Is pleased to announce an expanded schedule beginning January 25, 2021.
We are Springing Forward with Care and Caution and finding ways to invite limited numbers of new students to join our dance family. In addition, we will begin adding in dance enhancements to supplement your core classes and allow you to focus in areas that you need most. All classes end 10 minutes early to allow for COVID-considerate collection of personal belongings, reflective conversation, and safe dismissal and/or passing to next class.

Safe-at-Dance Programming Plans
COVID-19 has unveiled opportunities to unpack and discover creative ways to address and clarify real needs for our children, their families and our community. We are excited to offer a course of action plan that parallels and supplements educational needs and social-emotional gaps presented by our post-COVID reality. Dance is more than steps! At CDPA, we recognize gaps and respond to the needs of whole-child development that may become lost in other aspects of our COVID-19 prescribed conditions.
CDPA’s Framework for Dance Education in a post-COVID reality has implemented
LEARNING CORPS as a way to
support cross-disciplinary study of dance as it leads to the growth of the dancer and the learner
integrate academic enrichment
use dance as a therapeutic tool to support the social-emotional learning losses of the COVID-19 options for learning.
Our Corps classes are Dance-Focused Integrated Arts Experiences, using Dance in a variety of genres, to spark the students’ creative impulses to develop ideas, choreograph, design, direct, write and produce action-based movement expressions, performance art and dance. In addition to dance technique, the areas of art, music, creative writing, arts-integrated academics, functional kinesiology, health and nutrition will be incorporated into our classes. The progressive curriculum at CDPA, designed and detailed nearly 25 years ago is presently being incorporated into an outline that will embrace these concepts in order to apply emerging best practices. I am continually identifying how to put these measures into place so that our response to safe-at-dance learning practices is embedded in the curriculum and not a burden to the student and parent.
Every student at CDPA is exposed to all forms of dance in the progression of their age and development. Our Learning Corps students study ballet, jazz, tap, musical theatre, and modern in a fluid format whereby the focus may change but the overall concepts of body works in terms of science and art will be practiced. There will be opportunities for genre-specific enhancements (other add-on classes) which may happen onsite or online. Please note that at any time, we may have to return to fully online delivery of our CDPA classes. Part of our commitment to the students and parents is that we will be incorporating the development of self-driven tactics for success and ways to practice as a way of supporting the student and the parent during these shifts.
