Frequently Asked Questions
Our goal at DDA is to build leadership, teamwork, and expression through dance training and performances.
At DDA we have age appropriate curriculum, high energy and supportive classes, nurturing, and passionate coaches, and performance opportunities. DDA offers a variety of affordable and convenient programs to fit any dancer. At Dynasty we have fun blends of jazz, hip-hop, ballet, cheer, and more.
Students enrolled in the 12-week performance session will participate in a final performance (TBD) additional fees required.
How long are the after school dance programs?
DDA offers 8 or 12 week sessions at your school. The 8 week regular session is $110, and the 12 week performance session is $165 + $70 costume fee. Both sessions include the same curriculum but the 12 week dancers will go on to perform at Recital.
What kind of dance class is this?
Majority of our after school program classes and recreational classes are what we call Combination Classes or Combo Class. Our curriculum includes combinations of Ballet, Cheer, Hip-Hop, and Jazz dance styles. Each week students will explore these different styles of dance and our 12 week performers will go on to perform one or more of these dance styles at recital.
What should my child wear to class?
Girls: Black dance pants, plain purple top, tan jazz shoes. Hair: Ponytail. Boys: loose fitting black pants or shorts, plain green top, tennis shoes. Bring a spill proof water bottle to every dance class.
