Dream Dance Academy's dance company is a performance and competition based company that embraces all styles of dance. Classical technique and providing the highest level of training is our priority and we use this to build the foundation for our dancers. However, our choreography and performances will not strictly be classical ballet, they will encompass a large variety of music and dance styles like jazz, tap, modern, ballet, lyrical, contemporary, etc...

The “Big Little” program is designed to benefit Dream Dance Academy’s Company members. Our “Big's'” will have a chance to acquire leadership skills while making a difference in our “Little's” lives. We want our dancers to have the best experience possible with dance. They will be able to trust and depend on each other for support and build bonds that could last a lifetime. Big/Little is not always based on age/size. It is also based on years of experience as a DDA Company dancer.
Here are some of the things our “Big's/Little's” will be doing:
Help each other with dances
Holiday treat bags and/or gifts
Be a Role Model
Your partner at conventions and competitions
Make sure they are okay at performances and recitals
Help with costume changes and staying organized
