    At Cumberland Dance Academy we look forward to providing both children and adults a quality dance education with a personal touch.

    We take pride in providing a nurturing atmosphere to enable students to reach their fullest potential and build their self-esteem while experiencing the true joy of dance. We believe that in building self-esteem we can help build strong, confident people who will excel in everyday life. Our hope is to provide an opportunity for creativity, exploration, personal expression and growth to members of our community.

    CDA instructors are dedicated to promoting the performing arts and dance for the youth of Hope Mills, Cumberland and surrounding counties. It is Cumberland Dance Academy’s hope that the children here will develop confidence, poise, and a positive self image while learning and experiencing the art of dance.
