Pick of the Crop Dance

Join us!!

MOVIโ€™s interactive and interdisciplinary series will create space for exchanges among artists and students who can take their new understanding about traditional African dance and its line to European dance forms and apply that knowledge to other aspects of life. More acceptance and respect in the dance community about African heritage and the ties that bind us will spread through society, breaking down barriers and neutralizing racism. The Arts have the great ability to transcend what divides people and encourage peace and love in our population while providing solace to the community!

We canโ€™t wait to dance with you!!


Online registration is open! Follow the registration links on our website. We invite you to our open house this Saturday!


Dance has been said to have been a silent form of art, but we plan to discuss with our community, through movement and music, that African culture predates western and classical culture. Our goal is to engage in learning and discussion relative to traditional African dance from a place of authenticity, that is grounded in history, identity, and ancestral intention.
Join us for this free event, with local vendors, to embrace our local dance community.

Some words from Matthew Clark:

"Hello CADC Dance Fam! First I want to say that my heart was bursting with pride seeing all of you perform at my 35th Showcase, and for all the family and friends who attended. I am overwhelmed with love for all of you!
Thank you to all the parents and families who believe in me and instructors at CADC and trust us with your child. The sacrifices you make for your child to dance do not go unnoticed.
To everyone who has used their free time to help our Showcase, helped with costumes, and all the little things that mean so much- thank you!

Thank you for all the gifts, and all the love and appreciation you all have given me.
You all are what drives me everyday, and to be able to share my love of dance with my students, and my students kids as students- has been the blessing of my life.
We have overcome so much together, and now, we reach for the stars!

All my love,
Mr. C"
