Young dancers need to be inspired by artists who care deeply about educating the next generation and who bring innovative thinking and education about dance to DSD! Our faculty has included instructors from the National Ballet School and professional dancers from across Europe and North America. They include alumni of Juilliard (NYC), Joffrey Academy of Dance (Chicago), the School of American Ballet (NYC), and the London Contemporary Dance School (UK), among others.
Recent faculty for DSD included Robert McCollum (Ballet Bob) and Katie MacFarlane teaching ballet, UK-based dancer and choreographer Bridget Lappin, and multidisciplinary artist Jacinte Armstrong instructing modern. Lessons with visiting artists will be announced.
In 2022, Andrew Dahms accompanied on percussion, delivering African drumming workshops, and Emily Shute accompanied on piano and provided music theory.
