    You Should Dance!

    For 15 years, the North Shore Dance Center has been North Shore Chicago's premier dance center. We feature a full-service fine arts academy, offering training in dance and the related arts to students from preschool through adult. Embracing a philosophy of demonstrating both perfunctory classroom techniques and professional success, NSDC's staff includes advance-degreed instructors who complement their teaching careers with professional work in the dance and dramatic arts industries.

    Many of our current and former students represent North Shore Dance throughout the community, using the skills they have developed with us in roles in area community theater, high school and college acting troupes, professional theater, and national dance ensembles, including Joel Hall Dancers and even the Joffrey Ballet. But most importantly, North Shore Dance Center fosters a love of dance and the arts in even our youngest students.
