Chehalem Valley Dance Academy is committed to providing high quality dance training in an inclusive and family friendly environment. At CVDA, our motto is dance skills are life skills. We inspire, empower, and educate our students to become great dancers but also to be conscious, compassionate, and happy contributing community members.
We offer classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Musical Theatre, Tumbling, Hip Hop, Pointe, Technique, and Aerial for ages 2 and up. Our programs focus on developing life skills as well as dance skills for the recreational, competitive, and pre-professional dancer. We employ the most qualified instructors that share the same pillars of leadership and expertise in their field. At Chehalem Valley Dance Academy, we believe that through dance training, every person can realize their true potential. Our session runs from September 10th through May 25th and culminates in our Annual Showcase. Dancers will have one costume per class to purchase that will be theirs to keep following the showcase. As a family of CVDA, you are invited to participate in Parent-Watch Weeks, Bring-A-Friend Weeks, The Nutcracker, First Friday Art Walk activities, and many more events at the studio and out in the community. Joining CVDA will grow every person’s self-confidence, discipline, respect, perseverance, leadership, active listening skills, and ability to set goals and achieve them.
