COVID-19 UPDATES

We are CLOSED through April 24th due to the mandatory shut down


Hello Fam,

With a National shut down looming, we will be closing for yet another week (week of March 30th-April 3rd), and the following week is Spring Break, which we will be utilizing as well. We are hoping that we can return to life as normal after that (or at least businesses can reopen), but there is no guarantee. Here is our plan going forward:

Week of March 30th-April 3rd:
On Monday, March 30th, at 4 PM, ALL classes will have 3 online videos which will consist of warm-up, across the floor/center work, and recital choreography. You can take class any time you wish, or your schedule allows, and can pause and restart as needed. After class, you can email your teacher, with your phone number, and a day/time to set up a 5-10 minute "mini private lesson" via FaceTime. Your teacher will call you at the specified time, and you can ask questions about class combos, recital choreography or anything else that pertains your training. 

Week of April 6th-10th:
Already scheduled Spring Break-no new classes will be posted, but you can use our video library as much as you would like. 

Weeks of April 13th-April 24th:

Mandatory shutdown continues, so we will continue to provide online classes and recital choreography videos. Please monitor your DSP parent portal for the latest videos and extras!

As you know, we are a small business that relies on you, our customers, to stay afloat. Without your monthly and quarterly tuition coming in, we would not survive more than a month or two. Please know, that we understand this situation is not ideal, but we have been working tirelessly to ensure you keep training now, AND have a studio to come back to once this virus runs its course. Videoing a class is actually a lot more work than coming into the studio to teach a class, and we hope our efforts are sufficient enough for you to continue paying for dance class.

As it stands, we have not cut into our already scheduled make-up days and breaks, but the week of March 30th will start to be "unplanned closure" days (3 days accounted for, 2 are not). We will still offer ALL classes that week, regardless of their make-up status. These videos will not be a full hour, but keep in mind that part of regular class is giving corrections/feedback, and also going across the floor, so the full time will not be utilized due to the format.

For all of us to stay connected, please check our social media for videos, contests, updates, and more! We would love to see what you are doing at home, so please tag us in any pictures or videos of you dancing, your activity pages, or anything else you want to share during this break.

We will continue to monitor the most up to date recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) associated with COVOID-19 to ensure that safety is put first. 

If there are any concerns or questions, please feel free to reach out!

Thank you, as always, for your patience and understanding as we navigate our way through uncharted territory. We miss all of you so much, and cannot wait to return to your smiling faces...sooner rather than later! 

Much love, 
CDC Faculty and Staff 


Our Mission

Since its inception in 1998, Chesterfield Dance Center has been known for providing superior dance technique training, along with cutting-edge, contemporary choreography.  Our faculty is made up of professional dancers and dancers with degrees from accredited Universities who pride themselves on teaching, not only properly, but with passion.  CDC is a place where students can thrive and have fun, while developing their dancing potential to the fullest.

Whether you are interested in a professional career or simply recreation, CDC has something for the whole family.  We strive to mold our students into well-trained, dedicated and committed dancers with a passion for the art form.  Past students have gone onto dance in professional companies, major in dance in college, become members of University dance teams, dance for Disney, teach in private studios, and even an international tour with pop sensation, Justin Beiber.

CDC has often been described as a family with a strong sense of community and loyalty, where you will never be treated as "just another number".  We aim to provide a nurturing and professional environment, where creativity can flourish and our students can learn the value of dedication and commitment, well beyond the world of dance.
