"Dance is the only art in which we ourselves are the stuff of which it is made."
--Ted Shawn, Modern Dancer

NESA's Dance program focuses on creating a versatile dancer prepared to audition for college scholarships and professional work. Ballet technique, terminology and history are studied together with contemporary jazz, tap, modern and improvisational dance techniques. Students work with local, national and international choreographers, study audition techniques and perform in numerous NESA productions.  Highlighting the dancer's year are two dance concerts featuring numerous styles and pieces set by guest choreographers, dance majors and the NESA Dance faculty. Alumni of NESA's Dance program have received college dance scholarships, as well as jobs performing on cruise ships, theme parks and professional theatres including Broadway.
