DAB Company

 DAB Company is an exclusive group of dancers that represent Dance Academy of Bellevue in both the studio and in the Bellevue community. Company members reinstate the DAB core values of creativity, encouragement, teamwork, and community. Company members are taught how to lead and mentor each other as well as their fellow dance peers throughout the studio. 

 

DAB Company is offered to dancers who are enrolled in Preparatory level or higher. Company members take additional technique classes and learn new choreography weekly. This helps build up their strength, stamina, confidence, as well as how to retain and pick up choreography quicker. Company members will have extra performance opportunities throughout the season that include community events, conventions, and recitals.
