We learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. One becomes in some area an athlete of God.

~Martha Graham


BC Dance is committed to fostering an appreciation of the art of dance music and visual art within the Tucson community.  We are dedicated to providing the highest artistic quality of instruction by operating a school for all age and skill levels.  We offer five performance tracks, the Pink Diamonds and Teen Company for students interested in experiencing dance in the beginning through intermediate level, and Ballet Ensemble, BC Dance Company (BCDC), BCRhythm (tap), and BCrew (hip-hop), and a pre-professional company with performance opportunities for the career-oriented student at the advanced level.  We also offer recreational classes for the student interested in dancing for fun or exercise, and drop-in classes.

We place students in classes by age and skill level. Our performance teams are also by age and skill level. With all classes we use a placement period to make sure it’s a fit for both the dancer’s skill level and enjoyment. After this period, if your dancer or the instructors feel that the student might be suited in another class we will make another placement recommendation, and your dancer is able to try that class for free, until we find the right fit for everyone.

Fall 2017 we are introducing our performance troupe: Diamonds & Co. Designed for all dancers ages 5+ with no prior dance background required, just a love for movement and expression.

This troupe will learn a dance with U of A Pomline Captain Ashley Yewell, receive there very own age appropriate costume and pompoms to perform at venues throughout Tucson, Oro Valley and possibly a Phoenix Suns Game! Minimal company requirements with only 2 days a week, 4 hours of dance classes and rehearsal time. (Weekends Free). Register today! Space is limited due to the popularity of the program. Programs begins August 7th.
