News & Events

New Discount Programs & Instructors in Season 12 @ D.O.
We are personally invested in training youth to be well-rounded dancers and individuals, therefore, we fully believe that exploring various styles of dancing helps kids to grow and appreciate our craft. Dance Lessons are Life Lessons @ D.O.!
Providing: Multiple Class & Sibling Discounts Military Discounts D.O. Unlimited Dance Packages & Value Program (details on D.O. website Tuition Rates section).

New D.O. Teachers!
Ballet is the core foundation of all dancing. It gives an immediate sense of structure and etiquette, which is a base for everything we do in dance. Ballet technique is very specific, repetitive and requires a lot of practice to improve. The qualities of discipline and dedication in dance class translate into other areas of life, like work and school.
— For Season 12 @ D.O., we have brought on some FABULOUS new Ballet instructors to our Team of Faculty, in order to boost our Ballet Technique and instill the joy of Ballet.

Miss Danielle Guest: Intermediate Ballet II & III, Advanced Ballet IV & V 
Danielle (Miss Dani G), grew up training as a pre-professional Ballerina, studying Ballet, Pointe, Pas de Deux, along with other various styles of dancing. After seeing D.O.’s Season 11 Recital, Dani and her twin sister, excitedly met with Kim & Jim, and made plans to incorporate secondary Intermediate (Level II & III) and Advanced (Level IV & V) Ballet Classes to our Core Competition Programs. Miss Dani is a unique and passionate teacher, who makes all the gals feel like beautiful Ballerina Princesses and the dudes feel like strong Cavalier Kings!

Miss Rachel Neitzke: Advanced Ballet V, Ballet IV, Modern
Rachel has trained all over the U.S. since the age of two, and has been dancing professionally since she was 15. She gained much of her professional training through Koresh Dance Company, and prides herself in being a founding member of the Koresh Youth Ensemble. Rachel graduated from The University of the Arts earning a BFA with honors in Dance. She is currently working as a free-lance dancer, while teaching full time at Philadelphia Performing Arts: A String Theory Charter School. This season at D.O., Miss Rachel will be instructing the Advanced Ballet V, Ballet IV and Modern Programs. D.O. dancers have already expressed how much they enjoy and learned from Miss Rachel, as she not only is teaching dance, but provides vast ballet vocabulary education and tests her students knowledge! 

We are looking forward to dancing together and cannot wait to see what this season holds!
