NSD Mission


Northwest School of Dance is dedicated to offering exceptional dance instruction. Our studio offers a safe, child friendly environment for students to explore dance. All classes are led by passionate, caring, adult instructors. It is our policy to train students in the discipline of dance, helping them reach their fullest potential, not only as a dancer, but as an individual as well. We pride ourselves on high quality, hands-on instruction in small group settings. This allows us to give each dancer more individualized attention which has been proven to increase the quality of the instruction, help the dancers excel more rapidly, greatly improve their technique and prevent injuries.
