Philosophy & Mission

Since 1969,the Davis Center has provided dance instructions and related arts education to Washington metropolitan area residents of all ages and varied backgrounds. Using dance and music as tools, the Davis Center aims to instill in its students an enduring appreciation for the arts while at the same time helping them to develop perseverance, self-confidence, respect for others and the ability to work as a team. Through a process that requires consistent attendance, proper dance attire, and a firm commitment to learning, students are taught to dance and perform. While the ability to perform dance is an immediate outcome of our training, a strong work ethic, poise, determination and creative vision that our students develop ultimately equips them for success in any endeavor.
