Program Polices, Procedures, and General Information
The Dubuque Dream Center believes in the promotion of more than just music and performances. We expect our Artist to view themselves at STUDENT Artist who display Character.
D.D.C. Music & Performing Arts seeks to instill and influence responsibility, respect, and representing Dream Center values for the team, organization, coaches, and families.
The D.D.C. also seeks to instill the value of education in each student to assist students in maximizing their individual academic potential.
We recognize that students will be at different levels and developmental stages; socially, academically, and in their Performing Arts skills. Therefore, we make an effort to place each student in an environment that creates a feeling of self-worth, self-confidence & achievement.
We understand that part of influencing character development and the value of education in students require utilizing strategies that provide extra Motivation.
The extra motivation we utilize is the participation, playing time, or performance opportunities we provide to students through performance competition or showcase opportunities through Performing Arts. We call these opportunities SPARKS, which assist in motiving students towards Academic Achievement and Character Development.
Emphasis is also placed on sportsmanship, teamwork and hard work with winning as a result not the focus.
PLAY Hard! // PLAY Smart! // PLAY Together! // HAVE Fun!
