Four years ago, Ms. Allen established an official performing arm of DADA. She chose the most dynamic students from the all Academy levels – Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced – and rotated faculty to create works that would be performance ready. This group originally met once a week. Ms. Allen then expanded the Ensemble to different groups meeting three times a week.
Performances have ranged from The Hollywood Bowl to So You Think You Can Dance. This year, we will return to the original concept and have one ensemble group that meets once a week. Ms. Allen will hand pick the students that will participate and not only rotate the faculty but also rotate the students.
