Founded in Dayton, Ohio in 2011 by Artistic Director Thomas L. Troutman, The Dayton Dance Workshop is a Non-Profit community performing arts organization designed to offer equal opportunity dance & theatre training to youth and families no matter their level of experience. DDW is in our 8th operating season and continues to offer workshops and choreography intensives for dancers 6 and up.
The Dayton Dance Workshop specializes in one-day workshops and 6-12week choreography intensives. All workshops have a theme and challenge students to learn choreography at a moderate pace along with learning various techniques. The program has grown in the Trotwood and Dayton, Ohio Community since the first season and is back in 2018 with new programs!
The Dayton Dance Workshop has provide excellent shows over the past few years! Their students are very talented and you can't tell that some of them have never danced before. They appear professional as if they've been dancing for years. I highly recommend catching one of their workshops and participating or just coming to one of the super dynamic productions!
When coming to The Dayton Dance Workshop Inc. typically, students go through a series of placement/evaluation classes together. In this first run of classes, the students take on challenges in various techniques and exercises that help our Artistic Director and teaching staff gauge what skill level the student already possess and we work to build on those skills throughout the workshop or series.
My training and education in perfroming arts spans over 22 years with experience in Theatre, Musicals, Acting, Professional Dance, International Tours, and Live concerts.
