About Classic Dance Academy

“Inspiring Excellence”

YAGP Awards: Hope Award & Junior Grand Prix winners, Best School and Outstanding Teacher Michelle Dolighan-Rodenbeck

Classic Dance Academy (CDA) is Centennial's home for dance excellence! 

Classic Dance Academy opened in July of 2010 under the direction of Colorado’s own Michelle Dolighan-Rodenbeck, from Aurora. Her professional career as a Principal Ballerina with Colorado Ballet led her to an extensive teaching career throughout Colorado, including several years as the Director of Colorado Ballet’s Academy.  She felt there was a need for a special kind of dance school, a place with a perfect mix of high level dance training coupled with a caring, positive environment where young people can thrive.
CDA quickly became a “melting pot” of incredibly talented young dancers who care for and support each other as a dance family while enjoying the rigors of disciplined, high level dance training in all genres.
Our faculty consists of experienced professionals who are a combination of structure, artistry and precision for the highest quality dance education. We are committed to INSPIRING EXCELLENCE in every person that enters our door.

Come join our CDA family, every first trial class is FREE!
