CityDance School & Conservatory is an award-winning dance school offering introductory classes through professional training in multiple genres through our three divisions: Little Movers (ages 18 months – 7) and Youth Dance Training (7 – 18). Our highest level program, the Conservatory, provides pre-professional and professional training to students with the talent, drive, and ambition to pursue dance in their college and professional careers. We also offer classes for Adults of all levels.
We reach a large, diverse, and global student body across several locations in Montgomery County, MD and Northwest Washington, DC. Structured around a superlative teaching faculty, professional guest artist residencies, and high-quality performance opportunities, we work with each student to provide a class and training schedule that supports their unique trajectory.
“CityDance is the rare pre-professional school offering professional guest artist residencies, a facet of the program whose importance cannot be overstated. The program exposes students to a range of dance styles and methodologies, broadening each student’s scope of knowledge within the field, preparing and inspiring them for the future, and uniquely preparing them to tackle the challenges of the professional dance world.”
