Stepping Up

(Ages 7 – Adult)

In our Stepping Up program, dancers further explore their love of dance through combinations of study in different genres.  Length of class increases as dancers progress in age, ability, and interest.  Dancers study 1-3 days per week, perform in the spring performance, and are invited to participate in other DMDC events.
