From hip hop to ballet, join us for a variety of dance classes that are equal parts educational and fun for all ages.
Founded in 2020, Desert Dance Collective is a performance-based dance studio with two locations in north Tucson. With years of experience and a genuine love for teaching, our goals are:
To provide excellent dance classes that are equal parts educational and fun for all students
To create performance opportunities for kids, teens, and adults to shine onstage
At DDC, we believe that the best movers are dynamic, determined, and confident people. We strive to instill these three key foundations in every class so that each student can understand what makes them unique, how to hone their individuality, and why they should be proud of it!

"My daughter started out doing one class and then did 2. She is now doing 3 classes and would do more if she didn't do other activities. We absolutely love the Desert Dance family and Ms. Lauren is AMAZING! She teaches confidence and makes dance fun."
