Adult & Teen Dance Classes

At NorthEast Dance Center we believe dance is for everyone! Throughout the year we offer short-term and full-season (September-May) dance classes for teens and adults. We know life can be busy so all our teen and adult classes are "drop-in," where each class is paid for upon arrival with cash, credit card, or a drop-in punch card (discounted class rates). We offer optional performance opportunities as well, so come take class to learn a new skill, stay in shape, get back into dancing, or to get back on the stage!
 

 

Our Fall 2021 class schedule is below. All classes may be taken in person or via an online platform. Please let us know if you would like to take classes virtually and we will send you instructions/class links. Schedule is subject to change due to enrollment and staffing.

 

Online Registration is open year-round for Teen/Adult Classes Click here to register.
