Students Energize The Smith Center Stage

One of our favorite highlights each year is when our GO-MOVE-DANCE!!! students perform on stage at The Smith Center in the Future Dance Spring Concert. They absolutely fill the building with their energy, enthusiasm and love of dance. Here’s a look back at the 2015 concert, because we can never get enough of these smiling faces.

NBT’s GO-MOVE-DANCE!!! program is a residency program that coincides with the school year offering students 28 weeks of free, in-school dance instruction to 16 underserved Clark County schools. Students learn a variety of dance disciplines, from ballet to jazz to hip-hop. Classes are taught by qualified Future Dance Teaching Artists, who follow a detailed curriculum.

Dance Discovery Camp Goes Virtual

Log in and Dance On! Not even a pandemic could derail the desire of our students to dance this summer, so NBT’s annual Dance Discovery Camp went virtual. Over 40 Dance Discovery Scholars participated in the two week camp which included ballet, contemporary, jazz, hip-hop and dance history.

Led by instructors Terane Comito, Erica Kirby and Jamie Grover Dance Discovery Camp enables students to continue their dance education through the summer, where they gain additional dance experience. Participating students are part of NBT’s Dance Discovery program, providing a scholarship track for dancers chosen from the GO-MOVE-DANCE!!! Program who show promise based on talent, facility, and commitment.

Enjoy this look back at a fun new way we made dance a part of summer for these great kids.
