CLASSES 

Hello Dance Families,

I know this is a scary time for many of our families, and the current situation is unprecedented. We ask that you remain calm during this time. We are following the situation as it changes, and making decisions as they arise. Please trust that we are making decisions as they are needed, for the safety of our dancers and their families.  We are here to help provide our dancers with a sense of normalcy, positivity and purpose in their day.

Our planned March Break shutdown is from March 14-March 22nd. This shutdown was planned from the beginning of the season, and you are not paying for these classes as the shutdown was taken into consideration when we set fees for the season.

The studio will remain CLOSED FROM March 23-September 13th, and classes will be held online instead during this time.  We are trying our best, as is everyone, to ensure that their families stay safe while ensuring minimal impact to our staff and students. We will keep you updated as things progress on when we are able to offer in studio classes again.

We appreciate your continued support during this difficult time to ensure our studio will be around when this pandemic is over and stronger than ever!

Keep Calm and Keep Dancing!

Amanda and the entire NJADS Staff

ACRO CLASSES
 

Acro is the combination of gymnastics and dance movement.  In Acro, we teach our students to dance into and out of Acro tricks, with minimal obvious “prep” before and after a trick. Despite being technically difficult to execute, acrobatic tricks are meant to blend in seamlessly with dance steps, providing an extra level of excitement and flair to dance choreography. This program teaches flexibility, agility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline & concentration. This class will focus on fundamental acrobatic technique.

My Online Dance Teacher!

Our dance studio has partnered with Dance Teacher Web to provide you this in-home practice resource!  MyOnlineDanceTeacher.com is an addition to your studio training that you can do at home at any time. This website does not replace your studio training, but will be a great alternative while your studio may be temporarily closed. This is intended to enhance your dance education experience and be a quick go-to, if you can't get to the studio. Remember, not all schools or teachers use the same teaching methods and terminology, so always check with your teachers if you have questions.

 

You must get permission from your parents to use this site. It is very important to warm-up properly and to dress in dance wear, just like you do at the studio. Never force, strain or push too hard in any exercise or lesson. Be sure you have enough room to perform your movements safely. For tap lessons, ask your parents to get you a piece of plywood (or other temporary surface) so that you will not damage the floors in your home.
