We offer a flexible schedule that fits into yours. CKDC believes that dance is a universal language that connects us all. Movement is fundamental to the development of personal well being and serves as an authentic outlet for creativity and expression. We commit ourselves to providing accessible outlets for our community to engage in movement arts, and to maintain a diverse environment that honors equality, equity and compassion.
Our mission is to make dance accessible to all and expose the healing art of dance to our communities.
Our vision is to use our unlimited passion for movement, build a diverse and welcoming community rooted in wellness and equity.
CKDC is an arts community that reflects the diverse identities of residents in the city and surrounding region. We demonstrate and practice a commitment to racial and cultural equity through the dance styles we offer, by fusing different dance styles into our works, and by centering diversity in hiring teaching artists and company members. We are committed to using dance to incubate a compassionate shared experience with creative practices that center and celebrate diverse cultures, and to make classes and performances accessible to those who are marginalized by systemic economic oppression and neglect.
