2023-24 SCHEDULE & tuition
CDPA’s Framework for Dance Education includes progressive, curricular-based training and recreational classes for ages 2 to adult. We support the cross-disciplinary study of dance in support of the whole-child experience and align our classes with the National Standards for Dance Education. Our instructional design supports academic enrichment, creative process and social-emotional learning practices.

What is the difference between Progressive Curriculum, Learning Corps, and Recreational tracks?
In the wake of COVID-19, CDPA modified programming to accommodate student and family needs for safety and for restorative practices in socialization following modification at the height of COVID restrictions. Our students who continued their studies during COVID reported high satisfaction with the Learning Corps approach and that option remained in place until the 2023-24 season. We are returning to our former Progressive Curriculum track. Many families need their students to be able to ease back into a dance schedule, or just start dance later in life, or are unsure of how dance fits in their life right now. This is where our recreational classes should fit the bill!
Are we able to mix and match?
Yes, you absolutely can and SHOULD. If dance is your primary extracurricular activity but you are not ready for or do not want the commitment of the CDPA Performing Ensemble, you should take your appropriate level classes and then consider other classes that enhance your training. To make the right choice for your training, look for Open House dates and times or email director, Kathryn Austin directly at Director Email so that we can talk through your needs!
Do you have to be a certain age to take more than one class?
Absolutely not. Think about it like this: Does your child only play on the playground or swim one day or one hour a week? Consider your child’s energy level and usual engagement time in outdoor or play-related activities. That will give you a good gauge for your child’s benefit in multiple class engagement. Remember dance hits all of the development markers in our children and serves as a physical, emotional, and intellectual access point to cognitive and affective learning goals while providing therapeutic elements innate and embedded in the experience.
What do I do while my child is at dance?
The sky is the limit!! Enjoy one on one time with your other children. Go for coffee with a friend. Start a trail walking or biking group. Start a small group Bible Study or Reading Club. Go and enjoy downtown Winter Garden! You will be able to be back in the lobby in the Fall if all stays on track, but…why???? Let’s focus on parent time and energy too and get more “bang for your bucks” by taking time for YOU while your child is growing and learning in the safety of our CDPA dance family!
