The Dianna Durkin Dance Studio (DDDS), located in the City of Green, has been teaching dance since 1960.  All classes are taught by highly qualified dance professionals who use a non-competitive approach to dance, while making classes fun and interesting for dancers of all ages. 


Our goals are to teach our students:

1.   How to develop movement skills, musicality, and creativity

2.   To become a responsive listener

3.   The foundation of dance; to develop an appreciation for the art form

4.   That Dance improves their health, well being, and learning ability

5.   To develop a positive relationship with their bodies

6.   To show respect to their teachers and fellow students

7.   Working together can help them feel more connected to others; create & share in the community 

8.   Lifetime characteristics :  Responsibility,Integrity, Leadership and Respect for others

9.  How to set goals and attain them 

We have 3 Studio teaching rooms, A, B & C.  Studio A & B  have floating wood floors, and observation windows for parents and friends.  Studio C has floating Marley floors & a monitor in lobby for viewing the class

Our 60th Annual Dance Recital is June 6th 2021 at the Canton Palace Theater

Our Advanced level students participate in 1-2 dance competitions a year, 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.
