  • I have been a member of the DCDC family for most of my life, as a student and now as a proud dance mom. It helped shape who I am today. The performances are truly magical.

  • My daughter has been dancing at DCDC for the past 7 years. She has become a skilled dancer, gained incredible poise, part of a winning competition team and has forged lifelong friendships. DCDC is truly her extended family. Many thanks to Kelly, Dawn, Erin, Caroline and to all her wonderful teachers.

  • My daughter is receiving so much more than a dance education at DCDC. She is learning many skills that will help her throughout her life, such as perseverance, dedication, teamwork & discipline. She has gained a beautiful confidence that I don’t think I would have been able to give her.
    Heather, Derwood
