"What are the benefits for my dancer of joining Dance Company?

Dance Company prepares dancers to perform in college dance programs across the country. DDA Alumni dance in programs at University of Maryland College Park, Slippery Rock, Towson University Dance Department, and Point Park University. Dance Company prepares young people to be confident leaders in their community. They learn to collaborate, share ideas and develop team-building skills that carry over into the real world.

"What is the additional commitment level for my family?"

Most company dancers take between 2-4 classes per week in addition to a weekly rehearsal on Friday evenings, depending on the age of the dancer. We offer a Parent Zoom meeting in the Spring to answer questions about our Dance Company program including costs associated with being a part of Dance Company.
