Welcome to  the Central PA Dance Workshop

​Where the community comes to dance!


CPDW is located in downtown State College, steps away from the Penn State University campus. 

We provide a well-rounded dance education for students ages 3 to adult.  Our faculty is trained to balance recreational dance and pre-professional training, with classes in a variety of styles, and performance opportunities for all ages.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

We hope you will join the students of the Central PA Dance Workshop for our annual school performance.  From the Cheshire Cat to Smoke Rings and the Tea Party to the Pool of Tears, you'll see all your Alice favorites portrayed in unique and creative ways through many styles of dance.

This video production will be streamed 

Saturday, May 22, 7:00 pm & Sunday, May 23, 3:00 pm
