We encourage dancers to be as dedicated to their academic studies as they are to their dance training. If your participation in this program affects your grades or the expectations and goals set by your parents, we cannot allow you to continue in the program.
There will be times when classes, rehearsals, or performances will be scheduled when your non-dance friends or family may be headed to the mall or the movies.
Reasons Why This Program Might Be A Good Fit For You:
Current Team members MUST re-audition every season.

Dance Team Entry Fees
Fees are approximately $50–$60 per dancer per routine per competition. Please be aware that if you are in 3 routines, you have to pay 3 entry fees. Solos, duos, and trios may compete as well for an additional $70-120 per dance per competition. We will participate in at least 2 competitions and at least one community performance. Dancers may also have the option of attending a dance convention (a day of master classes with teachers from across the country) and/or a National Competition.
Dance Team Costumes
Dance Team Costumes are approximately $75-100 each. Payment follows the regular schedule – costume deposits ($50 per costume) will be due on November 1st and the balance will be due on December 10th.
Dance Team Jackets
Dance Team Jackets are approximately $100. Matching dance pants are approximately $40. Jackets are REQUIRED – pants are optional. These are a one-time purchase – you only will need a new jacket year-to-year if you grow out of it or lose it.
Makeup & Earrings
Team members are all required to have specific makeup – we order team makeup kits through the studio (included in the annual team fee). Earrings, also available through the studio only, are approximately $15. They are available as clip-on’s and posts. Earrings do not need to be repurchased year-to-year unless you need replacements.
“This is the 9th season our family has been a part of the DIDC community. We have referred countless families to DIDC over the years. This was a no-brainer because the studio has become a home away from home for our girls and we value DIDC. The staff truly cares about each individual dancer. Our girls are unique, yet their differences are their strengths, not only in life but also dance. The DIDC staff understands this and foster the individual needs of every dancer. We have watched our daughters progress from the introductory classes for three year olds all the way to the DIDC Team. Their confidence growing every step of the way. We are truly grateful for the role DIDC plays in our family’s life and are very proud of our dancers.”
