Curtis Studio of Dance (CSD) is a multidisciplinary school of dance founded in
1973. It is our goal to provide exemplary and challenging dance instruction,
and to provide, not only the students, but the community at large, quality
experiences in dance performance and arts education.
Instruction is geared to produce technically sound, injury free dancers, in a
caring environment with emphasis on building self-esteem and the development of
essential social skills. CSD’s long-term commitment to the community is
reflected in its lifelong policy of providing classes for every willing and able
student, regardless of financial or physical constraints. This extends to
integrating children with disabilities into regular dance classes of all levels,
giving CSD a unique standing in the community.
Our long-term commitment to the community is reflected in the multitude of
performance opportunities we offer the students and our audiences from the
annual Recital and Nutcracker production, to community festivals and events,
fundraisers, school and community talent shows. We travel with students to
performing arts conventions for additional educational opportunities and train a
competition corps that competes in highly acclaimed international dance
CSD employs highly acclaimed teachers in the dance industry who have enjoyed
long and successful performing and teaching careers, bridging the gap between
recreational dance and the possibility of a career in the performing arts.
