I love dance class! It feels like a party every week and all those mirrors on the wall just double the fun because it looks like I have twice as many friends! Dancing is great because it lets you move around in creative ways to music and hang out with friends! That’s one of life’s best combinations—music and friends! I am so thankful for my family that enjoys music with me and has taught me about all different kinds of music. We have family dance parties a lot and enjoying those even more since I started Darby’s Dancers three years ago.

Our goal is to give every child the tools to discover all that dance has to offer.


During our class, we give each dancer the opportunity to dance across the floor one at a time. Each girl has a smile that extends beyond the walls of our studio when she takes her turn to glide, turn or leap across the room. Those smiles melt my heart.

"Be Brave Like Me!"

Dance connected Darby with friends and strangers alike, and she encouraged anyone who was having a problem or facing an adversity to “be brave like me!”.


Our family wishes to thank you for the impact and joy Darby's Dancers has brought to our lives. Daisy tried on her first recital dress and hasn't stopped beaming. She is making lasting friendships and dancing is a joy that carries over through the week

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion

Diversity is having a seat at the table, inclusion is having a voice, and belonging is having that voice be heard.
