Monthly Theme Week
Every month we have a different theme week where we encourage dancers to come to their dance class dressed up to match that month’s theme for some added fun. During the week of Monday, May 15th through Saturday, May 20th we encourage our dancers to dress up in their silliest socks and wear their hair in the craziest (or most creative) way possible! We’re excited for this theme week and we hope you are too! But remember, theme weeks are just for fun and are not mandatory to participate in.
The dance studio will be open Saturday, May 27th of Memorial Day weekend. However, we will be closed Monday, May 29th in observance of Memorial Day and we will reopen Tuesday, May 30th.
Our 2017 Picture Days are scheduled for Saturday, May 13th and Thursday, June 1st. Photos of each class will be taken by our professional photographer here at our dance studio. A schedule is available and posted in our studio lobbies for which day your class’ picture will be taken and for what time to arrive. You will need to show up at your arrival time with you/your dancer completely dressed in costume as if it were a performance. Individual photographs of dancers may also be taken upon purchase of a photo package. Photo packages and information on purchasing a photo package is available at the front desk.
DDPAC Picture Day Line-Up
We have our 2nd Picture Day on Thursday, June 1st starting at 4:30 pm.
*Below are the call times in which photos are being taken for each group. These are estimated times and will be determined by the amount of dancers that choose to do individual shots. Dancers are to arrive dressed in their costume and “performance” ready at least 15 minutes before the time listed. Please be on time as each group is only allotted a 15 minute time slot. The opportunity to take individual shots in a particular class will be given after the group photo for that class has been taken. Please let us know before hand if you are interested in doing an individual shot. You can sign up at the front desk or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Rising Stars Performance
Our Rising Stars Performance was a success! Thank you to the DDPAC staff, parent volunteers, and our pre-teen/senior volunteers for all of your help with these performances! We couldn't do it without all of you. It was a fun day and a great sneak peek into what is in store for our 17th Annual Performance!
DDPAC Park Performance
Who is ready for some studio fun in the sun?! We are! On Sunday, June 11th starting at 10am we will be hosting our DDPAC Park Performance and Potluck Picnic at Hulda Crooks Park. The park is located at 11800 Mountain View Ave. in Loma Linda. This will be a casual performance where admittance is free. We do ask that you bring blankets and/or lawn chairs to sit on and to make yourselves comfortable during the performance as seating will not be provided. Spots for seating are on a first-come first-serve basis and we will warn you that DDPAC knows how to pack a venue, no matter how open it is! If you want a good spot, be sure to arrive early! The performance is expected to run approximately 2 hours long. After you/your dancer has performed, you are free to leave. However, after the performance we do invite you to join us for a studio-wide potluck picnic, water games, and park fun! A potluck sign-up sheet will be posted in the studio lobbies once it gets closer to the performance date if you plan on bringing something to the potluck picnic. Oh! And be sure to bring a change of clothes for your dancer to ensure that their costume does not get messed up!
