There will be 3 separate show times: 10am, 11:30am, and 1pm. Select classes will have the opportunity to perform and showcase all that they have learned since the beginning of our season. If you would like to know if your dancer’s class is participating, feel free to ask your child’s teacher or send us an email asking!

DDPAC Toy Drive
Here at Dance Dimensions we try our best to be involved in giving back to our community and supporting those who are less fortunate. We feel that this is an important lesson to teach our students so they grow up to have good, caring hearts. DDPAC will be hosting a Toy Drive now through our 2018 DDPAC Winter Performance. We are asking for donations of new unwrapped toys for boys and girls of all ages. You may donate a new toy to receive 1 admission ticket to our 2018 DDPAC Winter Performance. For each new toy you donate, you will receive 1 ticket.
December Theme Week
For the month of December, we will be having “Winter Theme Week.” This festive week will take place Saturday, December 17th – Saturday, December 22nd. Dancers are encouraged to attend their dance class dressed in their cutest winter wear! We just ask that any accessories the dancer might wear won’t cause any distractions while in class. Please remember that theme weeks are just for fun and are not mandatory to participate in.
The studio will be closed 2 weeks for our Winter/Holiday Break. We will be closed Monday, December 24th through Saturday, January 5th. We will reopen for classes Monday, January 7th, 2019!

That’s right! We are already in preparation of our BIGGEST event of the dance year. Save the date for our 19th (can you believe it? 19!!!) Annual Performance Thursday, June 20th through Saturday, June 22nd. Between the Holidays quickly approaching and Annual Performance costumes being ordered in January, we are taking deposits now for Annual Performance Costumes! This will secure your spot! Deposits are $30 per class.
DDPAC Winter Break BINGO
We love our breaks as much as the next person however, we want to encourage our dancers, ESPECIALLY OUR COMPANY DANCERS, to stay in shape while they are on winter break from school and dance. We have created a fun BINGO Challenge to keep our dancers working hard. This game/challenge is open to ALL DDPAC dancers and highly recommended for our Company dancers. Company dancers will receive a BINGO Challenge card in their Company mailbox. Extra BINGO Challenge cards will be available at the front desk for any dancers wishing to participate. Various prizes will be awarded! For official rules, please see the rules on the bottom portion of the BINGO Challenge card.
If you have not already noticed, the 215 Freeway and Barton Road on-ramps and off-ramps are going through some improvements. Although the end results are going to be desirable, the construction and traffic it is causing now is definitely a headache. Please keep this construction traffic in mind when coming to the studio and when leaving the studio. We would like to suggest that when coming to the studio you either take the Mt. Vernon/Washington exit and take Mt. Vernon to Barton, or take the Center St. exit and take Center St. to Michigan to Barton. Taking 1 exit earlier or 1 exit later might help you avoid getting stuck in this traffic. Bear with us!
