Both a performance company and a school, Chattanooga Dance Theatre provides the Chattanooga and Hixson communities with quality dance classes and performances. CDT’s qualified instructors have years of experience teaching, have professional careers dancing, and many have degrees in dance. Classes and performances promote proper dance techniques while encouraging confidence and creativity for all students.
In the children’s dance program, we work to create well-rounded dancers with a strong base in ballet and a solid understanding of body mechanics. Dancers and movers are welcome at the studio at 2 years old in Creative Movement classes with parents. Once Pre-K aged, young dancers continue their studies with Primary Dance Classes.
At a first grade age, dancers are encouraged to take both the Ballet I class and the Modern/ Jazz I class. With a foundation in classical ballet forms a dancer is able to carry vocabulary over to many types of dance. As dancers continue with their dance education, they are encouraged to increase the number of classes taken each week. Please note class descriptions.
