Dance & Theater For Ages Three Through Adult!

Since 1994, North Shore Dance & Theater (formerly known as North Shore Dance & Drama) has been North Shore Chicago's premier dance and drama center. We feature a full-service fine arts academy, offering training in dance and the related arts to students from preschool through adult. Embracing a philosophy of both perfunctory classroom techniques and professional success, The North Shore Dance & Theater's staff includes advanced degreed instructors who complement their teaching careers with professional work in the dance and dramatic arts industries.

Many of our current and former students represent North Shore Dance & Theater throughout the community, using the skills they have developed with us in area community theater, high school and college acting troupes, professional theater and national dance ensembles, including Joel Hall Dancers and the Joffrey Ballet. But most importantly, North Shore Dance & Theater fosters a love of dance, drama and the arts in even our youngest students.
