“I wish I had know about the school years ago. I finally feel at home. I don’t feel like people are judging me. I feel safe to be myself. Whenever o have a bad day, I go to dance and then I feel so much better. That’s something you can’t put a price on. I feel that I have really improved as a dancer since joining the CDE Family:) I can’t wait to continue growing with you guys!”
Nina Hernandez, Age 17
“At CDE the teachers and staff are amazing. The studio is clean, neat and ran professionally for our children. The commitment from everyone throughout the year really shines at our annual Dance Collage. We are like one big family.”
Dawn Palmucci of Clark, NJ
“Our daughter Jen has been dancing at CDE since she was 3 years old. This is her 11th year at CDE and she thinks of it as her home away from home. CDE is the perfect school for her: it is a serious dance school that has always been a place of positive reinforcement and encouragement. Her teachers are both mentors and friends, and she dances with the nicest group of girls. We’re proud members of the CDE family!”
Mandelblatt of Westfield, NJ
“We have been a CDE family since 1998. We have watched our daughter Yasmine grow from an uncoordinated toddler to a graceful, bright and talented young lady. The teachers at CDE cultivate not only dance skills, but encourage students to care for themselves, building confidence and poise!”
“My daughter has been a CDE dancer for 5 years and loves it. When you dance at CDE you become part of a family, the staff is wonderful and the performances are spectacular.”
Christine Thornton of Clark, NJ
“CDE is a wonderful experience for our whole family. We find they have developed the perfect blend of fun, dance education, fitness and emotional growth.
Our girls, Kim and Kathleen, were able to pursue the creative side of their personalities with the help of the staff and instructors at CDE. They have matured into well rounded young women and CDE was a huge part of the development.
Kim was able to use her training at CDE to become an integral member of the #2 ranked dance team at the 2009 College Dance Championship for St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. Kathleen continues to excel in the Talented and Gifted Dance program at Somerset County Vocational High School.”
Mary O’Donnel and Tom Pickert of Westfield, NJ
“Center for Dance Education is a top-notch dance studio offering a very professional, yet nurturing learning environment. The annual show-stopping performances of the Nutcracker and dance recitals are a true testament to the high-end level of experience, passion, love and the art of teaching that Evy and Christina, and all the instructors, display to all their students!”
“My two daughters have been dancing at CDE for five years. I am so pleased with the professionalism and caring of the faculty and staff, as I watch my daughters continue to develop as dancers.”
This is my daughter’s 12th year dancing and 8th year at CDE. She could not be happier. There is no place she would rather be. CDE is the complete package.”
