Staff | About | Dance Arts Centre

DAC owner, Jill Rieken, takes a unique approach to dance education. Jill's philosophy is simple, "Character first."

 

She strongly believes that when students lay a foundation of perseverance, respect, and teamwork first, everything they attempt afterward, including the art of dance, is completed with excellence.

It is this philosophy that sets DAC dancers apart and sets them up for success for the rest of their lives.

 

DAC is not only a place where beautiful dancers are trained, it is also a place where students develop into young women and men of strong character.
