Darby Does it Better

Darby Emma Jones (1999-2013) was born to Patrick and Valerie Jones of Huntsville, Alabama. Born with Down syndrome, a heart defect and leukemia, Darby lived a life full of passion, kindness, bravery, optimism, perseverance and loyalty.

Darby never met a person she did not like. She saw no differences in people regardless of their age, race, appearance, or disability. She was an avid dancer, musician, reader and writer. And Darby LOVED to dance!

She never had a bad day, despite her challenges. Darby’s life was short in duration but packed with a passion for living, loving and making others happy. Her dancing represented the job she felt in her heart and the impact she made on people of all ages continues today.

Darby’s Dancers was created to carry on Darby’s beautiful legacy and bring joy to as many children with special needs as possible.

Darby’s infectious smile and twinkling eyes are shining down from Heaven as she spreads her seeds of love and joy to all our future stars!

Darby's Dancers Gear

Revolution PULL-ON SKIRT

Revolution Dance has a wonderful line of sensory friendly dance wear that would be great for our students.  These dance wear items and costumes have been thoroughly tested and are specifically designed to be worn by children who have sensory issues.  Most of our dancers fall in this category and we need to be mindful of their needs when we are choosing dance attire for them. This will make for a happier dancer who is comfortable (and cute!).

"Our goal is to give every child the tools to discover all that dance has to offer."
