OVERVIEW

We believe a combined academic and performing arts curriculum, located at DADA, will benefit young aspiring dancers to foster a life-long love of learning.  The Debbie Allen Middle School academic program will have the foundation for students to have a superior and quality arts education experience in dance and the theatre arts.  The academic program is designed to provide a challenging, rigorous, and exciting curriculum that will propel students to excel and be successful at the high school level.   


The Debbie Allen Middle School is an independent, tuition-based, private school for aspiring young dancers in grades 6 through 8. Tuition for the 2022-2023 school year will be $25,000. In August of 2021, DADA began their middle school academic program starting with students in the 6th grade.  In August of 2022, grade 7 was added followed by grade 8 this past August. Each grade level will be capped at 15 students with an annual total enrollment of 45 students.

 

All classes are held on-site at the RHIMES PERFORMING ARTS CENTER 1850 S. Manhattan Pl., Los Angeles, CA 90019.
