HOBBY Program or MEDAL Program?
Choose Your Track!

What is a HOBBY PROGRAM?

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.

What is a MEDAL PROGRAM?

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.
