You have two options:
1) Use an archiving program like "BetterZip" or similar which allows you to compress files into a ZIP archive and add a password. This way without the password they cannot see your files.
2) There is a wonderful program for the Mac called Knox. Knox allows you to keep a personal, encrypted "disk" in effect where you can store anything you want. Like a zip file with a password it is secure and without the password cannot be opened. However unlike a zip file, when you do open it and supply the correct password it looks like a disk drive that you can save and read files to/from. Great program. You cannot directly store this on Dropbox however once you have data in a Knox archive you can back it up to dropbox.
