NDA operates on a 10 month fall season running from mid-August to mid-May annually, ending in a May recital performance. We normally begin fall session enrollment in the late Spring and continue enrollment through the first of the year. We also offer exciting summer camps, beginning in June. Class levels for our recreational program are primarily based on age (by October 1st) and years in the program. Ballet classes are designed to spend two years at each level. Pointe classes are based on teacher recommendation. The Company Program requires an audition (held in June). Each dance class will follow a syllabus specifically designed for their age/ability, learning all sorts of fun routines and dance moves throughout the year. During the holidays, we have an informal in-studio Holiday performance where we invite families to come and watch. We also offer two Family Weeks where family members are invited into class to see all the child is learning (and to maybe get a great video of their hard work!) Our calendar is full of great special events such as “Bring A Friend Week”, “Costume Week”, “Fun Bun Week”, “Spirit Week” and much much more! We like our dance classes to be full of learning and also full of FUN! Please read over some of the specific dance information listed below, as well as some of our FAQ and give us a call if you have any questions.
