who we are 

Our faculty possesses a shared passion for the performing arts and is fully committed to the development and training of our students. You are sure to find a favorite teacher in this diverse group! Our instructors come from various training backgrounds with an impressive list of credentials including dance degrees, professional dance careers, and countless years of teaching experience.  Having worked in various aspects of their field, they each bring their expertise and knowledge into the classroom. CPAC's faculty members place a strong emphasis on technique, proper placement achieved through anatomical awareness, and overall performance quality. Our instructors strive to develop strong, versatile dancers who will be recognized for excellence. 

CPAC has created a carefully structured program designed to produce technically proficient dancers within each class level. Our friendly, motivating staff members use positive reinforcement to help inspire and challenge CPAC students as they advance through our progression of class levels. CPAC is dedicated to offering each student a solid technical foundation within a safe, nurturing learning environment. CPAC promotes a positive, non-competitive learning atmosphere in which dancers are encouraged to excel and challenged to reach their full potential. Our goal is to cultivate young dancers into well-rounded individuals who have not only an appreciation for dance but who reach for high achievement in academic and community service, as well. We are deeply committed to helping create and nurture lifelong values in each of our students. 

Whether your child dreams of pursuing a dance career or simply attends class just for fun, CPAC's amazing staff is sure to instill strong character qualities and inspire a passion for dancing that will last a lifetime!
