Downtown Dance Collective



For 10 years, DDC has been a joyful, creative, fluid and multi-functional space in the heART​ of Missoula’s vibrant downtown neighborhood. It is a place where artists of all disciplines can collaborate with others to share their crafts and passions with the community. Our programs provide the opportunity for Every​ Body, ​Every​ Ability to​ grow, physically, spiritually and culturally through ​classes, workshops, ​performances​​, and art exhibitions.​DDC is located inside the historic LaFlesch building. The 130 year old brick, maple floors, and high ceilings provide a warm and inviting space for weddings, meetings, fundraisers and other various celebrations. ​ DDC offers a wide variety of programs to make the performing arts accessible to all. We host Community Classes that are free to the public reaching 100’s of participants a year. Our First Friday Series provides fledgling and established ​artist​s a beautiful location in the heART of downtown to showcase their work, while taking a very small commission when work is sold, providing them a springboard for future work. In 2011, we founded the AiR Project, Artist in Residence, that since its inception,has provided over $30,000 in space for artists to create, collaborate and perform original work. One of those AiR Artists, became our first Company in Residence, and now has a very successful modern dance company in Missoula. We are very proud of Joy French and Bare Bait Dance Company for being such an important facet of Missoula’s cultural experience. Our weekly schedule has Dance Fitness, Technique and Social Dance classes where our adult participants make new friends, build lasting connections,and learn new skills. ​ We’ve recently expanded our DDC Kids Program, where the emphasis is not on competition or performance, but rather self confidence, body awareness,cultural education, and empathy. For more information on the programs the DDC provides, please browse around the web site, but don’t ever hesitate to call. We are always open to new ideas and love to hear your feedback!
