My girls look forward to every class, it’s always the highlight of their week when it’s their turn to go to dance!

As new residence in this area we were looking for a dance studio that not only provided excellent training, but also had a family friendly feeling. The first moment we stepped into the studio we felt welcome and Ms. Andrea went out of her way to sit and talk with me about the classes offered and how the curriculum is structured. She talked with me in length about classes that would be a good fit for my daughters, and made both me and my girls feel so comfortable. It's been so wonderful not only getting to know the staff, but also see my daughters thriving and making wonderful friends. It's been a wonderful experience!

My daughter, Shelby, has been taking dance lesson at Chattanooga Dance Theatre for the pas six years. We love CDT! Ms. Christine, Mr. Frank, and all the teachers are incredible! CDT has been a wonderful, positive place for Shelby to learn, grow, and mature during her teenage years. Shelby has formed lifelong friendships at CDT and is now prepared to double major in Dance and Exercise Health Science at Middle Tennessee State University. Thank you CDT
