Diggs School of Dance, established in 1975, is a technique-oriented program designed to develop an appreciation for dance and ensure that all students have the opportunity to express themselves through this very special art form. The school offers a concentrated program for those students desiring an intense level of study as well as a general program designed for students who want to dance for personal enjoyment or physical fitness.

Both programs provide an environment that develops students physically, emotionally and intellectually. This environment is achieved through highly qualified and dedicated teachers committed to promoting self-esteem, encouraging self-confidence and offering positive challenges for every student.

The faculty members of Diggs School of Dance are continuously working to enhance and strengthen the quality of dance instruction your child receives, as well as ensuring that the training environment is safe and nurturing.
