The dance program at Deborah Mason Performing Arts Center
is designed for students interested in exploring various styles of dance instruction. Deborah Mason Performing Arts Center offers an array of performing arts classes and levels in ballet, en pointe, modern dance, tap classes, jazz, musical theater, and hip hop dance for children and adults in the Greater Boston area.
DMPAC is a prominent institution in the community and is highly regarded on both the east and west coast by casting agents and choreographers for producing dancers! DMPAC is committed to excellence in teaching, learning, and developing dancers in many disciplines. Our program embraces what is current and innovative in the field of dance. Our renowned faculty and esteemed visiting artists transform our dancers into empowered artists with a unique individual voice. The faculty members are engaged with teaching and push the boundaries of dance for students who are excited to work.
The dance school is directed by Deborah Mason Dudley and offers dance classes throughout the academic year. Students at the dance school are given performance opportunities, including an annual recital in June at the John Hancock Hall in Boston, MA.
Our more advanced students are part of a pre-professional dance and youth performance company - Cambridge Youth Dance Program // CYDP Dance Company. Students must audition for company placement and fulfill an intensive dance curriculum tailored to an individual dancer's needs.
