Review for The Center for Contemporary Dance Inc, Winter Park, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter transferred to CCD from a competition studio last summer after completing the Summer Intensives. We learned that she was behind her peers in "general technique" and excelled in "Artistry". She cried many nights during the first few weeks of the fall term, but she did not give up. She now attends class six (6) days a week and has excelled to become one of the top dancers in and above her age group. Her confidence has increased and she is now cheorographing her own works. My shy little girl is gone, woooo hoooo. She is a beautiful dancer with a strong point of view. Her latest work was motivated by "moving barriers and overcoming insecurities". She now articulate the history of dance. Define and demonstrate the various dance techniques. The FAILED the first written exam she was given during FALL 2011 and ACED the latest exam given SPRING 2012, scoring over 100% by correctly answering the extra credit questions. We love The Center for Contemporary Dance and plan on attending as long as we can. By the way my daughter is 10.

From a friend.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

My daughter's self image. She is always encouraged to love and treat herself with respect by taking care of her body. For example, practicing with the proper technique, eating healthy, and getting the proper amount of rest. She is loved for who she is and not what she can do.
