   Dancing with Class in Akron/Green Ohio since 1960 

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 our dancers 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.  All students receive the same dedicated instruction.   We hope you consider joining our family!
