The CDPA Performing Ensemble is the premier performance group affiliated with CDPA and at the heart of the CDPA family.
Participation in the group is by audition only. This is NOT a competition team. These students are exceptionally committed to their dance studies and the many ways in which dance can enhance their lives and the lives of others. In addition to taking a full complement of dance disciplines, most of these students are in the CDPA Assistant and Student Teacher program, members of NHSDA and actively engaged in CDPA Outreach programs. Additionally, these students are academically affirmed as a requirement of their participation and most are committed to a variety of extra-curricular activities which give them a broad range of experiences from which their creative energy is drawn. Auditions are held annually in May.
