About the instructors
The NORD/NOBA Center for Dance was founded in 1992 as a groundbreaking cultural and community partnership between the NORD and the New Orleans Ballet Association (NOBA) out of a need to make dance accessible to all school-age children. NORD/NOBA Center for Dance also offers classes for adults and seniors.
