We are very excited for our Year End Recital. The students and teachers have been working very hard to put on a great show for everyone this year and we can't wait for you all to see just how wonderful the dancers at CDA are!!!!



Here are some comments from our wonderful parents;

Chantal, I can't thank you enough for the amazing year that Gabi has had with CDA. Not only have her Acro skills advanced beyond what I could have ever expected, but her confidence, poise and social skills from interacting with the other dancers have increased dramatically. Gabi was thrilled to attend every class and was enthusiastic about the things she learned and did. Thank you for taking the time to help her improve and for having the patience to deal with her exuberance! Watching her in the recital truly brought tears to our eyes. She has indeed come "a long way, baby!" The trophy with her name on it was truly the icing on the cake for her. She has already got plans to "earn more trophies at Miss Chantal's"! Thank you again and I hope that we will see you again in the fall. Maybe Gabi's joy in dancing will encourage her friends (and maybe her brother?) to join her at CDA next year! Best wishes and have a wonderful summer."

-Catherine Scholz  


"Thank you Chantal so much for a great year!!!! The recital was wonderful, and Lauren can't stop talking about how beautiful her trophy is. She is very proud of it and is showing it off to everyone (including her class at show & tell today).  My favourite part was the finale for sure. I highly recommend CDA to anyone who asks about recreational dance.  Your studio and staff are great & we are looking forward to next season."

- Alana and Lee Bayes


"Congratulations Chantal!!! The recitals were really fantastic!! I just wanted to say thank you for putting Samantha's picture in the program, she was totally thrilled!! I really appreciate all your help with the Copacabana costume. Samantha was thrilled! Have a great summer and we will definitely see you in September!"

-Jackie Paolucci 


"Well done Chantal! The recitals were all excellent and the kids had a great time. The programs are beautiful. Backstage was very calm and organized! I'm glad that everyone who put in all of the effort to make it happen got to enjoy the experience! Thanks for a great weekend."

-Tracey Cole 


"Chantal, the recital was awesome.  Thank you so much, I had a great time. The shows were amazing, they blew me away. My family was very very impressed.  The routines were well choreographed. I especially liked all the tap dancing, Alice in wonderland, Pirates and Avatar. Good job and I am very very very very impressed with CDA and its energy." 

-Sarah Asgari


"Chantal, I'd like to say thank you for another wonderful year of dance. Alyssa had a great time, and you have wonderful teachers. Thank you again for an amazing year and we'll see you in September."

-Annie Vrantsidis 


"Dear Chantal, I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful recital. It was truly amazing. It was so well organized and although it was very professional it was fun and insanely cute too. My daughter's performance brought my family to tears (in the best way). When Miss Valerie took to the stage, my daughter turned to her grandpa and said "oh! That's Miss Valerie! She's beautiful!" Thanks to all the staff for all the hard work. It was magical."

Chantal, thank you very much for the lovely CDA backpack full of goodies the volunteers received, it was totally unexpected and very generous! All of the parents said the show was amazing! I thought it was wonderful, too, that all of the dancers received trophies. You could see all the smiles on stage and hear how happy everyone was as they were leaving. That was a nice touch, thank you. See you through the summer on Tuesdays, and back at it in September!

We thought the recital was awesome. The kids all looked amazing. Your coaches are so talented. My daughter has enjoyed herself so much.

Hi Chantal, Just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed the recitals this weekend! We just loved watching all the dances, and it all flowed so beautifully! Loved the lighting too, so professional! My youngest is excited to start next year!


"Thank you so much for a fantastic recital. The quality of the dancing was amazing. My mother and mother-in-law also really enjoyed the show. I am very grateful that my daughter had the opportunity to do three dance classes this year. She had fun and learned alot.!! Thank you CDA!!"

Hi Chantal, wow what a great recital. The girls had a super time. Thanks for a wonderful year.


"It was an excellent weekend! Everything came together and there were so many volunteers! This actually made it easier Saturday when I volunteered. A big 'Thank you' to you and all the staff for an excellent end to the year"

Have a great summer and pass on our best to everyone at CDA...we had a great year and Paige is looking forward to the more dancing in the Fall.

My daughter was in Miss Valerie's primary ballet class and she loved her first recital. My family and I were extremely impressed with the recital, especially the talents of the dancers.


Thank you so much for a great year and a wonderful recital.
