What Sets Us Apart
More than a standard dance studio, The Center for Contemporary Dance is a leading Florida cultural organization with awards from the United Arts of Central Florida and the National Endowment for the Arts. Operating in accordance with the National Standards of Dance Education, programs are designed to provide students of all ages – from novice to professional – with vast experiences in classical, post-classical and world dance forms. Providing you and your family with an impeccable education in the dance arts is our top priority! Here’s what sets us apart from the rest:
It’s not just what we teach, but how we teach. Our 15-year-old pedagogy guides the curriculum for all programs, and is proven to deliver results by responding to the unique creative and technical needs of each pupil, cultivating their transformation from student to Artist.
