Recreational Classes (Ages 6-18)

Recreational dance classes at NDA include something for everyone! Our recreational classes are a great place for our young, beginning dancers to start, no matter their interest – and an equally great place for older dancers to refine their individual dance technique and get great exercise. We offer many genres and levels of dance classes, and our teaching staff is dedicated to identifying each student’s individual strengths, weaknesses and goals while helping them achieve their highest potential, in and out of the classroom!

*Class offerings listed below are for the ’18-19 school year.
