Our popular showcase of talent, So We Think We Can Dance is back for its eighth year! This student-run production has sold-out audiences for the past seven years. Totally produced by DAC dance student volunteers, ages 10 to 18, the show returns to the DAC Weatherstone Studio with performances on Saturday, February 2nd at 7 p.m. and Sunday, February 3rd at 2 p.m. 

Eighteen DAC student choreographers with 40 dancers, manage all stages of creation and execution, and choreograph and perform approximately 17 dances that encompass many different styles of dance. 

The DAC dance program provides dedicated students a one of kind opportunity, to produce a show from start to finish. So We Think We Can Dance was the brainchild of past DAC students, some who have moved on to pursue careers in dance. They envisioned using the skills they had developed from years of dancing at the DAC, to express their individuality in their very own dances, while having a chance to shine. It has proven to be a great success, beyond selling out audiences. According to Amy Allen, DAC executive director, “So We Think We Can Dance truly fills us with pride. Our students utilize years of practice, to create, choreograph and produce an entertaining show. It empowers creative thinking and builds confidence that we watch our students take with these students and their talent every year. They really put their hearts into this, as well as a lot of time and effort. I can’t wait to see this year’s performances.” 

DAC dance students, Meghan Wood, Mackenzie Swift and Eva Larino are producing the 2019 show.

Tickets for So We Think We Can Dance 2018 are $10 and the show runs for approximately 2 hours.
