My daughter began CKDC in first grade and was very shy and timid. The nurturing staff took her in and brought out the very best in her. They not only uncovered her passion for dance, but also created a strong, confident, determined young lady with skills that will take her far beyond the dance studio. Rachel has instilled a culture of love, trust and dedication at CKDC that lives in the students, the parents and the teachers. The bonds these dancers have made, whether staying backstage to support each other before a performance, snacking between dances to keep their energy going or just the fun moments they have during classes, will last a lifetime. I truly appreciate and thank Rachel and each teacher for sharing their specific gift with my daughter.
