Citadel Dance Program

Join the Citadel Dance Program, offering weekend classes in Creative Movement, Ballet, Bharatanatyam and Tap.

Established in 2012, the Citadel Dance Program (CDP) provides weekend dance classes for children and youth in our local community of Regent Park. Our mandate is to make dance both accessible and visible to those living in our neighbourhood and to empower youth through the arts.

We welcome students of all levels of training and experience – from curious beginners to practiced movers – and work to foster a positive, inclusive environment that supports the individual development and creative expression of each student.

CDP offers classes for students in JK to Grade 6 in Creative Movement, Ballet, Bharatanatyam and Tap.

Read on for information regarding registration, scholarships, and class schedules, as well as learn about our fabulous CDP faculty.

Registration for the 2023-24 season is currently closed.

For more information, please contact us at cdp@citadelcie.com.

A one-time registration fee of $25 is required. All payments to be processed in person on the first day of class.

Full scholarships (minus the $25 registration fee) are available for residents of Regent Park. Subsidized rates are available for those in financial need and upon completion of a subsidy form.
