NMBC Class Levels
Children Ages 3-7 Classes
Designed for children ages 3 to 7, our Creative Movement, Pre-Ballet and Pre-Tap classes offer an introduction to the world of dance. Students will learn foundational dance vocabulary, improve body coordination and awareness, gain a basic sense of musicality, and explore their individual creativity, all in a structured yet fun environment. From absolute beginners to students with previous experience, all are welcome! Tuition rates begin at $50 – $65/month for one class per week.
Beginner Level 1 Classes
Geared towards students aged 7.5 and up, our Level 1 beginner program includes classes in Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Tap, and Hip-Hop. Students without previous dance experience are welcome and will learn the foundational movement vocabulary, musicality, and expression required for each particular style. Students with previous experience will continue to expand on and improve their technique and expression. Tuition rates begin at $65/month for one class per week.
Intermediate Level 2 & 3 Classes
Aspiring dancers generally aged 10 and up will continue to grow in our Level 2 and Level 3 classes. Classes include Ballet, Pre-Pointe, Beginning Pointe, Jazz, Lyrical, Tap, Hip-Hop, and Stretch & Strengthen. We encourage students to take a variety of styles for a well-rounded dance experience. Students aspiring towards dancing en pointe should expect at least one year in Pre-Pointe, are assessed regularly for progress and pointe readiness, and progress to starting pointe work only after careful consideration and recommendation from NMBC faculty. Tuition rates begin at $65-$90/month for one class per week.
Advanced Level 4 & 5 Classes
Advanced students aged 14 and up in Level 4 and Level 5 will continue to hone their technical ability and develop their personal artistry through a range of classes and other opportunities. Whether our students aspire toward a career in dance or not, the skills, discipline, and creativity reinforced through dance training will carry on throughout their lives. Advanced classes include Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Lyrical, Tap, Hip-Hop, Stretch & Strengthen, Open Ballet, and Open Styles. Tuition rates begin at $65-$90/month for one class per week.
Whether you danced as a child or have never stepped into a dance studio, it’s never too late to join one of our adult classes. From absolute beginners to advanced adult students, we will help guide and challenge you based on your personal dance background and goals. Tuition rates begin at $65-$90/month for one class per week.
Our Contract Dancers train and rehearse throughout the week to prepare for NMBC’s professional productions such as The Nutcracker Ballet. Advanced and professional level dancers in the community are welcome to join Company Class with approval from the Artistic Director.
