They build good basic techniques.  You will see improved posture and confidence.

Our classes are full of magic and creativity, but at the same time disciplined and professional. Children can come for pure fun and fitness , but equally they can attend extra classes and be well prepared for international exams and comps.

Your child will adore all the different dance choreographies (especially the costumes and props!).   Your child will shine in our end of year show!  We add a little drama in, creative dance and singing as this enhances confidence, teamwork and performance skills.

If your child loves performing arts you might want to stay on for Acro & Dance or the Full Day of Performing Arts class which includes drama. In both cases there is a supervised 30 minutes lunch break.

Testimonials

Being part of  DCA this year has been one of the nicest parts of my daughter's year. The classes strike the perfect balance of being fast-paced enough to keep the children's attention, but slow enough that they learn a lot of dances in just a matter of weeks. As a result, I have seen my daughter bloom into a little girl with increased confidence and physical coordination. DCA gives her a way to take part in the allure of pop music and dance trends in a completely age-appropriate way. I wish there were classes for adults!   

Allaine Cerwonka (Mother of 8 year old who attends combo class)

Testimonials

What started out as a two hour Saturday morning dance program for our daughter has turned into a 7 hours performing art spectacle for both of our kids on a weekly basis. Every Saturday and Sunday our kids can't wait for their dance and drama classes to begin. 

 

Our kids made friends there and so did we.  DCA is so much more than just an English language dance school. Their dance and theater showcases are planned and executed with so much attention to detail, followed by a cinema party where the kids can watch themselves perform.

Testimonials

Sunny Ruoqi joined DCA in the late autumn of 2019.  Her learning journey with DCA is very pleasant, inspiring, and rewarding. Among all other dancing courses like theatre dance and street dance, Sunny focuses on ballet, the more classical, comprehensive and demanding type. 

AT the very beginning, she danced once a week. And later as she registered for the IDTA examination, she started to have lessons twice a week, one for learning and practice on the basis of a progressive syllabus, and the other is a special module for examination. Under systematic and insistent training with Ms. Susie and Ms. Sandra, She achieved “Distinction” in the Preparatory level exam, her first exam of IDTA at the age of 7 in the early of 2020. After that, she continued learning almost nonstop till now. 

In the spring of 2020 when Hungary was facing the first wave of pandemic Covid-19, DCA offered online lessons and Sunny attended the majority of the ballet lessons, keeping the frequency of once or twice per week.  The lessons offered by DCA are with good methodology to meet professional requirements of development on the one hand, and on the other, it is appealing in Ms Susie’s artistic delivering. The tempo of each lesson is not harsh and intense but effective and efficient. Sunny enjoys the free dancing part best. She also enjoys greatly all the music that Ms. Susie uses in the class.

Testimonials

We first joined DCA  when our daughter was 4.  She has just turned 12 and every week she continues to enjoy dance and drama with DCA.  Sandra, Susie and all the teachers provide an amazingly supportive, safe and fun environment for kids to learn and develop their skills, staying active and building confidence.  Fantastic costumes and the year end shows are  always a highlight for the kids.  From extra parties, acrogym and summer camps I think we have tried almost everything.  

Sandra is always seeking feedback and ideas for staying relevant which has been particularly important over the last 12 months with classes going online.

We have made some amazing friendships and will always have fond memories of our daughter growing up with DCA.
