Dance is one of the oldest performing arts and the performance element is an important part of a complete dance education. We provide our students the opportunity to perform in our annual Nutcracker performance, our Spring Recital and even more through our CDA Company team.

The Nutcracker

Every season, Connolly Dance Arts enchants our community with the holiday favorite, The Nutcracker. CDA students who participate in our summer Ballet Intensive are guaranteed a part in the performance. (Dancers must also be enrolled in a weekly ballet class at CDA.)

Spring Recital 

Every year, CDA holds a Spring Recital at an area theater. This is a great way to showcase all that the dancers have learned throughout the season. (Students who participate in the recital will need a costume for each of the dances they perform.)

CDA Company

Established in 1994, the Performing Company provides dancers with the opportunity to take master classes in a variety of dance disciplines, attend conventions, compete and perform.  All students ages 5 and up who are enrolled at CDA are welcome to audition for the competitive company team. These dancers train at the studio year-round. In addition, the Company performs in shows and benefits throughout our area.
