Summer camp 2023 was AWESOME!

Fall Classes

September 11th | Fall Classes begin!

We’ve created a space at CDW that is inclusive, supportive and welcoming for dancers of all ages and abilities in the Capital Area.

We’ve worked hard to set ourselves apart and create a studio home that just feels different- the type of space that as parents ourselves, we would want our own children to be a part of, whether they were new to dance/cheer or had been training for a long time.

We are so proud of what we’ve built, and our family is growing this fall! Join us on 8/30 or 9/7 and don't forget to register! Classes start the week of September 11th.

Check out our Fall schedule!

2023-2024 Season Registration

August 30th | 5:00-7:00pm

September 7th | 5:00-7:00pm

We are excited to be offering two Registration Night events this year! Registration Night is a great way for new students to come take tours of our beautiful studio, meet our amazing teachers, sign up for a FREE trial class, check out our dance wear and swag, and much more. 

Your Dancer's Schedule

Please be sure to review your parent portal to double check the classes your dancer is enrolled in. Again, we ask that you please be flexible these first few weeks, as we get to know your dancers. It is important to us that your dancer is in the appropriate class, at the right time, so they can have their best dance year and shine! 

Arrival Procedures

Please make sure your dancer arrives on time for dance, but no more than 10 minutes prior. Dancers should arrive dressed for dance and with a small dance bag with their items in it. They will bring their dance bags into the classroom and leave their outdoor shoes in the lobby. They may also bring a refillable water bottle, as we have a bubbler here in the building. Please do not bring additional items like toys/stuffed animals. Teachers will greet students at the door and escort them to the correct classroom, leaving outdoor shoes at marked, designated classroom area mats.

If you have any questions, the very best way to reach us is via email at 

or call


Please be patient with us as we navigate schedules, open new classes for those on wait lists, and get ready for our new year!

Traffic flow

In order to keep all our dancers' safe, we ask that when driving into Cenfer Commons, you pull in toward the back of the parking lot headed to the mailboxes, turn left BEHIND the building, and circle around to the front to either park or drop off your dancer.  If you are parked alongside the front entrance, please hug the RIGHT side of the drive, closest to the road and watch your dancers for passing cars, particularly these first few weeks. There is also available parking in the upper lot to the right of our building in Cenfer Commons. We ask all families to drive very slowly and to be on high alert for children in the parking lots. 

End of Class Procedures

Your dancer's teacher/staff member will escort students out of the classroom to the waiting area where you may pick them up. Due to the number of dancers in each class, we encourage you to wait outside while the weather is nice. Our goal is to dismiss each class in a timely manner so we may get the next class in on time and in an organized fashion.

Experience The Difference

Better Together

Here at Creative Dance Workshop, we are thrilled to offer a quality dance and cheer education for every level student or athlete in our community. From tiny dancers to the more experienced dancer or athlete, our family has something great to offer you!

Formerly the McKenna Dance Center and Creative Dance Workshop of Bow, the two studios merged in 2022 with the same goal: Strive to provide an excellent dance education in a FUN and WELCOMING environment for all of our students. Your child needs community now more than ever and parents need support more than ever. We partner with you to help grow confident, independent children through dynamic, supportive dance classes and our All Star Cheer programs.

Together, we work to make sure your child has the very best support, guidance, training, and encouragement possible. It’s important to find just the right home for your dancer or athlete to thrive in, and here at CDW, that’s just what you’ll find.

When you experience the CDW Difference, you’ll see why we aren’t like anyone else!

We’ve created a space at CDW and UAS that is inclusive, supportive and welcoming for dancers and athletes of all ages and abilities in the Capital Area.

We’ve worked hard to set ourselves apart and create a studio home that just feels different- the type of space that as parents ourselves, we would want our own children to be a part of, whether they were new to dance/cheer or had been training for a long time.


Our teachers and staff are well-trained, dedicated and committed to each and every person that walks in our door.

We focus on our core values that drive every part of our studio: Excellence, Community, Integrity, Kindness, Trust & Fun! Our whole team strives to make everyone’s experience at Creative Dance Workshop welcoming, organized, full of kindness and the epitome of Family & Community.

Our Sponsors

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our incredible sponsors, whose unwavering support has played a pivotal role in the success of our Ultimate All-Star Cheerleading Program. Your generous contributions have not only reduced the financial constraints of competitive cheerleading but also inspired athletes to pursue their dreams. We are profoundly grateful for your commitment to the sport and for helping us create a thriving community of passionate and very skillful athletes. Thank you for standing by us and empowering the next generation of athletes to shine brightly on the mat.

We believe in creating a safe space where individuals of all backgrounds, abilities, and identities can express themselves through the art of dance. In our studio, diversity is celebrated, and every person is valued for their unique qualities. We foster an environment that encourages mutual respect, understanding, and support, allowing our dancers to thrive and grow both artistically and personally. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced dancer, you will find a warm and welcoming community that embraces you for who you are. Step into our studio, leave your worries at the door, and join us on a journey where creativity knows no bounds and acceptance knows no limits.
