters of the renowned Bolshoi Ballet, and she went on to perform and choreograph throughout the globe.


Ms Wu has created a learning environment that extracts professional-caliber performances from all dancers – regardless of skills or experience.  Our students thrive in self confidence as they learn and appreciate the beauty of dance. Yanlai Dance Academy has produced national champions. 


Our academy’s annual performance has taken place in Byham Theater, Auguster Wilson center in the past.   


I love that we are creating more than dancers. We are creating young women and adults who set & achieve goals. Our students learn to grow and have confidence in their own abilities and then the courage to try new things. And together, they learn to love and appreciate the worlds of dance, art and culture. You can have a supportive, positive – and yet professional-grade – dance academy. I also love ballet and am passionate about choreographing new and colorful Asian dances.
