About Us/Mission

 

Mission Statement

Chehalem Valley Dance Academy is committed to providing the highest quality of dance training and discipline in a judgement free and family friendly environment. At CVDA we emphasize dance skills as life skills to inspire and empower our students to not only great dancers but also contributing and mature community members that are prepared for whatever their next chapter is in life.

About Us

We offer classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Hip Hop for ages 3 and up. Our programs focus on developing life skills as well as dance skills for the recreational or pre-professional dancer. We employ the most qualified instructors that share the same pillars of leadership and expertise in their field. At Chehalem Valley Dance Academy, we believe that through dance training, every person can realize their true potential. Our session runs from September 15th through May 20th and culminates in our Annual Showcase. Dancers will have one costume per class to purchase that will be theirs to keep following the showcase. As a family of CVDA, you are invited to participate in Parent-Watch Weeks, Bring-A-Friend Weeks, The Nutcracker, First Friday Art Walk activities, and many more events at the studio and out in the community. Our staff believes that dance skills are life skills. Joining CVDA will grow every person’s self-confidence, discipline, respect, perseverance, leadership, active listening skills, and ability to set goals and achieve them.
