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

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

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, we want to audience to feel comfortable. Our shows and performances are alwasy family friendly.
