We pride ourselves in that we strive for our dancers to be well rounded. Our program offers a perfect fusion of traditional technical training and cutting edge styles and choreography. Because, much like our Childrens Dance Program, our classes are not solely focused on routines. Class work is paramount in our program to properly train students. Our class sizes are limited to afford students plenty of space to move freely and without inhibition, as well as to provide instructors and class assistants the opportunity to grant students ample one on one attention.
Our preschool program features the Twinkle Star Dance™ program , which is a nationally recognized, award winning curriculum developed to give our young dancers a great foundation with lots of fun! Our school age program includes classes in Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, and Acro. Our goal is to create a friendly, warm and supportive atmosphere in which our students can learn the joys of dance and movement. Our experienced faculty is committed to building self-esteem and confidence, while encouraging our students to achieve their personal best.
We offer competitive, and non-competitive performing opportunities. Our Spring Performance is an exciting and fun experience for all our students. While, our competitive company has ample opportunities to compete, perform locally, travel, and participate in conventions that bring the most sought after teachers and choreographers of the nation. Additionally, our performance group performs at local events, nursing homes, charity events, parades, etc.
Our purpose is to provide quality, affordable, and professional dance instruction. This allows our students to fall in love with the art of dance, to instill in our students a love and appreciation for dance and the dedication that it requires, and to provide an atmosphere that is FAMILY FRIENDLY and age appropriate. We provide a place where families can feel comfortable entrusting their children to our instructors, instructors who will teach them with patience and professionalism, that will pass on to them their love and passion for the art of dance, instructors that will give extra attention to the age appropriateness of the choreography taught and the selection of music choices for in class use, and for performance. We offer AFFORDABLE TUITION rates, that include costumes. We always make sure our families are up to date and aware of all policies and procedures so that they can feel secure and guided throughout their child’s dance instruction.
Dance Theatre of New Jersey was created to share the love for dance. Dance is a form of art, recreation and physical activity which requires technical training but also allows you to show your creativity, personality and emotions. Dance is meant to be fun, it's meant to challenge you enough that you're working towards goals, but the environment is a place where you enjoy yourself and the people with which you dance.
