|Welcome to SSDC
Dream to Dance? Dance with Us!
Silver Spring Dance Conservatory is a nonprofit community school of dance founded by Colleen Schmidt and Nancy Nehr in 1997. When the partners established SSDC, they did so with the belief that a positive and supportive setting lends itself to superior physical, emotional, social, and artistic development. SSDC proudly maintains that philosophy to this day.
SSDC originated with a focus on Modern and Ballet technique. Today SSDC offers classes in Ballet, Pointe, Modern, Jazz, Theater Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, and Yoga. Our instructors are some of the best in Lancaster, having studied and performed all over the world, from London to Las Vegas and New York to New Zealand.
Our season runs from September until May, and we offer summer classes from June through August. Private lessons and studio rental are also available. Please contact our director for more information.
