Our Mission

CDE is a community of dancers, parents & staff, located in Garner, NC, who encourage and support one another. Our goal is to help students to grow into strong dancers with exceptional skill & heart.

We want to create an environment where students feel safe to push themselves, try new things, and have high aspirations.  In doing so, we aim to help every student grow, learn, and be their best! Our staff is dedicated to teaching proper technique in all dance forms. We also use age appropriate terminology and dance moves.  CDE is proud to have a staff that is committed and enthusiastic about helping students become well-rounded and high quality dancers.

CDE knows the importance of community and family, therefore, we strive to create real relationships with students and parents.  We also want our dance family to be a part of our local community by giving back to the area that has supported us for so long.  Our dancers enjoy participating in local events in the Garner area, collecting or fundraising for local charities, and performing all around the community. Contact us if you would like us to perform at your next event!

“My hope is that when they leave the studio, they feel confident, valued, and loved.”
