CCD offers a diverse set of programs that serves all ages, 2 through mature adults. Our online education programs have been designed for dance instructors and onsite group dance classes.
We believe in strategic systematic teaching and learning. We believe that dance instruction should begin with the end goal in mind and systematically progressing towards that goal/end product. We believe that student growth should be measured by assessments and of course, the end product. We employ teacher-center and student-center methods in our classes.
The heart of CCD is to provide dance education in excellence in a Christian enviroment where students are love, respect and encouraged regardless of age, body type and dance educational background.
Christ Center for Dance (CCD) is a nonprofit Christian worship arts organization that serves to train, mentor and equip worship artists, visual artists and liturgical dancers. With students and graduates in 9 countries, CCD strives to be one of the world leaders and forerunners in online education for worship artists.
Teach and Empower. These two words are the driving force of Christ Center for Dance! Since 2004, this theme has echoed in our hearts and has birthed a passion to excel, persevere and strived for promote Christian principals in the arts. By faith, we pressed onward to touch as many lives as we can by creating a platform for people to trained and be educated in the art form of dance and worship arts while being in a Christian environment. We are fully aware that the word, "Christian" is not a very popular word in our culture however, we endeavor to love all with the love of Christ while upholding Christian values.
For over 10 years, Christ Center for Dance (CCD) has been serving the greater Philadelphia area by providing affordable dance education in a comfortable and encouraging environment. Officially established as a 501c3 tax exempt organization in 2004, CCD first began in Norristown, PA in community centers and religious organizations such as the Salvation Army and Partner for Families Community Center. Our mission is to teach and empower others through the vehicle of dance. Our small staff is a group of dedicated volunteers that believe in this mission, feeling their work gives a unique voice to our students. They serve as role models, echoing the phrases in their lifestyle that “it is better to give than to receive” and “all things are possible if you believe”.
Our Mission: To Teach and Empower people to minister for the Lord through the Arts.
