Welcome to Fortitude for Dance

OUR MISSION is to encourage students to explore, grow and gain self worth through dance in a safe, positive, inclusive environment. Led by educated professionals, who love what they do! 

*We take pride in being a family run business and we are honored to have some many wonderful families at our school. Become a part of our dance family today!

WE OFFER a variety of dance classes for boys and girls ages 15 months to adult. Our class sizes are kept small to insure every child gets an enhanced learning experience. We have several levels to accommodate all dancers from beginner to advanced. Our Preschool Program is highly regarded with certified adult teachers who are nurturing & encouraging. We even have a Performance Team that is all inclusive and multi-level for any dancer who wants to be a part of it! 

OUR FACILITY is conveniently located on Commercial Street across from the Delta Dental Stadium home of the NH Fishercats. Our facility features two beautiful studios equipped with proper dance flooring, mirrors and ballet barres. We have a family friendly lobby for parents and siblings with closed circut TV's and viewing windows to watch your child dance. 

OUR PARTNERSHIP Want to dance with Kathryn McCormick, Teddy Forance and Nick Lazzarini? We are excited to announce that we are partnering with CLI Studios this year to give our students access to the dance industry's top choreographers.

Superstar and Best Dressed

Superstars program is a monthly award given to 2 students who have shown extraordinary talent, effort, and all around role model behavior. Students must have perfect attendance that month to be considered. Following a dress code teaches students structure, discipline and responsibilities. We like to applaud dancers who regularly follow our dress code! We announce both a best dressed and superstar  every month by announcing each winner in the newsletter and here on our site!

Best Dressed- May: Coralee S.               Superstar- May: Evelyn M.



Peer of the Year is one of our Spring Show awards. We give out three staple awards at our Show and Peer of the Year is one of them. At Fortitude for Dance we strive to provide the most positive learning environment. Along with that, we encourage the dancers to ALWAYS work together as a TEAM inside the classroom and out. Peer of the Year is a opportunity for peers to vote for someone THEY thought stood out throughout the year in a positive & encouraging way. Maybe they supported you, or helped you out, or maybe they always make you feel good to be at dance. The staff picked 3 students we felt exhibited these qualities. Please vote for your choice! 

The winner will be announced at the Spring Show.
