Fall Is In The Air!
We have breezed through the first few weeks of classes here at BDCS and we are entering into September. September is the official end of summer and the start of a new school year. It is an exciting time of year and we are looking forward to sharing what is new and happening here at BDCS!
BDCS is continuing to work on creating a culture of community. It is a big focus for us for the season. With community in mind, developed the studio theme of the month; upserving and family engagement. The team is working this month on ways we can upserve our families to create more engagement. Community is built by engagement. We are looking to engage with you and for you to engage with BDCS!

Dance Parties and Workshops

We are excited to bring these extra opportunities for our students to learn and grow. They encourage techniques and skills that are beyond what is covered in regular classes. We are able to bring the students together in a way that builds community and collaboration across all styles, ages and abilities. If you are a VIP member these opportunities are included in your annual membership and we encourage you to take full advantage of your membership.
