Why is CDA generating such interest among members of the dance community? They share our vision of fostering excellence in Classical Dance schooling. They understand the power of pedagogy as a tool for better training. They see the potential of a resource organization that supports their own artistic efforts and aspirations. And they like the idea of building an alliance of like-minded individuals that is an outgrowth of the community it serves. All this makes CDA different from any other dance organization you can join.
