About Us

The Steffi Nossen School of Dance has a class for every age, ability and interest.

Founded as a modern dance school in 1937 by dance legend Steffi Nossen, the Steffi Nossen School of Dance (SNSD) offers the highest quality, developmentally appropriate dance instruction and performance opportunities for all ages and abilities. From pre-schoolers through pre-professionals, students have the opportunity to learn a range of dance forms including modern, ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, yoga and composition, workshops and short courses in world dance forms. The diverse and cross-cultural menu of offerings reflects our philosophy that dance is universal and a unique form of education that develops the body, mind, spirit and character. Our engaging conservatory style classes challenge each student to strive for personal excellence in a supportive, inclusive, non-competitive environment. Our educationally sound, sequential curriculum fosters technical growth and exploration through dance.

Students are exposed to the complete performance experience.

SNSD students are also exposed to the complete performance experience; their technical and artistic development includes participating in all aspects of bringing a new piece to life, from the creation of choreography to costuming and staging. Classes nurture individual creativity and emphasize technique and proper body alignment. Our experienced faculty fosters the joy of dance along with its inherent discipline, training professionals and recreational dancers alike with equal encouragement and enthusiasm. In addition to our modern dance core curriculum, we also offer ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, world dance forms, yoga, and composition, as well as classes for those with special needs at our dance studio locations in White Plains and Chappaqua, NY.
