  • Great camp for any level team. NDA offers beginner through Elite level material and training. – Megan
  • Bring a water bottle to refill at hydration stations and a sweat towel to wipe up your “glow”. Camp can be hard work, so be prepared! And always remember – #theworkisworthit – Kenzie

Testimonials from Camp

"'We are walking away from camp excited for our season ahead, knowing ourselves and our team better than we have before. Members of our team who have been dancing together for 4 years now are leaving with knowledge they never knew about those team members before. We have grown as leaders, both the team and myself and our assistant coach. We are leaving with skills, technique and dances we could not learn at any other camp. NDA, truly is the best camp a dance team can attend and we are very thankful for that.'" Coach GrahamNewton High School
"'As a coach, I loved the material that the coaches got out of our meetings. I also just love the atmosphere of NDA camp. Our head instructor made everyone feel so comfortable, and you could tell she not only cared about every team, but she put her heart and soul into everything NDA! I have been to 7 camps as a student, college student, and now coach, and the staff here was BY FAR one of the best I have come across!!'" Coach KelseyNorwalk High School
"'The camp curriculum was beyond great, and the NDA staff members were fantastic. My girls had a wonderful time learning from the best of the best and growing and bonding as a team!'" Coach SamanthaDavenport West High School
