What Our Clients Say:

This place is amazing! Every time I pick my daughter up she always screams "I want to go again, it's so much fun mommy!" Whenever I have a question it gets answered so fast and the info is always so helpful, the instructors are so friendly, and I know my children are safe here! Thank you CVDA!!!

"Dance skills are life skills"! We have been a part of the CVDA dance family for 5 years. We chose this for our daughter over school sports and we have no regrets. The teachers are well trained, attentive, kind, and positive. Our daughter has excelled in many areas in and outside of dance. This is largely a result of the opportunities she has had and the amazing role models (teachers and staff) at CVDA. Dance skills really are life skills.

It's hard to put into words how amazing this dance studio is. They don't only teach dance at CVDA, Kristen and her team teach their students life skills like respect, confidence and how to give back to the community. We started our daughter in ballet when she was 5. It was amazing to watch our very timid shy daughter go into her beginners ballet class and come out with her head held high and a smile from ear to ear!

CVDA may be a dance studio, but what it excels at most of all is being an example of what it means for a business to exhibit virtue. That's not to say they don't have excellent training, they do - the instructors are talented, patient, and dedicated, and they have the trophies to prove it. Yet when you sign up for classes at CVDA, Kristen (owner) doesn't promise awards and scholarships, she promises your child will learn the skills necessary to be a positive, productive human being. Or as she puts it, "dance skills are life skills". As one example, they model positive contribution by actively serving and fundraising for the community every year.

It has been such a positive outlet for my kiddos, and gave them something to look forward to every week, even during the shutdown. I have been so impressed with the passion all the instructors pour into each and every class.

We found our home and second family. Each girl is ushered in and apart of a community that becomes family. The skills learned are way more than just dance related.
