Create. Imagine. Explore.

To create, imagine, and explore—this is the daily practice of the arts at DCD—an essential part of educating the whole child that builds a strong set of creative skills as the foundation for a lifetime of learning.
DCD has a long and rich tradition in the arts. We believe that effective self-expression comes from commitment, hard work, and exploration. A solid foundation is established early and built upon yearly, giving children the opportunity to develop confidence, creativity, and appreciation of the artistic process whether the end product is a visual creation or a stage performance.

Building Interests and Supporting Passions...

A committed and talented faculty intricately joins the arts with academic themes in fresh, exhilarating ways, nurturing and developing new skills and helping children to find their creative selves.
