it's more than just dance.
DFD was founded on the notion that young students can reach a higher potential if they’re taught advanced choreography at an early stage. Our precision-based training is used to not only build strong dancers, but also a means to build confidence, diversity of thought, and collaboration for the next generation of dancers.
It's About confidence...
Our philosophy is to teach students the most difficult choreography we think they can handle and then simplify from there. This way, we can truly see what their potential is, and so can they. There's no better way to give students confidence and a new perspective than by helping them achieve something outside of their comfort zone.
Diversity of Thought
We aim to teach students to embrace ALL styles of dance and culture, whether it be Bollywood or Hip Hop, Contemporary or Folk, Indian or western. Because, as we like to say, dance is about expressing yourself, and emotion is too complex to be conveyed in one form. Fusion is all about blending different styles to create something undefined, and that’s exactly what our choreography is about - showcasing the diversity AND cohesion of different art forms.
At DFD, students are not only learning how to dance; they’re learning how to perform, and part of that comes from understanding how to dance with one another. Here you’re not a solo artist. To create the best performances, and to get the most out of your training, you have to learn how to dance as a team. That's where our precision-based instruction comes in.
