It has been 3 years since we appeared at the Denton Arts & Jazz Festival and we are so excited to offer this opportunity to perform for our community to our dancers once again!  We only have 1 hour and will try to fit as many dancers as we can into that hour.  Factors that determine whether or not your class will perform are class attendance, choreography completion by the teacher, and overall attention to details by the dancers.  We will determine which classes are performing around the 2nd week of April.  Stay tuned and hope for nice weather!

Mr. Clower's work has included regional companies and schools, Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, Atlanta Ballet, as a regular guest at Broadway Dance Center, Ballet Master for Tanzsomer, on faculty of Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, and as Associate Ballet Master for Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo on their Australian/New Zealand Tour.  2017 marks the 15th year Mr. Clower visits Denton area dancers at Denton Dance Conservatory, and we are so excited and proud to offer our community this opportunity!

Special THANKS to Mr. Kevin & Ms. Jadah!
4th & 5th Graders at Rivera Elementary performed a hip hop routine choreographed by Mr. Kevin & rehearsed by Ms. Jadah in honor of
 Black History Month! The students enjoyed our DDC teachers so much that they gave them a pizza party too!
And a special "Thank You" to Ms. Gloria Mendoza who helped us arrange for Mr. Kevin & Ms. Jadah to work with students from Rivera Elementary on a hip hop routine in honor of Black History Month. This experience was so rewarding for both the teachers AND the students that Ms. Lisa is working with the Faculty and Staff at Rivera Elementary to help set up and sponsor a Dance Club next fall!  We are so excited about the possibilities of working with these students! This program is the first of what Ms. Lisa hopes to be many community-oriented projects to help bring dance to everyone!  Way to go Kevin and Jadah!
