Faculty– Experienced and trained dance educators wanting to build professional artists to carry their passion for dance out into the world. Many have had collegiate/professional experience. Multiple years of teaching experience. (Well-rounded)
Facility-State of the art floating marley floors. Benefits our students by reducing muscle
fatigue and preventing injury.
Family– We want to promote a sense of family at PDC.
Values– We believe strong technique training begins in your first class. Technique comes first, then choreography time. Choreography is improved by what they achieve in their technique classes.
We know not everyone wants to be a professional dancer in life, but we still want to provide the best training possible. Company is a big commitment physically, emotionally, and financially so we believe in getting the most out of it.
If working in the industry is what your dancer is wanting, we will provide opportunities and mentoring to help achieve their goals. (preparing for college auditions/professional
