Southern New Hampshire Dance Theater (SNHDT), now regarded as the area’s finest dance school, was founded in September of 1996 by artistic director Patricia Lavoie, a Bedford, NH native. SNHDT’s highly skilled faculty provides quality training and a sound education in dance as a performing art. While nurturing the development of each student’s technical and artistic skills, we also emphasize an understanding of the inherent traditions that lie behind each dance form. It is our goal to support the philosophy that dance, much like any art form, is an important part of our society’s cultural fabric and heritage. All classes are taught by adults and all curriculums are age- and ability-appropriate.
