NADT DANCE ACADEMY AT IZARD COUNTY


Located on School St. in Melbourne, AR


The Izard County 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.


Ballet/Tap/Jazz (Level 2 thru Level 4)-Students will be exposed to three 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. Jazz will increase their expression of movement, coordination and musicality. Tap will enhance their rhythm and timing. Tap is danced every class for an allotted amount of time. Ballet and Jazz are alternated weekly.


Level 5/6 Combo-These students are exposed to multiple areas of dance including Ballet, Tap, Jazz, and Hip Hop. A rotation of this curriculum will result in very well rounded dancers with an appreciation for all forms of dance. Even though this level is extensive, beginners are welcome! We have experience maintaining a balance between beginner and advanced students in this age range.


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.
