Nadia’s Performing Arts Centre, located in Bayside, Queens, NY, provides each child with a dance education that is grounded in high quality technique, an appreciation of the arts and a love for the pure joy of movement. As both a dancer and an educator, I have come to know that children posses many different styles of learning. Dance provides them with an avenue to learn through movement. Through dance education they will acquire skills in rhythm and patterning, in memorization and problem solving, spatial and body awareness, musicality, precision and coordination.
We provide all students with an environment that nurtures their self-esteem and encourages them to always strive for their best. We hope to cultivate each child’s special talents and creativity through the gift of dance.

It will be physically-based acting techniques from Alexander to Stanislavski and employ various theater exercises that promote skills that dancers need for performance.

This work blends all facets of performance to develop a more confident and expressive dancer.
