SCDC prides itself for having a first class dance studio in Lexington, SC.
SCDC is located in a state of the art, 10,ooo square-foot facility that was built with safety in mind for all of our dancers. We have achieved this by utilizing custom-built, sprung-floor systems with slip resistant marley surfaces. All of our dance rooms are equipped with stretch bars, safety mats, and sprung floors. As a result, and with the help of our professional, highly trained teaching staff, SCDC provides a safe, professional atmosphere where children, young teens, and adults can develop a strong technical dance background — as well as experience the creativity of the arts — in a facility that is above the industry standards.
SCDC’s owner and artistic director, Danyele Gardner, has created an award winning dance studio in Lexington SC that is helping children become the best they can be
by empowering them to be goal-oriented and disciplined learners through SCDC’s dance and performing-arts curriculum. At SCDC, It is our vision and company mission to give our students not only quality dance instruction, including various exposures to world famous guest dance artists,but to teach life skills that prepare them for real world experiences. South Carolina Dance Company’s dance programs enhance our student’s lives by providing leadership and team-work opportunities, a positive-attitude approach to dancing and life challenges, productive work-ethic skills, and community service learning experiences. These developmental attributes are consistently incorporated into our dance classes. We believe this gives our students strengthened self-esteem and self-confidence values, and as a result, our students learn through dance that hard work, practice, and discipline give them the tools that are necessary to experience success in all aspects of their lives.
