Our Mission

Debbie Allen Dance Academy (DADA) is a non-profit organization committed to expanding the reach of dance and theater arts for young people in the greater Los Angeles area, and the world, enriching, inspiring and transforming their lives.

OUR PRINCIPLES

The principles of DADA are simple and clear.  Arts education empowers and defines self-esteem, discipline, creativity and self-confidence.  These principles will become a part of each student whether they pursue a professional career or not.  This is for LIFE.

Our Legacy

DADA has become world renowned for its Faculty, for its commitment to furthering the Art of Dance, and for the incredible young artists who have emerged.

 

“In places around the world where we do not speak the same language, or even understand that we pray to the same God, we dance to the same beat, that is “The One.”

-Ms. Debbie Allen on “Cultural Diversity in Dance Education”
