Our Passion Is Their Joy!

CDS was established in 1978 by Chris Bornes. Chris nurtured, taught, and inspired students for 36 years and retired in early June, 2013. CDS is now under direction of Samantha Sandefur, who has taught for CDS since 1995.

CDS prides itself on positive reinforcement and great training in quality surroundings. CDS has always placed dancers on only the safest suspended dance floors. With its qualified staff that includes professionals, the utmost care and thought is processed by our team to establish the best curriculum for each level of dancer. Our goal is to provide dancers with all the tools and training they need to advance to the next level of performance. We at CDS believe there is a Gershwin, Picasso, Ailey or Stanislavski within us all. Our duty as educators is to provide an environment that allows a student to learn, grow and create. We are dedicated to the total artist.

What we do; teach, train, encourage, promote and provide opportunities for all levels and styles of dance. Gain confidence, poise, and lasting friendships by studying with nurturing teachers in a noncompetitive environment.

We welcome you and Thank You for choosing CDS Performing Arts!
