About: Nunnbetter Dance Theatre was created by Leath Nunn in 1999. There is a both a school and a company here, and for those who are serious about pursuing a career in dance, they have a pre-professional program as well.
The pre-professional program is fairly new and it looks very well thought out, with instruction in specialty pointe work, nutrition, yoga and Pilates in addition to the ballet, jazz and modern classes…
The school offers a summer camp which is 4 weeks long each July. Classes at camp include things such as daily modern, ballet and jazz, as well as kids yoga and Pilates. I thought that the camp was unique in that at the end of their time together, the kids get together and participate in a professional music video which is produced just for them. (I wish I would have had that in my ballet camp as a kid!)
