D2 Performing Company
D2 Performing Company was formed in 2011 as a branch of DDA. D2 offers even more to our students with additional productions, special event performances, and competitive dance opportunities. The company is an additional commitment but is open to EVERYONE ages 5 and up at all skill levels. If your dancer likes to perform, then D2 is for you!
One highlight of D2 Performing Company is the “dan-sical” stage production that takes place every fall. Company members have performed in our D2 productions of Snow White, The Lion King, Mary Poppins, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and coming this fall Annie!
In addition to our productions, our company has performed at various events such as Schaumburg Boomers Baseball games, Northwestern University Football and Basketball games, Great America Dance Fest, Harlem Globetrotters halftimes, Chicago Bulls games, Walt Disney World, special showcases, and local festivals. We also make community outreach appearances at local assisted living centers and special needs centers. D2 company members also attend dance conventions and work with award winning choreographers.
D2 Competition Team
D2 Competition Team began officially competing in 2012. Though relatively new to the competitive world, we’ve formed an amazingly strong team! D2 regularly places in top overalls as well as winning many special judges choice awards. Most recently during our 2017 season, our dancers brought home numerous 1st & 2nd places, “top studio” awards, “top dance/score of the entire competition” awards, several special choreography and technique awards, and “Miss Dance” awards at every competition we attended. D2 Competition Team has attended two National Championships in recent years. Both years, we were awarded not only 1st places with the majority of our dances but we also earned invitations to re-compete in the Grand Championships where all ages and styles come together. D2 was awarded the Grand Prize both times! Way to go D2! We head to Nationals this upcoming summer as well with high hopes of continuing that pattern. We are a strong team with unique, creative choreography! Our dancers continue to fill the auditoriums with their immense passion and expression at every competition! This combination makes D2 an amazing competitive team!
D2 Performing Company and Competition Team run July through the following June. Registration is during the spring of each year. For more information on D2, please contact our office. D2- Dream it, Dance it!!
