About Our Studio...
The Dianna Durkin Dance Studio (DDDS), located in
the City of Green, has been teaching dance for over 50 years. All
classes are taught by qualified dance professionals who use a non-competitive
approach to dance, while making classes fun and interesting for kids of all
ages. Our focus is to teach discipline, improve learning skills, improve
self confidence, encourage creativity, and develop of love of dance as an
art form. Most of our classes also have a teaching assistant, to give students
a group lesson with time for individual attention.
The studio has two large teaching
rooms. We also have one smaller room,
used for make-ups or for any student needing extra attention during their
The large teaching rooms have wood floating floors to help
In addition, both studio A and B have large
observation windows. We welcome parents and friends to observe
Our Annual Dance Recital
Dance Recital is in June. We will notify students & parents in October,
of the exact
date for the Recital. All students are encouraged to participate, but it is not mandatory.
At The Dianna Durkin Dance Studio, we use dance
competition as a fun and exciting learning experience. It is up to the
individual teacher of each class to determine when the students are
ready to attend competitions. We do participate in some competitions
to give our students performance opportunities. If we did not compete,
opportunities to perform would be very limited. The students have to be willing to work
hard and practice, practice, practice!
