At the Upper School level, students can take the follow performance courses: Introduction to Dance, Dance Appreciation and Performance, or Dance Company. 

At the middle school level, Dance is a required course. All dance classes, with the exception of Dance for Fitness, perform in the Winter Performance in January and the Spring Performance in May.

The Academy of Notre Dame Dance Company is an auditioned group of students who practice and perform year round. The Dance Company course is designed for students who are serious about the art of dance. Auditions for the Dance Company are held each March, prior to student course selection.

2023 Fall Dance Festival

 

One of the main reasons I chose to attend ND was because of the dance and theatre programs. With so many opportunities to perform, it felt like I was attending a performing arts school. Today, I'm a senior at one of the top music schools in the US and have performed professionals around the country.
