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!
