Volume 19 2021-2022 Season
Congratulations to Hannah Evans on being chosen as the October Student of the Month-well deserved!
Visiting Week:

We would like to return to a tradition that parents and students enjoy this December-Visiting Week. However, we will need to make some adjustments to limit the number of people in the building at once. For families that are new to NHAPA since COVID, this is a week just before we break for the holidays in December where classes may be viewed-also known as "Peak Week".

This will take place the last full week of classes we have in December (13th-18th/Mon-Sat). Note: we will be open til 12/21 (closed 12/22-1/2). We will NOT be having a second Visiting week in April. In order to keep things manageable with # of people the following terms will be in effect:

1) All guests MUST be masked.
2) All non-company classes will be open with a limit of 2 guests.
3) Company classes will only be open on Tuesday and Saturdays and guests will be limited to 1/ class due to the size of many of the company classes.
Festival of Trees:

We have not heard back from the Sea Festival organizers about their staffing issue. We assume that our performance at The Festival of Trees will not be happening.
Dance Excellance
We are excited to announce that the extra performance we have been invited to do will be at Universal Studios/CityWalk on Thursday, April 14th. We will know more about that performance over the coming months. Will be a great day.

Dance Excellence Page
In an effort to keep things organized we have created a new page on the website to house the Dance Excellence information. Here is the link:

It lives under Company Corner-please take a look on what we have listed so far. We will continue to add details there as they are communicated to us.
Final Payments
As communicated this summer, the final installment for the trip will be due January 20th. This will include $800 pp plus the portion of the extra night ($175/number in room) as well as the additional fee for rooms with fewer than four people. They have supplied us with those rates below for you planning purposes.

We are happy to be participating in both the Hampton and Portsmouth Holiday Parades on December 4th.

Typically the Hampton Parade begins at 1pm & Portsmouth at 6pm. We will confirm exact drop off times and locations when we know more. Please plan to pick up at Citizens Bank in Hampton as well as Portsmouth at the conclusion of the parade.

Students will be dress warmly with outer layer being their SCDC pants and jacket. NHAPA will provide the hats and canes. You will also need:
  • a white turtle neck
  • white, red or green gloves
  • portable white lights operated by battery for the night parade

We have several students that haven't been a part of this event and will need to learn the march choreography. Our tri-captains will popping into the beginning of a Jumps & Turns Tuesday class in November to teach that choreography- Exact date is November 22nd (4:30 Jumps & Turns) and November 23rd (6:30 Jumps & Turns)

HELP??? Does any company parent have a truck with an open bed that would be willing to drive in front of the dancers through the parade route? If so, please email Alicia (
