Our calendar begins in September and ends in June, with scheduled breaks in December, February and April. Summer programs are available.
DMDC takes special care in the placement of students. Each student will be placed in appropriate class levels according to age and ability at the discretion of the Director. Students are evaluated periodically throughout the season. Accelerated classes for qualified students are placed by invitation or audition. Students may audit classes of a more advanced level as a non-performing member of the class, at the discretion of the Director.
Students are expected to attend class regularly. Semester tuition must be paid in advance or students will not be allowed to participate. No refunds will be given after November 1. Students are encouraged to make up classes missed if a comparable class is available. Classes must be made up during the current semester.
Students must respect the dress code if they wish to participate in class. Please see detailed information on the Dress Code page.
Tuition is designed to be affordable and competitive and may be paid to accommodate your budget. Payment plans are available. Please see detailed information on the Tuition page.
The DMDC and the instructors are not liable for personal injuries or loss or damage to personal property. Each student may decline to participate in any activity, which may be harmful. Please inform your instructor of any physical limitations you may have.
