DCM Online Content - Week 10
Activities, games, and videos to keep you dancing!
#DCMKeepDancing
DCM will be closed for the foreseeable future due to directives from the government to prevent the spread of COVID-19. All currently enrolled dance families should have received an email about our Spring Session. We thank you all for your continued support and understanding during what is a challenging time for everyone.

One way we can help out is to provide some dance related ideas, games, activities,
and movement exercises for all of our dancers and families!
