Fernando Bujones, the teachers, staff and I all enjoyed working with this group of students because of their wonderful work ethic and positive attitude. These attributes are the hardest to teach. Congratulations on a job well done!"

Schools of dance are only as good as the teachers they have on their faculty because it is the individual teacher who develops and trains each dance student. Lisa Gold’s North Shore School of Dance has an unparalleled reputation on the Shore for providing its students with the finest teachers available in the Chicago area in all forms of dance, many of whom are associated with our most prestigious dance companies. NSSD maintains its rich lineage of dance education that spans nearly 35 years of outstanding service to the community through its training of young aspiring dance students on the North Shore. It is a school of high integrity and professionalism."

Your dedication to 'classic' dance is refreshing and so appropriate. We loved every minute of it and so did our kids. All in all we are thrilled with your programs and instructors. Thanks so much for all your hard work. Your personal investment is apparent."

We love NSSD! All three of my kids dance there and they can't get enough! They love the teachers and I appreciate how happy my kids are after every class! The teachers are all so kind and I always know that everyone goes out of their way to help with any child as well as solving problems that any family might have! We love you guys!"
Grace, Serina & Rosie (Students)
Our daughter has taken dance at NSSD since she was four years old. The instructors at NSSD have taught her how to be a strong, poised and disciplined dancer, while at the same time fostering her love of dance. Each year, she is excited to enroll in more dance classes in order to take her dancing to the next level."
