Naperville Dance Academy

The mission of the Naperville Park District Dance Academy is to provide quality dance training to interested students of all ages – youth through adult. Students learn about dance and appreciation of the art in addition to steps and technique.

Beginning with our littlest dancers in mind and progressing to all levels of Ballet, Hip Hop, Modern, Jazz, Tap and more, our programs are carefully constructed to provide effective learning environments that are fun and professional, technical and creative, and taught by qualified, experienced instructors.

Our dance programs fall into two categories: seasonal programs and recital track. Seasonal programs typically are held once a week for several weeks and participants do not perform in the annual spring dance recital. However, parents are able to observe their student's progress at the last class of the session. Recital track programs begin in the fall and run for nine months. Participants enrolled in the recital track will perform in the annual spring recital. Specific dance attire is required in order to participate in the classes and students will receive a dance costume for the recital.
