About Our Classes
How We Teach
At Courtney’s Dance Artistry, classes are designed to stimulate the enjoyment of dance while laying an important foundation for further training. As the dancer advances, the variety and intensity of the class work increases. Some dancers may choose to join CDA’s Elite Competition Team and compete their dances, which leads to the possibility of college scholarships and professional careers in dance; while others may participate in dance for the exercise and pure enjoyment of the art form; also eligible for advanced Elite class placement.
