Nolte Academy

Where artists grow.

Affect Dance Company

If you're a competitive dancer, you know the long hours spent perfecting pieces, the highs and lows of competition, and lasting friendships you forge with teammates.  It's an experience that lasts a lifetime! Our Affect Dance Company -- one of the top-ranked studios in the Midwest -- has grown to over 100 members who performed 98 pieces in 2012!

Affect travels to each Spring to Spotlight, Applause, BRAVO! and other respected FDC events where our dancers earn multiple Platinum and "Best of Category" awards. In 2011, Affect dancers were invited to the World Championship competition in Dallas. Over 60 Nolte dancers have gone on to compete at Nationals, and 20 earned scholarships and coveted invitations to perform. But we're not ready to rest on our laurels. We need you!

We welcome all talented dancers to audition for Affect and join us in our quest for Platinum! In addition to our competitive season, you can join in community events like our UI Homecoming parade float, UI Basketball Halftime Show, Affect Pool Party, Sleepovers and more! Interested? Call 319-688-9289.
