On June 6, 2016 DBSD celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a very special recital. The evening began with a video reminiscing about DBSD's first 50 years, generations of past DBSD dancers took the stage to perform a flash-mob anniversary dance, then DBSD's current dancers dazzled us with this season's routines. This is the Anniversary video that started the show...

Our school year starts in September and concludes with a full costume recital in June.

Our Mission

At DBSD we want our dancers to realize their potential and follow their dreams. We have a place for the recreational dancer as well as the full time student. Every dancer and their dance education is equally important at DBSD. Work your hardest, have fun and we will take care of the rest!
