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!


Current Class Offerings

In preparation for ending our school year with our annual Spring Recital in May, we are no longer able to accept students for the ’16-17 school year. However, we are currently welcoming registrations for our 2017 Summer Camps!

Additionally, if you’re just not sure whether dance is the right fit, we always invite you to come try a class for free to help you determine whether Summer Camps and/or our upcoming school year is right for your child before making any commitments! (And yes, this still applies even though we are not taking registrations! It is an excellent way to test the waters, commitment-free!)

Registration for our ’17-18 school year will begin in June 2017. Click below for information about our Summer Camps!

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us! We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have or help you take the next step! Visit our Contact Us page for contact info and hours.
