South Shore Dance Alliance is a not-for-profit entity dedicated to enhancing the educational and artistic experience of aspiring young dancers in the Northwest Indiana area. It was also founded on the premise that no aspiring dancer shall be denied access to training due to lack of financial resources.


We need your help to insure that the next generation of dedicated dancers can receive the quality training and performance opportunities they deserve.



Fall classes begin on Tuesday, September 8. Learn more about our dance classes and schedule, including new master classes and adult movement classes.
