The art of dance is a wonderful gift; it helps develop rhythm, coordination, balance, and posture while promoting confidence, character, self-esteem, and physical fitness. Thus, our mission is to provide an environment in which students can explore various forms of movement in a fun and creative way while fostering technique and skills.

Competition Team

Devonshire Dance Competition Team is for dancers that want to take their dance training a step further. Dancers interested in the team must be enrolled in a ballet class and a technique class in the genre in which they are competing at Devonshire. Dancers will participate in four regional competitions and must be wiling to practice above and beyond. This will be a year-round commitment ending with a performance in the annual recital and at Skokie's Backlot Bash. Auditions take place annually in late summer.

Dance Ensemble

Dance_Ensemble_logoDDE members will perform and share their talents with the community. They will continue their training with a variety of choreographers in a creative environment. DDE dancers are required to take a technique class. Auditions will be held twice annually in the fall and winter.
