NAPA VALLEY DANCE CENTER
Napa Valley Dance Center, under the direction of Sandra Nugent, opened its doors in 1979 to bring the community and it’s children an understanding and appreciation of the Art of Dance. To date, dedicating.40 years of Performing Arts and Education to the Napa Valley, NVDC is known for maintaining a high level of technique while successfully integrating classical with the modern styles of today.
Our students are given the opportunity to attend fall and summer educational workshops and select day trips to watch other professionals in the industry.
Our students have performed throughout the Bay Area, Northern California and as far as Cancun, Mexico. Napa Valley Dance Center was invited to perform at the "International Dance Festival Cancun" which allowed our students the opportunity to be part of a cultural and educational experience. Students studied folkloric classes while performing throughout Cancun, showcasing their style and bringing Classical Dance to others. Another educational focus is giving back to the community. Students perform locally throughout the year gaining experience and confidence in their performance abilities while bringing the love of dance to our community.
Napa Valley Dance Center specializes in children, preparing them technically for auditions and careers in the entertainment industry. Our students have been accepted by both the American Ballet Theater and The Joffery Ballet programs. Great emphasis is placed on commitment, discipline, classical techniques and performing skills. Through class and performance children build not only a strong education, but confidence, self-esteem, body and athletic awareness. Students are given a lifetime of love and appreciation for music and the art of dance.
