Where Dreams Come Alive…
When you come to DHDS, you are entering the world of one of Calvert County’s most respected, accomplished and sought after studios with over 50 years of dance excellence.
Diane Herbert’s life has been enthusiastically dedicated to dance. This dedication shines through the students. DHDS instructors take classes throughout the year from many world renowned educators.
DHDS students benefit from a safe, caring, compassionate studio where its dedication and long-standing commitment to every student inspires them to be the very best they can be.
The performing arts nurture children’s natural talents and enthusiasm, encouraging creativity and personal expression. We feel that dancing should be more than a class; it should be a lifetime experience that builds memories that last forever.
DHDS has performed at Walt Disney World’s Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom and Downtown Disney parks since 1994. Disney World scouts were so impressed with these performances, the group was invited to perform at Disney’s 25th Anniversary Gala, Disney’s 100 Years of Magic Celebration and Disney’s Millennium Celebration as well as performing on Thanksgiving Day in 2012 at Disney’s Performing Arts Stage.
DHDS students have also been chosen to perform on numerous cruise ships since 1994, Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean and the Big Red Boat. DHDS has been excited and proud to represent Maryland and DHDS on each performance. DHDS encourages the whole family to join and many families have been a part of these performances.
DHDS also performs locally for the Calvert County Fair, nursing homes, Kings Dominion, Six Flags, Cherry Blossom Festival, Washington Redskins Spirit Explosion, on cable TV and for seasonal shows such as Lunch with Santa. DHDS has performed in charity events as well, for example, Children’s Hospital, March of Dimes, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, the Jerry Lewis Telethon, Veterans Association, Toys for Tots and many more.
DHDS prides itself in being a family oriented studio and looks forward to having you join its dance family!
