WATCH YOUR CHILD LEARN
The CDA studios were specially designed and built to meet our parents' and students' every need. Would you like to watch your child during class? Lounge in our comfortable lobby and observe your student through our large interior viewing window. Or, watch your student dance over closed-circuit camera via our flat screen TV.
PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED TEACHERS
CDA students receive a top quality dance education. Our teachers' backgrounds include dancing at Cornish, performing at Disneyland, and appearing on the TV show "America's Got Talent." In addition, our teachers continue to train in order to learn the latest dance techniques. Two instructors just attended the Northwest Dance Intensive, where they trained with world-renowned professional ballet dancer and teacher, Phillip Beamish. CDA offers it's faculty free dance classes and sponsors their training, so we can carefully train our dancers in ways that protect their bodies, improve their artistry, and maximize their talent.
SUPERIOR DANCE FACILITIES
At CDA, we believe your child deserves the best! Our studios feature large, beautiful, open spaces where your child can express their love of dance. Our vinyl wood floors create a stable platform for performing, while reducing impact on joints and tendons. In addition, we provide everything our students might need - free water, a study nook for in-between class homework, a microwave for snacks and cubbies for individual storage.
Each year, the Camano Dance Academy students wow audiences at their spring recital - and each show is better than the last! CDA gives your child the opportunity to perform in a exceptional stage production at the Stanwood High School Performing Arts Center. In addition, we keep the parents in mind, as we are the only local dance school that charges a minimal fee for costumes, and no recital fee.
A PLACE FOR PARENTS, TOO!
Why should the kids have all the fun? if you'd like to indulge your dreams of dance, we offer Hip Hop, Tap, Yoga, Ballet and Scottish Highland classes specifically for adults. Not only will you learn a new skill, increase your flexibility, burn calories and improve your muscle tone, you'll have a great time!
If restful relaxation is more your style, try catching some sun on our large outdoor deck. Enjoy the soothing sounds of the nearby water feature as you view your student dancing through our large CDA studio windows, and catch the strains of classical music floating through the air.
SUPPORTIVE, NURTURING ENVIRONMENT
Our faculty believes every student deserves a safe, happy environment in which to learn and grow. We teach through positive reinforcement and encouragement. Our students are not only classmates, they are friends who support each other in their pursuit to become better dancers. At CDA, we love our kids.
