NADT DANCE ACADEMY AT BATESVILLE


Located at 157 Main Street in downtown Batesville.

The Batesville location offers the following curriculum:


Creative Movement (Level 1)-Students will be exposed to ballet basics and different types of movement accompanied by music. As well as dancing, students are engaged in 'sing-alongs' and usage of basic instruments. This is a great introductory class for youngsters to get accustomed to a classroom setting, participating in group activities, sharing with other students, and following instructions. In the combo class, we add rudimentary tumbling/gymnastics.


Ballet/Jazz/Lyrical/Contemporary (Level 2 thru Level 9)-Students will be exposed to different forms of dance during this session. Ballet is the foundation of all dance and it is extremely important to be well grounded in ballet to excel in other forms. Younger students will start with jazz, then lyrical will be added. In the highest levels, we add Contemporary.


Tap (Level 2-Level 9)-Students will be exposed to a curriculum of Tap dancing. Tap shoes are required so that dancers can execute the necessary rhythm and sounds of tap dancing.

Hip Hop-This class engages students in an increasingly popular form of jazz; Hip Hop. Widely viewed on TV programs, movies, and music videos, Hip Hop is sometimes known as street-dancing. We incorporate music of Hip Hop, Rap and Pop genres. We use only age appropriate music and moves!


Pointe/Ballet Technique-(Level 5 & up)--More advanced students will extend their ballet training to pointe (toe shoes). This is a ballet technique class for students that are training to wear, or are already dancing in pointe shoes. Pointe class consists of barre work as well as floor work. Strength training and conditioning is required to obtain the necessary muscle functions of dancing en pointe.


Ballroom-This is an older teen/adult dance course that teaches all of the social ballroom dances such as waltz, foxtrot, cha cha, swing, tango, samba, salsa, rumba, etc. No partner is required.


Competition-We offer choreography and intensive training for students that wish to compete in dance competitions.


Private Lessons-For those who want to have one-on-one training to advance at a faster and more technical rate, we offer private lessons.


North Arkansas Dance Theatre-Our performing troupe that performs at all kinds of functions and events free of charge. NADT costumes, lessons/rehearsals, jacket and shirts are FREE to members and paid for by the non-profit group.
