The popular showcase of talent, So We Think We Can Dance is back for its seventh year  in 2018 at the Darien Arts Center (, where the student-run production has sold-out audiences for the past six years. Totally produced by DAC dance student volunteers, ages 10 to 18, the show returns to the DAC Weatherstone Studio with performances on Saturday, January 13th at 7 p.m. and Sunday, January 14th at 2 p.m. DAC dance students 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.

“So We Think We Can Dance truly fills us with pride. Our students utilize years of practice to choreograph and produce an entertaining show. This process empowers creative thinking and builds confidence that our students take with them to college.” - Amy Allen, DAC Executive Director. 

DAC dance students, Natalie Pitteway, Mackenzie Swift and Meghan Wood produced the 2018 show.
