The Chester Valley Dance Academy is a family run business, established in 1988, to provide quality dance education in a sensitive and friendly atmosphere. We are dedicated to promoting the art of dance, the positive benefits of physical fitness, nurturing talent, self-esteem, academic responsibilities, and proper social values.

Immerse yourself in a week of intense dance training with CVDA

Three Cohorts, 1 Week of Dance

Due to studio capacity, we divide our students based on age and ability into three Intensive groups to make the most of their training. This allows the students to receive direct feedback from our guest instructors; Grades 3-6, Grades 7-9, and Grades 9-12.

Expert Faculty

Dancers will grow artistically during the CVDA Intensive with the help of our expert faculty. Our Guest Artists introduce our students to new techniques and enhance their repertoire. Studio Instructors provide close attention to dancers in each class and build an environment full of excitement and passion for dance.


Learn the technique, make life long friends, and have fun with us in any of our dance programs.
