Welcome to The Davis Center. For the past 50 years, the Davis Center dance studio has been a fixture in the Washington, DC community. Founded by Beatrice Davis-Williams, the center has trained thousands of young people in ballet, tap, modern, Hip Hop and other dance forms.
The Davis Center aims to instill in its students an enduring appreciation for the arts while at the same time helping them to develop perseverance, self-confidence, respect for others and the ability to work as a team.
50th Anniversary Celebration
This is a special year for The Davis Center and its founder Beatrice Davis-Williams. It marks the dance studio’s 50th anniversary!
We’ll be celebrating that milestone with a series of activities, most notably a scholarship brunch on Saturday, November 2 at the University of the District of Columbia where we’ll be saluting Mrs. Davis-Williams, supporters of the Davis Center, and the dance studio’s many, many alumni.
