As you are shopping for the holidays, please consider picking up a toy for the special collection happening at WDC!

We are teaming up with Skylar Glass, current Miss Minnesota Junior Pre-Teen. Skylar is collecting toys to donate to children in the hospital during the holidays this season. New toys for kids of all ages are being accepted now through December 15th!

Donations will benefit Gillette Children’s hospital.

A few great toy options are: Craft Kits, Games, Action Figures, Stuffed Animals, Puzzles, Books, Fidget Toys, Lego Bricks and Dolls.

Thank you for helping to make this collection a HUGE SUCCESS!!

Brrrrr.....Winter is here!! 

Classes canceled due to extreme weather will be communicated to our dance families as follows - email, BAND, WDC website, Facebook Page and Instagram posts, as well as the studio voicemail system. 

Texts will be sent out through our SMS system. Be sure that you have opted in for text messaging and your contact information is up to date in your account so that you receive these alert texts.

Please be sure to check in if you are unsure whether or not classes will be held.


At WDC we use the BAND app to help connect instructors with dancers/parents and also to keep parents updated throughout the season. Newsletters and important updates will be posted in the Darby's Dancers BAND app group. See the link below. Later in the season, instructors will post recital music and videos as the dancers prepare for our annual recital.

Use QR code or link HERE to join the BAND app group for WDC Darby's Dancers.

*We are using the same BAND group as last year for our Darby's Dancers classes so some of you may already have joined in the past and do not need to join again.
