About Cedar Park Dance Academy

CPDA is a Christ-centered dance academy under the direction of trained, seasoned dance instructors. Our instructors bring many years of experience in various dance forms although we focus primarily on lyrical and classical ballet.

We began in 2014 and are continually growing, while keeping class sizes small! This creates a comfortable place for dancers to begin their ballet journey, as well as gain confidence as their skills increase.

Our trained instructors have a passion for dance but, even more so, a passion to serve Jesus Christ in this community with their talents and to offer Him the highest praise!
