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.
