NSSD Performance Companies

The North Shore School of Dance offers 3 Performance Company Programs to dedicated dancers who would like additional choreography and performing opportunities. Each group performs at various community venues, festivals, events, nursing homes, as well as hosting their own full productions twice a year.


The dancers develop close relationships and camaraderie through group outings to see professional dance productions, Big - Little, and holiday events. These dancers gain exposure to a variety of choreography in a passionate, constructive, nurturing environment while sharing their love of dance with their peers and community.
