About Host Studio: Dancers Center for Training

Dancers Center for Training was founded by a group of professional dance instructors and performers that saw a need in the community for dancer training that went beyond the traditional recital and competition model. Spearheaded by Beth Craig Hall and headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky in St. Matthew's Station, DCT opened its doors in July of 2018. Based on the same model and principals as its sister company ACTORS CENTER FOR TRAINING, DCT trains at professional levels with a practical approach to the performing arts industry. DCT believes that if you train at the professional level you will help nurture self-confidence, artistry, and professionalism. The student will have skills that go beyond plies and time steps.
