On Your Feet
Ballet classes are offered from beginner level to advanced. Students are taught proper body alignment, body placement, barre and center floor work, along with across the floor combinations. All students are urged to study ballet, as it is the foundation of all other dance styles and facilitates further success in these disciplines.
To The Beat
Tap is a fun, popular class all for dancers!! Tap dancing is an energetic dance style where students learn rhythm, style, and technique through percussive footwork. Tap develops strong coordination, a sense of timing, and musicality. Students will advance to exploring rhythms through call and response, and repetition.
Jazz dance incorporates stylized dance moves and dynamic steps such as jumps, turns, and kicks. Jazz is a very high-energy class that teaches students essential dance skills including body coordination, flexibility, and self-expression. Classes include stretch and strengthening exercises, floor work & progressions.
Lyrical is a style of dance that uses the emotion and mood of the music to elicit movements from the dancers. It is one of the most expressive forms of dance. It requires excellent technique to perform, as the moves are often difficult and precise. Dancers will learn to convey the emotions of a song by making them aware of their facial expressions, and body movements
Make It Drop
Students will get a taste of several styles and be able to use basic steps to create explosive Hip Hop moves and find their own unique style as a Hip Hop dancer. Students learn a wide range of Hip Hop movements including popping and locking, krumping and emerging dance styles which will build strength, flexibility, endurance, and balance.
Sing & Dance It Out
Let's go to Broadway!! This class incorporates basic dance techniques, with the excitement of singing, acting, and dancing. Musical Theatre will enhance the stage presence of the dancers and contribute greatly to a well-rounded, multi-disciplined performer.
Sky is The Limit
Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements that are found in gymnastics. Acro is defined by its athletic character and its unique choreography which seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics.

My daughter started dancing here last year and loves it! Her skills and her passion have grown beyond what I could have imagined!
The instructors are fantastic, the choreography is better than anything I've ever seen.
Best of all- the dancers! No matter what age, they treat each other as family.
Ashley runs a great dance school!
NBDC has been my second home for 25 years and counting. I started as a student at 3 years old and grew up learning from some of the best teachers. NBDC has given me so much more than dance lessons, though- it helped me develop self-confidence, taught me how to work hard and practice time management, taught me how to be a good teammate, gave me a great group of friends, gave me a place to feel like I can be myself, and today, it has given me students of my own. NBDC is more than just a dance studio... it is a family and I am lucky to be part of it! It truly helped shape me into the person I am today.
