DDC registration now open


The Downtown Dance Conservatory (DDC) is now registering students for their 2023-2024 dance season. Entering its 21st season, the Conservatory welcomes around 500 students each week in classes such as classical ballet, character tap, contemporary jazz and the unique ImagiDANCE! Program for three and four-year-old children.
Classical Technique for Homelearners will be new to the Fall schedule as a beginner class for the local home-schooling and home-learning community in Etowah County and surrounding areas. The classes are open to any homeschool student in the community ages six to eight (Level I) and ages eight through 10 (Level II). The class curriculum includes rhythm studies, age-appropriate syllabus work in ballet technique, coordination and exploring the world of dance.
Beginner Teen Ballet will also be new to the 2023-2024 Conservatory schedule. This class is open to any student in the community aged 11 and up. This class is a wonderful stepping stone for any activity or sport/fitness. The curriculum will focus on the basics of classical ballet.
Housed in the Hardin Center, the DDC has been the heart of the local classical ballet community. The organization has collaborated, staged and hosted many productions and projects.
The Conservatory is introducing two brand new programs into the schedule this upcoming Fall. Limited spots are available. Classes will begin August 21 and run with the school year through May.
