Created to Dance (CTD) is a non-competitive performance company for children, teens, and adults who love to dance and who have a passion to perform!

The core values of CTD include teamwork, commitment, and giving back to our wonderful community. Our goal is to not only provide exceptional dance training and exciting performance opportunities, but to encourage each CTD dancer to build self-esteem, confidence, and lasting friendships within a supportive and extremely fun environment. Company members are challenged to grow both artistically and technically as dancers as they perform at a variety of events and venues throughout the year with the mission to spread joy as they share their love for dance!

Company Requirements

CTD dancers will have specific requirements throughout the year. Requirements include attending a certain number of Summer Classes, attending Choreography Week in August, enrolling in specific School Year Session classes, and participating in CTD performances. Although there are requirements for all dancers who participate in the CTD, we strive to make CTD a reasonable option for all families, both in terms of commitment level and financial obligations! Having your Emerald, Sapphire, or Diamond dancer only participate in two out of three dance styles is a great option for families who are looking for less time commitment. Participating in ALL dance styles is a great option for dancers who are deeply invested in dance


Summer Classes 

Dancers in CTD will be required to attend a certain number of Summer Classes leading up to Choreography Week in August. Summer class requirements are determined based on the Company that your dancer is placed in and the types of dance that they have auditioned for. Summer dance classes are required to ensure that dancers are maintaining and continuing to build their strength and dance skills during July and August!

On Saturday, 8/17, there will be an end of week celebration that includes all company dancers and families! 

School Year Session Requirements

Company dancers will have certain class requirements during the school year so that they can continue to learn and grow as dancers. School Year Session requirements are determined based on the Company that your dancer is placed in and the types of dance that they have auditioned for. In addition to required classes, dancers in all companies will have ONE rehearsal per week during the School Year Session where they practice their dances and prepare for upcoming performances. Please email ctd@creationdancestudio.com to receive a CTD Information Packet and a CTD Class Requirements Packet.
