Unique Performance Opportunities

Pre-professional “Academy” students have the benefits of multiple performance opportunities each year.

  • Destination performances at Disneyland
  • Holiday performances, including community events
  • Exclusive “Academy” show in late winter/early spring
  • Starring in anticipated DDA “dance film” for media advertising
  • Multiple performances and exclusives at DDA end of year showcase dates

Our goal is to give the dedicated dancer more opportunity and exposure for real-life application in the art of dance.  Academy students have intern opportunities by invitation at the advanced level as well as teaching opportunities within DDA.

Love, love, love!  My daughter has danced at 3 studios over the last 10 years, and Dayley Dance Academy is now our home.  It’s a combination of top instructors for multiple dance styles, to the focus on proper technique… to the Professional dance company performances that have made all the difference for us.
