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 professionals 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. 

 

“We should consider everyday lost in which we don't dance.”
