"I wouldn’t trade my 15 years at DDH for anything in the world. "
"At DDH, I not only found some of my best friends, but I also found my second family. The instructors here are so supportive in all aspects of my life. Through dance, I have gained self-confidence, determination, persistence, and so much more. I wouldn’t trade my 15 years at DDH for anything in the world. "
Both my daughter and I have become part of a ‘family’
"Largely in part to DDH, my daughter’s love for dance has continued to grow throughout the past 12 years. Being a part of this studio has taught her that dance is more than just steps to music. DeeDee, as well as all the instructors, are the best! Both my daughter and I have become part of a ‘family’ we never would have known otherwise."
"Without hesitation I would recommend DDH!"
"For 15+ years my daughter has experienced inspiring instructors that have shared with her the fundamentals in technique, their love and expertise of dance, creativity and true caring for their students. We could not have asked for stronger positive role models that truly cared for our daughter. DDH is not only a dance studio, but a place where my daughter made lifelong friendships, learned beautiful artistic discipline, responsibility, commitment, creativity and self-confidence. We will be eternally grateful for DDH. Without hesitation I would recommend DDH!"

DDH Dance Academy offers yearly fundraisers to dancers & dance families to help with tuition & payments. Typically we do a yearly Butter-braid fundraiser which starts Fall. This is a great way to make dance fun and affordable. Although you are not required to participate, we encourage all to take advantage of our yearly fundraisers.
Monthly payments are due the first of every month. Tuition rates are for the full season (September to May, including studio holidays). Late payments must include a $10 late fee for each month it is late. Payments are considered late after 10 days after the 1st of each month. Returned checks will incur a $35 service charge. Costume deposits are due the end of October.
Students do NOT move up every year as they would in school. If you are placed in the same class title you have been in for several years, it is most likely that it reflects the rising standard of the class.
