The popular showcase of talent, So We Think We Can Dance is back for its ninth year at the Darien Arts Center, where the student-run production has had sold-out audiences for the past eight years.

Totally produced by DAC dance students, ages 10 to 18, the show returns to the DAC Weatherstone Studio with performances on Saturday, Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 2 at 2 p.m.
Eighteen DAC student choreographers with 40 dancers, manage all stages of creation and execution, and choreograph and perform approximately 18 dances that encompass many different styles of dance.
The DAC dance program is proud to provide this one of kind opportunity for students to produce a show from start to finish. So We Think We Can Dance was the brainchild of past DAC students, some who have moved on to pursue careers in dance.
They envisioned using the skills they had developed from years of dancing at the DAC, to express their individuality in their very own dances, while having a chance to shine.
It has proven to be a great success, beyond selling out audiences. According to Amy Allen, DAC executive director, “So We Think We Can Dance truly fills us with pride. Our students utilize years of practice, to create, choreograph and produce an entertaining show.
It empowers creative thinking and builds confidence. They really put their hearts into this, as well as a lot of time and effort. I can’t wait to see this year’s performances.” DAC dance students, Samantha Gombos, Mackenzie Swift and Eva Larino are producing the 2020 show.
