If you'd like an executive summary, this is from the whitepaper (worth reading):

Dash: A Privacy-Centric Crypto-Currency
[Dash is a] crypto-currency based on Bitcoin, the work of Satoshi Nakamoto, with various improvements such as a two-tier incentivized network, known as the Masternode network. Included are other improvements such as PrivateSend, for increasing fungibility and InstantSend which allows instant transaction confirmation without a centralized authority.
