What's amazing to me about The Center for Contemporary Dance is the fact that they open up a new and artistic world to all their students, regardless of age, ability, etc. Dario is an inspiration, and has changed my daughter's views of her own abilities and confidence levels. I can safely say that she now has a lifelong appreciation of dance!
This organization is committed to the community. They perform out reach to the homeless, and underserved schools. It is through both classes and performances they make a difference. At the studio are students from all communities and backgrounds. They are learning dance at all levels. Dance is art so there are performances for all, beginners to advanced dancers. Scholarships are available for students who need help paying for classes.
But what makes me so proud, are their classes for those with Down syndrome, those with cystic fibrosis, and those with other movement disorders. Dario Moore is an extraordinary teacher who addresses life lessons while teaching dance. He uses dance to transform his students..
The community is made better by this organization. It is an honor to be associated with them.
I am a choreographer and dancer producing work with my own dance company, formerly based in NYC. When I first moved to Orlando, I was looking for a home for my creative dance work. I was hoping to find a place that is open, inviting, and supportive of dance as an artform, as well as hoping to find a community of dance. CCD has met and exceeded that aspiration in so many ways. Not only do they serve the independent artist like myself; they also serve under-served populations; they provide high quality training for children, youth and adults in dance (and theater) education; their teachers, choreographers and resident artists are exceptional; they provide a supportive environment for creative expression; they serve the greater Orlando area by providing high quality artistic work; and they create a welcoming community of dance lovers.
I'm a long time resident of Orange County and now Seminole County, having worked in both the private and public health sectors since 1988. I've had the privilege and pleasure of attending many dance concerts/events at CCD and knowing the founders as well as others in the dance community of Central Florida. The work that CCD does for the arts, aspiring artists and the community is wonderful! It is critical that this organization continue to get support for all its current and future endeavors given the significant contributions it has made over the years.
Mr.Dario Was an exceptional instructor, he voluntarily helped out my school in a performance we had and we scored a superior thanks to his help!
This is great! Dario volunteered for our show at Evans and we won a superior because of him.
This was an amazing experience for my students! They learned so much!
The instructors at the Center for Contemporary Dance are very engaging. You can tell they love children and really have a passion for dance that they want to share. This organization has come out to our elementary school and taught dance to large classes once or twice a year, and the students love every minute of it! Each time they teach, the students learn something about dance, it's history, or cultural expression through dance. As they dance, students learn a little technique, participate in a little fitness, while immersing themselves in the fun and enjoying the chance for self expression.
The Center for Contemporary Dance is a mission-driven organization that exemplifies excellence in their art and in their management practices. Their work celebrates diversity and builds community. They are a treasure to Central Florida.
The Center for Contemporary Dance is an impeccable dance school that provides an excellent dance education. The teachers are all well respected professionals in the dance world and the standards are very high. We have been extremely happy at CCD since my daughter started there almost one year ago. We have seen a tremendous growth in her abilities and confidence and most of all she enjoys dancing there. The place is very well run, schedules are available at the beginning of the year and changes are communicated in a timely manner.
