GOALS & OBJECTIVES OF CLASSICAL DANCE ALLIANCE

 

Every day another performing company is born, yet the first crucial step in the process that culminates in performance - the training of our dancers - is too often overlooked.

With this as our focus, CDA is working:

  • To build an alliance of professionals who actively participate in the training of Classical Dancers using a common language and knowledge base to ensure the continuity and quality of Classical Dance.

  • To support excellence in Classical Dance training for improved learning outcomes and better performance opportunities for their students.

  • To educate ballet instructors and dance educators in Classical Dance pedagogy and promote the Classical Dance curriculum as an exceptional tool for training dancers.

  • To enrich contemporary and traditional performances by making the Classical Dance vocabulary in its full depth and breadth more accessible to professionals choreographing, staging and performing dance.

  • To foster a better understanding of and appreciation for the Classical Dance tradition through education, by facilitating communication, providing information, and stimulating discourse on Classical Dance.

HOW WE DIFFER FROM OTHER DANCE SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS

 

  • CDA focuses exclusively on Classical Dance.

  • CDA is not a regulatory or oversight agency seeking to enforce standards, but a resource organization seeking to raise standards through education, discourse, and collaboration.

  • CDA is not an entity separate from the dance community it serves but arises from and fulfills its mission through that community.

  • CDA addresses training and performance issues specifically through the prism of pedagogy and

  • uses as the primary basis for its work an established and documented methodology of instruction.

  • CDA can be a resource for other dance service organizations with compatible missions by providing a specific means of helping them to advance their broader goals.  

  • CDA is global in scope because Classical Dance has an international and multicultural heritage.

CDA NEEDS ALLIES LIKE YOU

 

With the participation and support of likeminded professionals, patrons, and collaborators who cherish Classical Dance and seek to preserve and perpetuate the art form to the highest standards, Classical Dance Alliance can have a unique and meaningful impact on the contemporary dancescape.
