Dance New Amsterdam believes in fostering joy of movement in children, guiding them in discovering and challenging their bodies while nurturing creative spirit. Kids @ DNA programming lets young dancers explore the excitement of different dance genres, and blends these skills with the narrative potential of storytelling through dance. Academic year & summer sessions explore and ground dancers in multiple dance styles, and include collaboration with the dancers to develop choreographic concepts. The end of each session culminates in a showcase which families and friends are welcome to attend. Get ready to come see your dancer shine!
