As a center for dance education and the Performing Arts, DC DanceSport Academy prioritizes the health, safety, and learning needs of its students. All lessons are done in full compliance with the CDC recommendations for social distancing. Our studio will require children to continue wearing masks at all times, until fully vaccinated. Family members and parents will also be required to wear a mask inside our studio unless a CDC vaccination card is presented to staff.
*The studio reserves the right to cancel any scheduled class session with less than four students in attendance and to change the space availability in either Monday, Tuesday, or Saturday classes based on student enrollments.
At DCDA, a Hobby Program is “inclusive” training that is student-centered, GENERAL instruction. Teachers present concepts in a welcoming and flexible classroom environment; this curriculum is accessible to all students.
A Unique Approach: Students are encouraged to design their own goals, practice essential skills based on their own learning style, and master material on their own timeline. In the DanceSport world, this is referred to as a “Hobby Dancer.” Students not only become experts in dance, but also how they learn best. But wait!…*HOBBY DANCER DOES NOT MEAN BEGINNER!*
Each week classes progress & challenge dancers to grow; the main difference between a HOBBY dancer and a MEDALIST dancer is simply how fast they attain their goals. A Hobby Program allows kids to become as good as they want to be, on their own timeline.
At DCDA, a MEDAL PROGRAM offers “exclusive” training that is specific, competitive, and based on the Medalist System. Like the Olympics, students progress through BRONZE, SILVER, and GOLD levels. These structured levels teach young students specific steps in a specific order, which maximizes students’ understanding and growth as their dance progress becomes measurable and clear.
Fitness is another important component that distinguishes the Medalist dancer from the Hobby dancer. Strength, power, and endurance are essential components of the curriculum and are built during every session on the dance floor. Frequency is key, as regular training will prevent students from spending time re-learning skills from week to week.
As part of a MEDAL Program students will perform and compete, thus proving and demonstrating their knowledge and proficiency as they “graduate” from one level to the next.
Preschoolers love to dance! We make it super fun for them to get involved and develop a love of movement. Your kids will learn to express their creativity, develop social skills, and build confidence in their own bodies. Nothing is more exciting for a child than movement, music, and fun!
Your kindergarten-aged kids will love these fun, high-energy dance classes! We begin to teach the basic principles of movement used in ballroom dancing. We will expand your child’s love of dance and continue to boost their confidence, self-esteem, and social skills. We also prepare the kids for some fun local competitions.
Strength & Flexibility
Coordination & Balance
Your kids are ready for competition! These classes will take your child to the next level. We focus on developing proper technique, flexibility, and performance skills. Your kids will be introduced to Ballroom dances (Walz, Tango, Foxtrot, Quickstep) and Latin dances (Cha-Cha, Samba, Rumba, Jive, and Pasodoble).
