About Delaware Dance Company
Mission: To advance the knowledge and appreciation of dance in the community and region through instruction, performances, and outreach programs: to provide the highest quality educational opportunities possible in all aspects of dance to anyone desiring such education; to be viewed as a community and regional leader in preparing vocational students for a professional career in dance.
Delaware Dance Company has been a fixture in the greater Newark area arts community for nearly four decades. In addition to offering top quality dance education through academic year classes and summer programs, DDC has presented an annual "Nutcracker" ballet every year since 1984. In the spring, DDC presents a second production, either a mixed repertoire dance concert or a story-based dance feature. When possible, local school groups are invited to see these productions free of charge. DDC offers tuition assistance to families with demonstrated need so that all children who desire a dance eduction can enroll in classes. Recently, a program to offer free and reduced tuition classes for boys was initiated to increase the gender diversity at the school. DDC works to inspire a love of dance in all who participate in its programs!
