SNHDT’s highly skilled faculty is committed to providing students with quality dance training in a caring and nurturing environment.  

While fostering each student’s technical and artistic skills, SNHDT also emphasizes an understanding of the inherent traditions that lie behind each dance form. In addition to providing professional dance training, the underlying goal of SNHDT is to support the philosophy that dance, much like any art form, is an important part of society’s cultural fabric and heritage.

Our Policies

Class Observation
Parents and guests are welcome to view their children’s classes at any time through the studio’s observation windows. Those who wish to observe in the classroom must receive permission from the instructor in advance. During Parent Peek Week, Parents are invited to watch classes at all levels so that they may become familiar with the school and the progression of instruction.

Parent/Teacher Conference
We encourage parents and students to call our studios any time they have questions or concerns. Consideration for both the parent and student is of utmost importance to our staff. For extended conferences with instructors, we encourage parents to call the school to arrange for a meeting. Please keep in mind that teachers are often scheduled to teach consecutive classes. The need to begin and end class on time does not always allow ample time for faculty to meet with parents in between classes. Scheduled conferences will allow for a more comfortable setting.

Class Cancellation Due to Bad Weather
During inclement weather, Southern New Hampshire Dance Theater (SNHDT) will post any cancellations on the radio station website Students and parents may also call our office at (603) 263-3803, where a message will be left on the school answering machine in the event that classes are canceled. When possible, makeup classes will be scheduled for those classes canceled during bad weather.

Have questions about our policies? Call us at 603-263-3803 for additional information!

Annual Year-End

At the end of the school year, Southern New Hampshire Dance Theater presents its annual Year-End Performances. All dancers attending regular classes at the Southern New Hampshire Dance Theater are invited to participate.

Traditionally, three separate age-based shows are presented; this allows us to keep the shows time-sensitive for families with little ones. The Pre-School Performance features our youngest performers ages 2 to 6. 

More specific information will be provided to registered students in January!
