The NDA Mission

NDA seeks to instill in young people values that will enable them to compete, endure, and become successful in life: preparation, dedication, tenacity, perseverance, self-sacrifice, teamwork and leadership just to name a few. These are the values they will need to navigate successfully through life: from young adult to role model and leader. NDA strives to instill in young people not only dance skills through their participation in our camps and in our competitions, but life skills that will build excellent people!

In all that we do, we tirelessly attempt to be true to our creed, the nine statements of the beliefs we hold dear:

  1. Dance Team activities are bonding opportunities around which the entire group can unite.
  2. Team cohesion and performance is prized above individual talents and accomplishments.
  3. No single individual makes a team successful; teams become successful through the collective talents and best efforts of all their members.
  4. Excellence in the classroom ranks as first priority; ahead of excellence in the gym or in the studio.
  5. There is no substitute for hard work and preparation.
  6. Perseverance, resourcefulness, and dedication will overcome obstacles and setbacks.
  7. There are no closer friendships than those made through practicing, losing and winning together as a team.
  8. Small triumphs promote confidence, self-esteem, dedication and desire paving the way for future, larger triumphs.
  9. The performance arena is merely a practice area for the larger arena of life.
