Dance Is Education


DDCdances is well known for superb dance education classes and workshops for people of all ages and abilities in schools and communities. DDC artists strongly believe that dance is a powerful means of communication that can energize communities, built self-esteem, courage, and pride. We engage and encourage each individual to create visual records of their thoughts and feelings through dance, music and literature.
