In-Studio Classes Happening Now

Children's Classes // Adult Classes // Performance Company
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.
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!
In-Person OR Virtual Experiences
Enjoy an afternoon with Giselle and her friends with crafts, performances, dancing, photo opts, tea and cookies!
March 7th 2:30-4:00
Perfect for audience members ages 3-9 who want a special Giselle experience. Dancers will paint a pointe shoe, decorate their own flower crown, watch Giselle dance with her friends, practice their own peasant dances and take pictures on the set of Giselle. Tea and Cookies will be served outside in to-go fashion. The in-person party will be honoring the TN pledge by wearing masks, maintaining 6 feet distance, and limiting capacity to 50%.
The virtual experience will be lead on Zoom by Giselle herself! Parents can pick-up craft baskets for the at home event on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
