Why Choose NSDA?

Our Mission

At North Shore Dance Academy, we’re more than just a dance studio. We pride ourselves on providing top-notch dance education in a nurturing and motivating environment. Our goal is to enrich the lives of our students, fostering growth not only as dancers but as well-rounded individuals. We aim to create a “feels like home” experience for the entire family that starts the first time they walk through the doors.

Comprehensive Parent Involvement: We understand the importance of parental involvement in a child’s dance journey. That’s why all six of our dance classrooms are equipped with television observation, allowing parents to observe every class throughout the year. Watch your child’s progress and be part of their dance education journey week by week. We know that children thrive most when parents are included, informed and part of the process.

Convenient Class Options: With six classrooms operating every instructional day, NSDA makes it easy for families with multiple children to coordinate class schedules. Registering siblings for classes at the same time can simplify your carpool logistics. Our September through June schedule, calendar of the year and recital cast splits are available upon registration. We value your time and your commitment to our program.

Dedicated and Current Staff: Our instructors are committed to staying ahead of the curve. They continuously enhance their dance education by attending conferences, conventions, and maintaining memberships in teaching organizations. This dedication ensures your child receives the most current and effective dance training available.

Holistic Growth: At NSDA, we care deeply about your child’s development, both as a dancer and as a person. Many of our students begin their dance journey in early childhood and continue through high school and beyond. In addition to dance technique, our students learn invaluable life skills such as time management, creativity, resilience, teamwork, dedication, goal-setting, and self-care—skills that serve them well into adulthood.

Ethical Standards and Accountability: As proud members of the International Dance Entrepreneurs Association, NSDA upholds rigorous standards of customer service and respect. We prioritize age-appropriate movement, music, and costuming, ensuring a safe and positive experience for all dancers. Our commitment to integrity in business practices and transparent communication means you can trust us with your child’s dance education.

Dance education is our passion, but striving to create a welcoming positive, inclusive and supportive environment for your entire family is equally important to us. We encourage lifelong friendships within our studio walls and are committed to being role models for our students. Your partnership in maintaining a positive atmosphere is appreciated as we nurture both talented dancers and extraordinary individuals. Your family’s experience matters to us, and we’re dedicated to providing an atmosphere where every dancer can feel comfortable to be themselves and thrive.
