DDDS has been educating dancers since 1960!  Check out our story in the Suburbanite.
All classes are professionally taught by adult teachers with years of teaching experience and dedication to DDDS and our students. DDDS has been a home away from home for dancers for many years and many friendships have started here.  We continue to maintain our integrity and polished reputation while becoming role models for our students in sharing our passion for dance as an art form.  We have opportunities for both the recreational and competitive dancer but all students receive the same dedicated instruction.   We hope you consider joining our family!

DDDS is very proud to have recieved the 2013 Akron Award's Program for Best Dancing Instruction!  Thank you Akron & all our wonderful teachers!!

We are very honored to have been voted #1 Best Dance Studio in the "Beacon's Best" contest for 2013!!
