The Off-Ice Dance Program features an exceptional professional staff with world-class experience serving the DSC membership. Our degreed instructors’ credentials include ongoing professional performing, touring, and choreographing as well as serving on faculty at Oakland University and having provided master classes at studios and universities around the country.
DSC members may select from ongoing classes in ballet, contemporary, creative movement, ballroom, Pilates, repertory and stretch. Frequent “iDance” workshops allow skaters and non-skaters to explore different styles of dance technique including jazz, hip hop, Broadway, improvisation, Ballywood, and stepping among others.
Off-ice dance training provides a solid foundation for a skater’s on-ice training. Dance classes enhance the skater’s understanding of posture, body alignment, grace, control, position, musicality, and creativity.
