Center Stage

Center Stage School of Dance has been formed to
bring a positive environment for students to learn and grow. 
The focus is on creating a strong technical base while 
nurturing each child’s individual creativity.

Welcome to CSSD!

We are very pleased you have taken an interest in this Dance Institution and are eager to meet each and every one of you! We are thrilled to work with your brilliant children, to accomplish our institutions goals and standards, to help students express and interpret their creativity through dance. CSSD classes include elements to develop body awareness, vocabulary, dance technique, critical thinking, problem solving, knowledge of dance as an art form, performance and appreciation. Dance is a participatory art form, everyone can dance! All of our instructors are here to ensure your child will develop both their own skills and self confidence, as well as an appreciation of the grace and strength of the professional dancer and artist. Please be advised, some classes may have a dress code (i.e. ballet requires a leotard and tights).

We urge you to participate in the learning process that your child will embark on by encouraging the student to show you what they have learned and notice their development and growth. We welcome feedback from you as family members to always better the learning environment for each student. Family members who want to be involved in this Institution can volunteer and help promote our program and performances.

Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

Sincerely,

The CSSD Staff
