At Acton Boxborough Dance Center, we believe that dance has many benefits! Our littlest dancers learn motor skills and musicality, all while having a lot of fun, gaining confidence, and making friends! Dance classes also encourage classroom skills such as taking turns, following directions, and listening skills. Our classes are always taught safely by committed and qualified instructors, and class sizes are kept small to allow for individual attention. We are committed to using age appropriate music and costumes! The following classes are geared towards students in preschool and kindergarten:

ABDC Competition Teams are designed to create well-rounded dancers and performers that are leaders in the community. Dancers on our competition teams learn about teamwork, responsibility and dedication, in addition to challenging themselves in their technique classes. Our competition teams are open to grades 1-12, and students are required to take ballet, tap and jazz technique classes in addition to their competition team classes. Our dancers perform at community events throughout the year and we attend 4 competitions a year. Performances outside of competitions have included a holiday show performed at local nursing homes and the Beacon Santa Telethon, and at the annual ABRHS Cabaret Night. Our team members are dedicated to the study of dance, and also have a lot of fun and make lasting friendships.
