The Creative Dance Center teaches the concepts of dance through engaging activities and BrainDance exercises appropriate for each age level. They believe that the students who have the chance to experience dance in a joyful way will make it part of their lives. In this way CDC is more than a dance school. It is a place where a person can develop his or her creative potential in a warm, positive and non-competitive atmosphere.
