CDE is a community of dancers & parents who encourage and support one another, helping student to grow into strong dancers with exceptional skill & heart.

At CDE, we want to help create an environment where students feel safe to push themselves, try new things, and have high aspirations.  Our goal is to help every student grow, learn, and be their best!   Our staff is dedicated to teaching proper technique in all dance forms, along with using age appropriate terminology and dance moves.  CDE is proud to have a staff that is so 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.  CDE enjoys participating in local events, collecting or fundraising for local charities, and performing all around the community. Let us know 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.”
