Diversity. Equity. Inclusion. They’re more than just words for us. They’re
the hard-and-fast principles guiding how we build our Dupree Dance team
as well as an inclusive culture that encourages, supports and celebrates
the diversity amongst all our attendees. We know that different ideas,
perspectives and backgrounds inspire a stronger and more creative space
that connects us closer to our faculty, clients and the communities we
serve. We are committed to adhering to an environment where every
dancer feels safe and equal.
