I cannot express enough how much I have enjoyed seeing the growth in my daughter in the past 9 months. She looks forward to dance class each week and often talks about Miss Tina and her classmates. Miss Tina does a tremendous job with the toddler group. The toddler dance camp was amazing as well.

This is the 4th dance center we have tried – having danced my entire life – including being a member of the Towson University Dance Team and program.  I love this program!  I think that it teaches the children the fundamentals that they need before moving forward into other disciplines and does it in a fun fast paced environment.  I couldn’t be more happy her instructor who is firm yet fun – and I think the program as a whole is fantastic!  Thank you!

"Cecil Dancenter is where I found my love for dance.  The positive, second-family atmosphere allowed me to make an enduring relationship with the art form alongside life-long friendships with individuals.  As I now continue my training and begin my professional performing career, I am unendingly grateful to Cecil Dancenter for giving me my foundation in the dance world."

“I would not be the person I am today without Cecil Dancenter and Cecil Dance Theatre. Cecil Dance Theatre made me feel like I was part of another family that I knew was always there for me.  In all the 10 years I danced at CDC I never felt as though I didn’t belong and I truly loved attending dance classes.  Being given the opportunity to express myself in this comforting environment has been a true blessing.”

Abbie Worley

Cecil Dancenter has truly been a blessing in my life! I loved every moment during my twelve years of instruction there. Not only did the instructors give me great training, they also cared about me personally. While dancing at Cecil I created friendships that will last a lifetime. I wouldn't trade the time I had at Cecil Dancenter for anything!

Melody & Bob Anderson

"We continue to be amazed with the quality of instructors Cecil Dancenter has to offer. Caroline has not only learned proper technique she has learned to love dance."

Kelsey Stenta

"I danced at Cecil Dancenter for 13 years and I loved every minute of it. There was a mix of technical training and performing opportunities that really shaped my dancing and prepared me for my college experience. Not only were the classes excellent, but all of the people involved were like a family to me. I am so glad that dancing at Cecil Dancenter was such a large and important part of my life.

Brooke Truitt

"Cecil Dancenter was the biggest part of my life growing up. From age three until the day I graduated, Cecil Dancenter and Cecil Dance Theatre filled my time. Over the years, I received dance training in countless styles of dance from teachers in all backgrounds of dance. Cecil Dancenter offered me pre-professional companies (CDT), dance festivals (both Maryland and Delaware Dance Festivals), and opportunities to dance around the community (Cal Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, MD). I made friendships that will last me a lifetime and gained mentors that continue to lead me through life. I am so thankful for everyone that has been involved with Cecil Dancenter and will stay a part of the CDC family forever."

Lisa Rowley

"We both have so many fond memories of her thirteen years with Cecildancenter.  I still remember the first day I took her to class and she wouldn’t go into the classroom without me.  She has certainly gained lifelong skills, developed a healthy lifestyle, and made some good friends as a result of her involvement.  I think one of the most important things she has achieved is being comfortable performing in front of the public and enjoying the stage.  I’m sure this will benefit her as she begins Honors Drama at school and participates in productions there.  Thanks for all that you have done to provide these dance-related experiences and training for Paige!"

Devin Miller

"I don't even know where to begin. I simply could not imagine my life without my involvement with Cecil Dancenter and Cecil Dance Theatre. My love for dance began during my first ballet class at the studio. Ever since that first class, I was captivated and couldn't get enough. All of my teachers were amazing; they helped me to grow not only as a dancer, but as a person. Being a member of the University of Maryland dance team and getting to know all of the other dancers on the team, I've come to realize just how unique and special CDC and CDT are. The opportunities and experience I gained from the studio cannot be found everywhere, and I am extremely grateful to have found them here at CDC. Everyone at the studio made it a place that I wanted to be for hours on end; it was, and still is, like a second home to me. "

My daughter has danced at Cecil Dancenter for 13 years. I have watched her go from taking one class a week as a 3-year-old to now taking classes almost every day of the week in ballet, jazz, lyrical, modern, pointe, tap and hip hop. The teachers at Cecil Dancenter are first rate. When my daughter has attended summer workshops and intensives, she has the technical ability to dance anywhere and with anyone and fit in comfortably. I attribute this to the training and confidence she has gained at Cecil Dancenter. I have attended many Cecil Dancenter recitals and performances over the years and I have found that they are always packed with proud families attending to watch their happy and talented children perform. I am very happy that my daughter dances at Cecil Dancenter. She loves her instructors and her classes.

Erika Edwards

Cecil Dancenter was my home away from home for fifteen years. I was just one out of six in my extended family to attend CDC. I danced at CDC from the age of 2, taking a dance basics class, to the age of 17 taking ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, modern, hip-hop, and lyrical. I also was privileged to have such a wonderful opportunity participating in the performing company's CJDT and CDT. Throughout all my time and experiences at CDC I encountered instructors who cared for their students like family, and irreplaceable friendships, as well as memories. I was blessed to be apart of the CDC family, and I know that I will always be welcome at CDC. I can proudly say that Cecil Dancenter is place that provides students with unique dance training, while teaching students to always have fun while living out their passion for dance.

Amber Barrett

"For eleven years Cecil Dancenter has been a major part of my life, and I could not have asked for a better place to dance. The teachers at CDC are all very skilled in their dance styles, and all have such a passion and love for what they do. It is at CDC that I made my second home. Not only did the teachers treat me like family, but so did the girls I danced with. Even if I was having the worst day, knowing that I would get to dance that night made everything better. On the dance floor I was able to forget all my problems. Whether we wanted to be professional dancers when we graduated, or if we just danced for the fun of it, we were always taught to just enjoy our love for dancing. CDC along with CDT has given me a multitude of memories and a whole new family. Even though I am graduated now, I’ll stop by to take a class every once in while, and each time I am always welcomed back with open arms."

Alison Duffy

"I had the opportunity to be a part of Cecil Dancenter for 14 years as a student, Cecil Dance Theatre member, and instructor.  The solid dance training with which I was instilled during my time at Cecil Dancenter is something that will positively impact me for the rest of my life.  Not only does CDC offer quality instructors, and fun classes, but also a family-like environment.  The relationships I formed with the teachers and other students are connections and friendships that will last a lifetime.  Those who are involved with Cecil Dancenter truly are members of a unique, loving, and wonderful family.  I could not have spent 14 years in a better way than taking and teaching dance classes at Cecil Dancenter.  Now as a member of the Kutztown University Dance Team, I am very thankful for everything I gained from CDC and CDT!."
