WE ARE STILL REGISTERING NEW STUDENTS- CLASSES START SEPT 4TH!GIVE US A CALL TODAY! WE CAN’T WAIT TO SHARE OUR LOVE AND KNOWLEDGE OF DANCE!
WHY CHOOSE CANDY APPLES DANCE CENTER:
My daughter started dancing at Candy Apples at 3 years old. We didn’t know anything about CADC or know anyone who danced there; we simply chose it because it was close to home & the class schedule worked for our excited little ballerina. We had no idea at the time what a great decision it would be or where it would lead our daughter. Nine years later, that little preschooler is now 12 years old, taking nine classes a week and starting her 4th year on the competition team. She has discovered that dance is her passion and what she wants to do for a living. Candy Apples and the amazing teachers she’s had there have ignited that passion and supported it & kept it going with every class, every recital, every competition. They push & encourage her, they have her best interests at heart and we couldn’t ask for a better studio or better teachers for her to spend so many hours with every week. We love that they have known her since she was so small and watching the progress she makes under their guidance from year to year is incredible. We feel so lucky that blindly choosing CADC all those years ago turned out to be one of the best decisions we could have made for her.
My daughter is going into her 4th year at Candy Apples and 3rd year competing. We love everything about this studio. Cathy and Erin really know my daughter, not just in the classroom or on the stage but they know her as a person/kid. They push her each week to be better than she was the week before. Madelynn gets excited to go to dance. She has made some of the best friendships any kid would want. These kids do everything together they really are best friends and each other’s biggest cheerleaders. I as a parent have made some pretty amazing friendships from this studio. All around this is my daughters 2nd family and 2nd home and we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. We are blessed with a caring educated staff and a dance family.

We asked our “Dance Mom’s” why they choose CADC year after year, here’s what a few of them had to say!
Lori Jones-Stokes 19 years ago we walked into CADC and they met us with open arms and we have been family ever since. All five of my children danced at CADC at one time. My eldest daughter Janae danced, competed and was a demonstrator for 14 years before a knee injury did not permit her to dance any longer. My youngest, Darius, at age 3, was just “taking one class” because he wanted to dance like his older sister. Now he’s 16, still dancing while playing football and basketball and holds many dance titles. I never dreamed of being a dance mom this long, but I have no regrets because at CADC everyone is truly a family. Our children have made forever friendships and the parents have too all while being taught the art of dance in the most amazing way. We support each other even outside of dance. The bond created over the many years at CADC is forever unbreakable.
Teresa Fox CADC is an award winning studio with caring and compassionate faculty that encourage students to succeed both on and off the dance floor. They recognize that each student is unique and focus on strengthening their individual talents that when put together collectively create a beautiful mosaic.
Jodi Mattocks Hoover We are starting our 6th year at CADC, and Aleigh’s time there under the care and instruction from the faculty has taken her from a tiny dancer to a graceful young lady! She has made wonderful friendships, learned the value of hard work and commitment, and above all, has gained poise and confidence that will serve her well wherever life may take her. I am thankful to know she is in good hands when she walks in that door every day, and so excited to see what the new dance year brings at Candy Apples!
Julie Mathews Martin Kara starting dancing a older then most of the kids. She was ten when she started. She has been at CADC for 4 years and on the competition team for 3! From the moment she stepped into the studio the instructors here were nothing but encouraging, supportive, and excited for Kara. For myself being a new dance mom I can’t say enough wonderful things about the parents at the studio~ so supportive! Kara has come such a LONG way we can’t believe it. Dance has become her love, passion, and comfort. We owe that to CADC!💜🍎👯
Chella Ulrich Wherley Making the decision to come dance at CADC was one of the best decisions we made . Eva has been in the competition team for 7 years now . The teachers have embraced Eva and have nurtured her love to dance . Eva not only is learning dance but has grown in her self confidence and self esteem . She has made some great friends and we love our dance family . We live out of town and drive 30 minutes to come to dance but seeing how far Eva has grown as a dancer makes it all worth it ! 💚
