Faculty & Staff
Instructors at CDA are either college graduates of prestigious dance programs, have performed professionally, have trained under CDA’s Artistic Director in the CDA Teachers’ Training Program, or have degrees from an accredited college in the form of education/theatre arts.
All Instructors follow a graduated syllabus created by Owner/Artistic Director, Niki J. Watkins over 15 years ago. CDA’s Syllabi have been tested and proven over years of trial classes to be effective, age appropriate and the perfect blend of fun and technique that each young dancer needs as they grow.
