The Dance Cooperative

The Dance Cooperative The Dance Cooperative is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization that offers affordable classes for all ages and experience levels. The Dance Cooperative is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization committed to nurturing the dance community by providing affordable classes, rehearsal space and performance opportunities for those under-served artistically, culturally, and economically in the greater Wilmington area.

We are somewhat different from the current trend in dance studios in how we approach dance. We strive to build well-rounded artists without fostering competition among dancers in our classrooms. Our goal is to expose the dancers to several styles and techniques and train them to find their strengths and individuality. Although we are predominately a modern dance studio, we focus on the whole dancer.

Operating as usual
