DCM Instructors will invite parents in periodically throughout the year to present a selection of classroom material that our youngest students have been working on. This in-class presentation allows students to experience the art of performing on a more personal level for their families and friends. Your child's instructor will let you know when class observation sessions are scheduled.
Parents and friends are invited into the studio to observe DCM classes at the midpoint in the year. This offers an opportunity for guests to see what dancers have been working on in class, and to track a student's progress from year to year. Parents and friends can take photos and watch DCM instructors interacting with the class. Visitor's Week schedules will be posted in January of each year.
