Dance Classes | Academic Year 2022-2023

Darlington's Dance Program provides quality dance education to students of all ages in a fun, encouraging and supportive environment. Classes include Hip Hop, Ballet, Modern, Tap, Jazz and more!

Students gain an appreciation of dance and valuable performing experience through participation in weekly classes, holiday in-class performances, and the annual 4 Arts Dance Recital in the Spring. Semester classes & workshops are also available throughout the year -- no competitions, light commitment, lots of fun! We are located in Garnet Valley and convenient to Glen Mills, Chadds Ford, Wilmington, and West Chester.

ALL RECITAL CLASSES: Classes meet weekly Monday, September 12, 2022 – June 9, 2023 plus the dress rehearsal and dance recital. Last day to register for recital classes: January 15th

Because we are a member-supported center for the arts, a non-refundable Family Membership of $75, valid from September 1 through August 31, is required to enroll in all activities (exceptions are noted and include all workshops) and will be pro-rated to $40 for activities beginning after March 1. The Family Membership may be tax-deductible and allows Darlington to maintain facilities, provide excellent administration, care for our instruments and studios, and fulfill our mission to provide Every Art for Everyone.

The health of our students and staff at Darlington are of utmost importance.   Please click on the link to learn more about our policies set in place to ensure proper safety and social distancing protocols onsite.

Why Darlington?
"It is FUN, not competitive!"

"The focus is on the dancers and the art of dance"

"After four years of ballet with [our dance teacher], we just can't say enough about her! Our daughter adores her. And not just because she's "nice"... My daughter sees the value of attention to detail, personal effort, dedication, and the beauty of dance because of [our teacher]'s high standards and good teaching." - Angela, Chadds Ford

"Creativity in dance classes, small class sizes"

"The instructor. She kept my child engaged and wanting to learn more. It brought a tear to my eye watching my child practice her heart out and wanting to go back to class to show her teacher what she has learned. You a have phenomenal teacher that truly is passionate about what she does and it shows in each child that takes her class."
