I have read the other reviews on this page and I just want to say, that this studio is NOT ballet focused!! THEY HAVE NO IDEA how to teach ballet, I have taken my child to a professional ballet teacher (more than one) to have her looked at and they were appalled at how bad her technique is she has so many bad habits and in dance it is really hard to re train a dancers bad habits. We spent thousands of dollars on private lessons at northland to be told that we need to ask for our money back from more than one professional teacher. The atmosphere is something I would never want my child subjected too, the parents (not all of them) are awful they talk bad about people and kids behind other peoples backs and the office staff lets some of the parents run the studio.. The drama that goes on at this studio is worse than the TV show DANCEMOMS. They preach that they are a family studio and love the children and its more than just about dance that they are trying to teach there but in reality they have favorites and the rest of the kids don't matter. I would not recommend this studio at all not for competition or Rec.. I wish someone would have warned us! If you are looking for people to care about your children and help them be the best dancer they can be I would HIGHLY suggest Larkin dance Studio or Summit dance shoppe.

While the quality of technique training is very good at this school when I attended, I found the atmosphere to be highly competitive within its own community. There was also an unnecessary amount of pressure placed on students about their "health" (i.e. how thin they were). There are a lot of very talented students at this school, but they are not the best. If you are looking for the best technique training, I'd suggest looking at Larkin. I never went to Larkin, so you can trust my viewpoint to be unbiased. If you are looking for a fun and supportive atmosphere, try somewhere else.

NSOD gave me a good foundation for my dance education. Their focus is definitely on ballet (where it should be) and they have several teachers for different styles and different talent levels. Prices are high but, you get a dance education that is worth it.

This was a wonderful place to start your kids off dancing. I loved attending classes there when I was young. The groups are fun and they have great coreography. However once you get older, the demand from teens gets tougher and tougher, while becoming more and more time comsuming. Good place for beginners to have fun.
