Canyon Dance Academy


Creative/modern dance focuses on the development of the whole person by presenting dance as an art form, thus spawning creative and independent thinking, leadership skills, self-control both physically and emotionally, working cooperatively in groups, and confidence building in activities such as choreography and performances. Through movement exploration, dancers reach progressive levels of physical skill development while learning the vocabulary of dance. Dancers have the opportunity to improvise, engage in creative problem solving and grow in cognitive, social and emotional ways as they interact in class. At CDA we don’t expect our students to mimic our every move. We teach basic skills, then guide them as they learn to create and express themselves through movement. We advocate the philosophy of Virginia Tanner, a pioneer in the field of creative movement for children: “The motivating force behind my work is not only developing excellent dancers, but more importantly, developing young people who are useful, imaginative, worthwhile human beings."
