Being a part of DC is something special. From our faculty to our students, every person who comes through our doors brings with them personal aspirations and unique challenges – and a family that comes along for the ride.

Our families are the foundation on which our studios run, providing emotional (and of course, vehicular) support to our dancers. We’ve spent some time with a few parents who wanted to speak to their individual DC experience.
