Vision Statement

The Dance Program at Neighborhood Music School provides a nurturing environment that can accommodate the individual goals of dancers of all ages and enable them to reach their full artistic potential. Students in the NMS Dance Program are creative, open-minded and curious.  

Through a wide range of class offerings for different ages and skill levels, they increase  their kinesthetic awareness, their ability to analyze/articulate movement,  their confidence and their ability to work cooperatively and collaboratively with others - in addition to developing the physical skills needed to engage in dance.

The presentation/performance of work is an important progression in the study of dance: students do this through  informal classroom showings and  formal stage presentations. Additionally, NMS offers movement- and fitness-based classes with an artistic and creative focus for those who are seeking increased physical performance, fitness health and quality of life.
