Through our program kids become so enchanted with dance they hardly realize they are learning skills of coordination, balance, imagination and creativity. Through playful warm ups, costumes, imaginative story dances, and improvisation, students excel and learn in a positive, nurturing environment while building self confidence and poise. As students of the program gain more training they have the opportunity to join our minis and junior performing groups or recreational classes where they can begin a slightly more challenging and structured curriculum. Often times children from other schools transfer to NCDC and their level of dance development is markedly lower than our students - a testament to our methods of teaching.
