Faculty 2020-2021

At CDA we believe very strongly that our success is measured by the success of our students.

Our team is made up of highly trained professionals that are active in the dance community as performers, choreographers and educators who are dedicated to providing the best dance education for our students. They participate annually in professional development opportunities, both as teachers and as dancers themselves so they can continue to offer our students the most up-to-date, safe, and effective teaching practices.
