Testimonials from Camp

"'This is my first year coaching and coming to camp. I enjoyed the hip hop master class. Most of my girls have little to no dance experience and it was fun to see them try that.'" Coach CarrieFrontenac High School
"'This was our first time at NDA and I really like it! There was a strong focus about why we dance and all the positives it can bring out in our life. This was great for our new girls to hear to realize that they stick with something even if it is challenging for them. We loved the time with master instructors too!'" Coach AbbyFrontenac High School
"'In all the years I've used NDA for our camp needs, it is by far the best experience for myself and the dancers. Staff was excellent, curriculum was excellent, and we loved the schedule!'" Coach AlexisShawnee Mission East High School
