Our TEACHING STAFF has more than 100 years of combined experience in dance education. We choose to teach intimately sized classes, allowing effective student – teacher ratios conducive to thorough learning!

Understanding the different dance STYLES that are offered:

BALLET – The foundation for any dancer. Ballet classes teach positioning and poise to even 2 yr olds. BALLET ONLY CLASSES: After age 6, students must have prior Ballet experience.

FLOOR GYMNASTICS – We teach floor work on mats only, consisting of everything from cartwheels to aerials. Our Floor Gymnastics program is geared toward building strength, flexibility, and balance to support the dancer.

HIP HOP – Street style of dance used to incorporate rhythm and coordination. Hip Hop has grown to be such a popular form of dance in studios nationwide.

LYRICAL – An expressive style of dance incorporating ballet and jazz movements to interpret the lyrics of a song.

JAZZ – Combines ballet basics with expressive movement. Jazz can be done to upbeat music and incorporates a lot of stretch as well.

TAP – Tap is art of making sounds and rhythms with your feet to upbeat music. Tap class can be a good workout.

An excellent, fun, and loving place


“My oldest daughter has been with CDC for 3 yrs doing recreational dance and my family couldn’t be happier! She has grown so much as a dancer and loves Ms. Diana. This year she added Gymnastics as a class and is excited to be with Ms. Sam and Ms. Taylor. She loves going to classes and always looks forward to Recital day. I also have a 3 yr old who grew up seeing her sister dance and asked me to dance this year. She is eager to go to class and loves Ms. Anna! All teachers are so loving, they truly care for the children, and teach them how to be great dancers. Ms. Sue and the other staff at the front desk are very friendly and professional and are always ready to help and please the customer! The communication between the studio and families is wonderful always through e-mails, Facebook updates, or handouts. This studio is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone who wants an excellent, fun, and loving place for their child to learn and grow! We feel like a family even though my girls don’t do competition. Thank You!!!!!”
