For nearly 30 years CMDC has provided a safe and welcoming environment for students to pursue serious dance training at the Historic Dearborn Station in the South Loop.  We hope you will join us for class or performance soon!

CMDC’s signature style is classical ballet with an Afro-Caribbean flair.  The studio also offers classes and performances in a variety of styles.  Programs are as diverse as the students, and include traditional Classical Ballet, Pointe, Modern, Contemporary, Lyrical, Jazz, Latin, Tap, African, Belly Dance, Hip-Hop and Hiplet™

CMDC is the official home of the Hiplet Ballerinas!
