Primary Program
Ages 5-6

About the Program:

NESD’s Primary students will learn age-appropriate steps and positions in a highly encouraging, structured and motivational environment. Classes in Ballet, Tap & Hip Hop are offered to this level allowing students to experience a variety of styles, movement qualities & dynamics. 


Sanitizing Schedule:

Please see the full “Studio Schedule” for sanitizing times. Certain class times were shifted by 5-10 minutes after class/level changes to ensure a safe and clean environment. The length of each class is still the same but be sure to check if your class begins/ends 5-10 minutes later while cleaning procedures are still of the utmost importance. The list of classes below and the registration schedule lists the class times as they will be when things go back to normal. Until further notice, please follow the “studio Schedule!”
