Welcome to DVC DANCE

Classes listed under PEDAN are activity based classes geared for the recreational dancer with little to no dance training. Classes listed under DANCE are for students who have previous dance training, accelerated dancers, pre-professional dancers and dancers who wish to pursue a career in the dance field.
Students are encouraged to speak with a faculty member regarding placement in upper level dance classes and/or any classes beyond the fundamentals level.

Current show information
Every year DVC dance puts on two productions: the winter production is choreographed by our faculty members and the spring production is choreographed by the students in the program. Both shows touch on various styles of the dance; including, modern, jazz, ballet, Latin, and ballroom. The productions are always very beautiful and quite a visual treat.
