Once Upon a Time

And Happily Ever After

If there is one thing last year taught us, its that we should value every moment we have together. Chattanooga Dance Theatre is committed to providing joyous experiences in dance training and performances for you and the Chattanooga Community. We train dancers to have a strong foundation in ballet, but have many options in their dance tutelage and train to the best of their abilities. So come dance with us, and set the course of your own fairytale.

Keeping Safe

CDT is committed to keeping a safe and clean space for your dancer

We are following the best practices to keep CDT dancers safe and healthy. All staff are fully vaccinated. While recommended by the CDT, we require masks in the building when active Covid-19 cases are high in our area. At this time, Covid-19 cases are low in Hamilton county and masks are optional for staff and students.  


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

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
