Dance Alliance of Beck Center (DABC)

DABC is a volunteer organization that originated from parents of children enrolled in dance classes that wanted to make their children’s experience the best it could be.  We are so pleased to now include not only parents, but grandparents, alumni, friends, and people who just love dance.

All of our fundraising is done in an effort to keep the cost, to our families who have children that dance at Beck Center, as affordable as possible.  We do this to help off-set the cost of performances, provide additional educational experiences through master classes, award yearly scholarships. We have also contributed to funding equipment, costumes, lighting, storage organization, meals during performances, and a new dance floor.

We are proud to be an integral part of the dance department at Beck Center.  If you are interested in becoming a member, or would like more information, contact DABC President Michelle Ellis.
