District Dance is a children's dance studio focused on empowering and supporting the next generation of courageous leaders! We have been a dance studio in Germantown for the past 10 years! In fall 2021, we moved to a beautiful, renovated location in the Kentlands.
Through our comprehensive dance education, our amazing team of teachers and staff inspires and encourages our dancers to be bold, take chances, and grow into not only strong people but beautiful, strong dancers.
Our dance family not only enjoys teaching the art of dance in the studio, but we also enjoy building relationships with each other outside of the studio. We believe a happy work environment is key to creating a positive atmosphere and retaining high-level instructors.
Our Core Values
Our studio is our family! Our dance studio in Germantown is about bringing together our students and linking them up with the individualized support they need to feel connected to one another, their bodies, and their community. Our new location in the Kentlands will have the same focus! The more connected students feel the more joy they experience on a daily basis.
It takes a village! In every interaction with our students, we support our parents in their effort to raise children with strong character. Through praise, positive interactions, and setting a consistent example, our team isn’t just creating beautiful dancers, they are aiding in the creation of beautiful people.
We are not only committed to our students, we teach our students to be committed to their dance classes. Commitment is a lifelong skill that we promote and foster from day one.
Dance is a celebration of the creativity we inherently have inside us all. We spend our season working our bodies and minds hard and it's our goal to celebrate our students' achievements every moment we can -- especially after our two amazing dance performances! From confetti cannons and balloons to personalized gifts for each performer, we can't wait to make your child feel like the VIP they are! Come celebrate with us!
Nothing is Possible Without You!
Your schedule is busier than ever and your children have so many activities to choose from! That’s why choosing the right dance program is important to you. Whether you’re looking for a low-key, recreational dance class or a more intense, competitive dance program, we have options for every family. Our goal is likely the same as your goal — building a confident child who is active, happy and supported in their creative endeavors.
“District Dance offers our children an opportunity to grow in confidence, ability, and self-expression. The teachers are top notch – prepared, talented, and passionate! The recitals and performances are professionally produced and well-managed. If you want your child to blossom as a dancer and as a person, District Dance is an excellent investment in your child’s development!”
Peter C. – Parent
“Our daughter is very shy and we have seen her ‘come out of her shell’ because of her love of dance. The instructors and other young dancers at District Dance are kind and welcoming and have nurtured our daughter’s growth and confidence which has positively influenced her relationships at school. We are thrilled to see our daughter thrive and enjoy herself.”
Becky B. – Parent
“We feel extremely privileged to be part of something so special. Your teachers are so good, the care they take with the kids, and the relationships and trust they build is phenomenal. Thank you so much!”
Mia M. – Parent
“As grandparents who are very involved in our granddaughter’s life, we would love to express our appreciation of District Dance and all they have done for Ayva. Her dance career began at the young age of 3-1/2 with an introduction to ballet and four years later she is now on her second year of competition team. The dance teachers have become part of our extended family and we love them dearly.”
Kelly M. – Grandmother of dancer
“District Dance is a second home for my daughter. Not only has it been a huge boost to her confidence but she has made some of her “best friends “. District Dance not only teaches the technique of dance but focuses on the whole child. Watching my daughter grow as a dancer and a young lady is a blessing. I am grateful for District Dance!”
Heather D. – Parent
“My two children have been dancing at District Dance for the past 5 years. I have seen tremendous growth in their confidence, self-esteem, and poise. The dance teachers are patient, knowledgeable in dance and bring out the best of their students. The middle and end of the year performances are classy and well put together. We feel proud to be part of the District Dance family.”
