We are getting ready for 2015 Dare to Dance Convention! Please check back in September for date and location.


Dear Dance Enthusiast,

The next Dare to Dance Convention is being held at the brand new Rancho Mirage Performing Arts School 6 miles east of Palm Springs, CA on Saturday April 26, 2014. This unique convention will be host to 22 different classes of dance for ages 8-100 years young! It will include not only the “performing art” dances such as Jazz, Hip Hop and Contemporary, but also the “recreational style” dances such as Salsa, Line Dancing, Multicultural and Ballroom!

Come take a class (or classes), perform for us onstage, audition for a new DVD (all ages and ability levels welcomed), or dance in a Flash Mob! (Learn the Flash Mob and location of the Flash Mob performance will be announced).

I’ve been to many conventions in my life and I am excited to offer a setting where the beginner will feel as “safe” and comfortable as the advanced dancer. My goal is to promote a community spirit where we are dedicated to the physical, social, emotional and creative spirit in everybody, no matter their age or ability level. Let’s celebrate dance and reconnect people instead of competing.

And it’s affordable with great rates! Check out our website for photos and videos of our wonderful experience last year. Speaking of instructors, wait until you see out line up! We are bringing to you not only the best choreographers, but the best TEACHERS who care about YOU and dance and making the world a better place.

So you are invited to join us for something new. Come for fun, come for fitness, but most importantly, come for you!

Let’s Dance!
