Primary Dance 


Ages 2 - 6 

DDC's Primary Dance program is designed especially for our precious little ones. We focus on fun and fundamentals! Dancers learn basic terminology, sharpen gross motor skills and most importantly, develop a love for music and self expression through movement. Preschool dance classes and kindergarten dance classes practice a work on a combo of 2 dance genres in each class. Choose a focus in Ballet/Tap or Hip Hop/Acrobatics. 

Ages 18 months-3 years are invited to bring a parent or caregiver and join our Dance With Me class. 

DDC Academy

Ages 6 -18

Each class meets once weekly. Students are invited to perform in our annual Spring Concert. We offer different levels of classes based on age, experience level, and technical ability.  We offer classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical/Contemporary, Hip Hop, and Acrobatics.

Ensemble Company

Ages 6 - 18 

Our Ensemble and Petite Companies are a gateway for dancers into the world of competitive dance. This program provides the opportunity to get a taste of what the commitment is like. Although it does require more time and financial commitment than recreational dance, this program is designed for students who are interested in competitive dance, but are not yet ready to make a heavy commitment. Ensemble and Petite Company dancers attend one regional competition each season and have the option to participate in some extra workshops and events.

All DDC Academy students are eligible to join. No audition required!

Pre-Professional Company & Competitive Dance

Ages 6 - 18 

We don't just provide professional dance training, we cultivate the next generation of dance artists. At DDC, we work to raise confident young people who will enrich the arts and our community. We believe a strong ballet foundation is essential for dancers to truly thrive. ​

DDC instructors help our students plan a personalized curriculum to develop their unique potential. Our program prepares dancers for the real world (dance or otherwise) by holding them to high expectations and providing encouragement every step of the way: from first performances to college applications and professional auditions.


DDC Company members compete and attend training events both regionally and nationally. They study a wide range of genres and dance anywhere from 3 to 15+ hours each week depending on their individual goals.


Placement in our Company program is by audition or instructor evaluation only.
