OUR MISSION
Our MISSION is to create a space that gives your child the opportunity to receive quality dance education, develop confidence & self-discipline, build leadership skills, learn the importance of teamwork, boost creativity, and create life-long friendships with other goal-oriented peers.  Each class is smaller-sized and structured in a way that ensures your child will get the individualized attention needed to excel in dance.  We facilitate positive attitudes and forward-moving thinking with: Weekly Goal Binders, Teacher-Assistant Programs, Student Choreography Opportunities, ALWAYS AGE-APPROPRIATE Costumes, Studio Bonding Activities, and Leadership Opportunities.  At New World Dance, your child can choose from intensive dance programs to less-intensive dance programs with special options that allow students to be able to participate in multiple extracurricular activities and still be able to dance.  It's your choice.  We aim to provide your child with the best possible learning experience.  


OUR OWN IN-HOUSE PROFESSIONAL MEDIA & PRODUCTION TEAM
New World Dance has its own in-house professional media production team, GT5 Productions, specializing in videography, cinematography, video editing, and music editing, which allows us to be able to professionally film our classes/choreography and edit our own music.  This means that our dancers have access to professional videos to add to their Dance Reels.  Very few studios provide this opportunity.  Plus, our music and audio is always professionally mixed and edited.

 

THE BENEFITS OF HAVING A NEW ADMINISTRATOR
New World Dance has been under new ownership as of 2016.  We have the same talented teachers, the same creative minds...now headed by new leadership in the administrative dept.  As a result, all administrative and management operations are now handled and organized by a department that is separate from our creative department.  This allows our instructors and creative directors more time to focus solely on the art of dance and teaching your children, which has benefited our students in so many ways.  Our new owner/administrator, Marsha, and her front office team are fully dedicated to providing good communication, personalized service, organization, and professionalism.  Caring Owners + Caring Instructors = Happy Dance Families!

 

WE ARE AN EDUCATED STUDIO
In order to be able to teach children, instructors need more than just a dance curriculum.  Instructors need to also understand the fundamentals of overall child development (i.e., motor, behavioral, speech, social, and emotional development).  Our NWD instructors are consistently trained and guided every week by a credentialed and licensed specialist to ensure that they are utilizing developmentally-appropriate strategies, facilitative techniques, and best practices for working with children of all ages and backgrounds.  

 

PROGRAMS FOR HOMESCHOOLED/CHARTER SCHOOL STUDENTS
New World Dance is an approved School Vendor with livescanned & background-checked instructors.  If your child is homeschooled, contact us for our vendor info.

 

SPRUNG DANCE FLOORS
We have professionally-installed sprung hardwood dance floors, which is very important for preventing dancer injury. 

 

EVENT CHOREOGRAPHY SERVICES
We offer private choreography services for weddings & private events (for all skills levels from beginner to professional).  Amaze, surprise, and entertain your guests with a professionally choreographed routine!  We've choreographed dozens of fun routines over the years for: wedding entourage, bride & groom, father-daughter, birthday, anniversary, and corporate events.  Contact us for video samples.

Why Dance?

Since the beginning of time, song and movement have brought people together. Dance is a creative outlet that allows us to express ourselves in a way no other outlet can, bringing people together no matter where they are from, what they look like, or what they believe in.  It's also a method of relaxation, healing, self-expression and so much more.  

Giving your child a chance to dance helps to improve:

  • Motor Development: balance, coordination, fine motor skills, flexibility, core strength, muscle memory, posture.

  • Social/Pragmatic Development: social skills, teamwork, self-confidence, healthy relationships with other goal-oriented kids.  

  • Cognitive development: problem-solving skills, memory, attention/focus.

  • Essential Life Skills: perseverance, self-discipline, work ethic, goal development, creativity.

  • Emotional Health:  increases serotonin levels, improves mood, reduces stress levels.

  • Physical Fitness: exercise, heart-healthy activity, proper nutrition.

All in all, it's is an effective and beneficial platform for self-expression and overall emotional and physical well-being, providing us with a body-based connection to our surroundings. Giving your children a chance to dance is an amazing gift that grants them the opportunity to achieve goals and develop skills they can be proud of.
