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.
