Thank you for your interest in the Darby’s Dancers program at Misty’s Dance Unlimited. Darby’s Dancers is a 501(c)(3) organization founded by the parents of Darby Jones of Huntsville, Alabama. Darby’s Dancers provides an opportunity for children with special needs to participate in the performing arts through dance education. Charitable donations to “A Chance to Dance” 501(c)(3) provide the funding for Darby’s Dancers at Misty’s Dance Unlimited (MDU).
At once-a-week classes, Darby's Dancers learn various styles of dance in a fun, encouraging atmosphere. Dancers in the program gain confidence, coordination, strength and lifelong friends, all while feeling like a star. DD also provides volunteer opportunities for teens. Our student volunteers learn important lessons in responsibility and friendship by providing one-on-one assistance to each dancer.
DD classes are taught by Miss Denise Meyer and take place in donated studio space at Misty’s Dance Unlimited. The charitable contributions of youth volunteers, dance instructors, community dance studios and local businesses allow DD to provide dance classes, classroom attire and recital costumes to special needs dancers at no cost to their parents.
2019-20 Darby’s Dancers Classes will be held on Fridays:
5:30-6:00 PM - Younger Group (Ages 3-7)
6:15-6:45 PM - Older Group (Ages 8+)
Classes begin on Friday, Sept. 27, 2019. Dancers will meet their buddy and get fitted for classroom attire and shoes.
The season ends with a Spring Recital performance in May 2020.
