The Hamilton Wenham School of Dance, since 1991, has been committed to offering diverse and quality dance education and instruction for students from all over the North shore.  Our philosophy is to teach correct technique with emphasis on artistry and expression rather than competition. Whether a student simply enjoys dancing recreationally or is interested in a more professional track, our goal is to provide a nurturing, positive, learning atmosphere where all students feel inclusive, creative and challenged.  We carefully place students in the class levels where they will progress with the proper technique, gain knowledge of bringing choreography to life, find insight to self-expression, feel supported by and be supportive of fellow students with fairness, friendship, respect and fun.

The Hamilton Wenham School of Dance is a non-competition school.  Our annual 10 month HWSD dance program runs the school year from September to June for ages 3.5 thru grade 12.  Our Creative Movement program has family viewing days in the studio throughout the year. Performances are available for students K-12 including studio demonstrations, workshops and our year end RECITAL in June.  Our advance students are also eligible to participate in our resident dance company, ALLEGRO DANCE ENSEMBLE established in 2002.  The ALLEGRO company performs for FREE as an enrichment program and community service for Museums, Libraries, Schools, Festivals, Fundraisers and Community events.  Please email [email protected] for interest in a ALLEGRO DANCE ENSEMBLE performance.   HWSD offers varied Adult Programs and Specialty Classes throughout the year as well as Private and Semi Private Classes, Birthday Parties and Lessons in Specialty Dances for events.  The Hamilton Wenham School of Dance also offers Summer Programs from early July to mid-August for ages 4-Adult: Art and Dance with our neighbors ARTCIE Studio: Dance Workshops and our Evening Class Card Program in all genres of dance. 

The Hamilton Wenham School of Dance is a place where students, family and faculty are like a family. A place where our wonderful students Learn to Love Dance for a Lifetime.
