Peterborough Dance Theatre LLC welcomes you to come and try a dance class free ANYTIME to see whether PDT LLC is a good fit for you!
So whatever your goals are as a dancer, be it a Pre-Professional, Pre-Collegiate, or Recreational, the Peterborough Dance Theatre LLC has a dance class for you and has what it takes to help you achieve your goals!
*We are a "Non-Competition Dance Studio", a rarity in this business, meaning we do not participate in mass-marketed dance competitions for "trophies".
PDT LLC chooses rather to maintain its artistic integrity through the learning "process", choosing to devote more time spent on providing sound traditional dance technique training with the benefit of additional performance opportunity if desired (See "Cloutier & Co. Dance" Page), preventing dancer "burn out" and working toward goals of a long time career in dance if that is your desire. We see them on television all the time, along with every other type of competition programming. If dance competition is what you seek, that is your choice, but we recommend that Parents consider wisely the benefits vs. risks. Competition Dance Teams can require a high cost of additional time and money for costumes, entrance fees and travel such as hotel stays etc. beyond your regular tuition. And at what cost? Is it really worth it? Is it right for your child, your family? We recommend attending a dance competition before deciding what is right for you and your family.
And as a Parent, you can always count on us being "age appropriate" when it comes to both music and movement, whether it be in class or performance!
