Welcome to Theatre Next Door & Dancelife Academy. Theatre Next Door & Dancelife Academy strives to encourage the performing arts and to foster a spirit of creativity in the life of each student, one that nurtures the ideals of commitment, fun, and expression. As a performing arts and dance education studio, we offer a selection of dance and theatre classes.  We take pride in the encouragement of the "triple-threat" (acting/dancing/singing) so that students can be introduced to and trained in each aspect of the performing arts.

Miss Alissa


Congratulations to our very own Alissa Dorey for being accepted into Sacred Heart University! She has received a scholarship for dance and has made the dance team and performance troupe. She will graduate from Hanover Park High school with high honors in June 2020. She has been dancing, acting and singing  with Theatre Next  Door since she was five years old, winning many awards and accomplishments in the theatre and dance! She has been teaching at TND for the past 3 years. She also is an award winning cheerleader and helps run her moms company, Rising Sun Cheer. 


We wish her so much success and will miss her very much! We can't wait to follow her academic and dance career in college! She has been a part of TND since the very first day and while it won't be the same without her she will ALWAYS have a home here!
