Want to be part of our award winning Dynamics Dance Company?
The Dynamics Dance Company started in 1987 with just 2 dancers, Miss Michelle & Miss Corinna. Since then we’ve grown to over 100 dancers and almost 100 routines each season. We have placed 1st among some of the most competitive teams in the country and have been awarded several Technique, Choreography and Special Awards along the way. The Dynamics Dance Company is a family within our larger PDH Family. Not only do the girls get to bond over a common goal but they make life long memories that any of our Senior class students can tell you are hard to leave behind.
We expect that students give a full commitment to the company when selected.
