The company’s main focus is to offer an outlet for dancers seeking a higher level of training within their dance education. Dancers are selected through an audition process and placed into groups based on age & ability. CDAPC members must study the requisite ballet, contemporary, jazz, hip hop, tap, leaps and turns, stretch and strength, and tricks and tumbling classes. Company members have the opportunity to audition for and attend many National as well as International Summer Programs for Higher Education Schools and Professional Dance Companies. The dancers are provided with numerous performance opportunities, as well as participating in competition and convention classes.

Being selected as a CDAPC member is a privilege, in which the dancer is held accountable to their responsibilities as an individual. Dancers strive to achieve goals while developing skills they will use in and outside of the dance world.
