Welcome! For over 35 years, we have had the privilege of nurturing and training students in Great Falls and its surrounding communities. As founder of The School of Theatrical Dance, I would like to welcome you, and invite you to join us for an unforgettable dance experience. We give careful attention to the mastery of each aspect of dance, so that at every level dance becomes the joyful experience it is meant to be. Our mission is to instill an appreciation for, and understanding of, the synthesis of poetry, music, raw physicality, and the power of being that is dance.

We look forward to sharing this with you!
Theresa D'Alessandro, Director

Christmas Eve at The Nutcracker Club

Established in 1980 as a Non-Profit 501c3,Tax Exempt Educational Institution, our program focuses on dance as a performing art, the harmony of music, movement, light, costume and message. I chose our name to reflect the diversity of our classes. These include group and private lessons for Children through Adults, in Ballet, Pointe, Pre-pointe, Jazz, Broadway, Hip Hop, Tap, and Modern Dance.  We also offer Aerobics, Zumba and MoveFit, as well as Traditional Pilates. In June, we present our annual Student Recital. In December, our Great Falls Dance Theater presents, "Christmas Eve at the Nutcracker Club", showcasing our Upper Level students.

Our faculty is dedicated to providing individualized, quality instruction. We are trained in classical as well as contemporary dance forms. This, as well as years of experience, enables us to nurture and carefully guide our students into the most satisfying pursuit.

Why Dance?
That question can be answered on many levels. It's fun, it's healthy... The obvious answers. But when you take a closer look, you find that dance is the only pursuit which is such a complex synthesis of mental and physical abilities. On the physical side are posture, fine and gross motor coordination, strength, grace, balance, flexibility, control, speed, power and endurance. On the mental side are the understanding of musical phrasing and nuance, familiarity with anatomy and muscle function, spatial perception, coordination and timing of movement with other moving bodies, dramatic expression and character, imagination, poise and confidence and the memorization of dance vocabulary. Because there are so many components to dance, the technique requires constant repetition, not only for neuromuscular coordination, but for strength, and injury prevention. 

We follow Fairfax County Public School emergency weather closings and National Holidays.
We are open on teacher workdays.

The School of Theatrical Dance is a 501 C3 Non profit, tax exempt educational institution,
