What is a Christian-based dance studio? 
  
Music
Along with big band music, pop music, Broadway show music, and children’s songs, at DAC we often use contemporary Christian music, modern worship music, and gospel music.

Costumes
We are very conservative and spend many hours each year choosing fun, attractive costumes that we consider appropriate for our dancers.

Choreography
All of our choreography is approved by our owner/director, Susan Palso, to ensure that movements are appropriate and modest for our young dancers. The standard for our choreography is simple: It should be pleasing to God when He watches our students dance. 

Recitals and Productions
When our dancers perform in public, the message should always come through loud and clear: We want God to be glorified by our dancing!
