Tough Stuff

2020-2021 Season

This year might have some challenging moments. We might have to create dance spaces out of our living rooms and figure out how to dance in masks when in the studio, but it is these tests of our commitment that make us stronger. We are learning new skills, taking on new projects, and rising to the challenge. We are made of tough stuff and we cannot wait to show you just how strong CDT dancers truly are.


From Home


Everyone has different comfort levels during these times, but we are dedicated to keeping your dancer moving! Dance at home options are available for Levels Primary - Level V (ages 4 and up). Dancers will sign on through Zoom each week and practice LIVE with their dance teacher. It's the same syllabus as our in-studio classes, but tailored for an online, at-home platform. When you are ready to join us in the studio, you can hop back into your appropriate level. No time lost!


Enjoy the Nooga Nutcracker

Film from home

The Nooga Nutcracker 2020 Movie premiere was a great success at the Swingin' Midway Drive in on Saturday, December 19th

Now you can purchase the movie and enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Videos can be purchased for $25 on the Dance Studio Pro Account (click here to create or sign-in), or by calling the office. You will be emailed a download and streaming option in an email sent no more than 24 hours after purchase. Available through January 6th.

Our present day Nutcracker has always highlighted our great city, but this year Chattanooga Dance Theatre is pulling together local business and organizations to create a festive movie.


Filmed around the Scenic City and staring Pennsylvania Ballet principal dancer, Sterling Baca as Sugar Plum Cavalier, Andrea Solis as Sugar Plum Fairy, Chloe Russell as Snow Queen, Caio Godoy as Snow King, Emily Schebler as Mouse Queen. Filming locations include The Edwin Hotel, the carousel room of the Chattanooga Zoo, the Tennessee Aquarium, the Southern Belle Riverboat, The Grandview on Lookout Mountain, the Chattanooga Choo-Choo, and the patio of The Bluffview Bakery. Many thanks to our videographer: Domonique of M. D. Whit Productions
