Detroit Windsor Dance Academy

The Detroit-Windor Dance Academy is a non-profit organization established in 1984
by Debra Jean White-Hunt and her husband Bruce Hunt under the belief that if a
community could become re-connected through dance, it would create a community
of healthy, happy and productive citizens. The DWDA has classes available for all age
groups, from toddlers to adults. Their classes include many genres of dance
including ballet, modern, jazz/funk, hip-hop, liturgical, belly dance, and tap. The
DWDA also offers programs to serve the Metropolitan area including Teen
Mentoring Employment, Community Outreach and Education, Ministerial Outreach, and Nutritional Workshops.
