Bringing high quality professional dance and superlative classical and contemporary dance training to the DC metro area.
  • We love you Sarah Levy! Yesterday we threw a surprise party for Sarah Levy, CityDance Community Programs Manager, who will be attending the University of Chicago to pursue a Masters in Social Service Administration. She has worked for CityDance for three years and her positive and dedicated attitude has made an impact on hundreds of dancers lives, as well as CityDance as a whole. She will be missed, but we can’t wait to see where her journey takes her!

    "I am honored to have worked with so many talented, intelligent and dedicated people at the downtown office, Strathmore, and all of our CityDance school sites and community centers.

    One of my favorite things about CityDance is that the school & conservatory and community programs are united in understanding that students are not connected to CityDance just because a parent signed him or her up for class or a parent needs someone to watch their child after school. Students are connected to CityDance because of something bigger and deeper. CityDance offers a safe space where students are able to create connections with their peers and instructors so that they may openly express themselves. This is what allows students to ultimately experience and enjoy their bodies in intentional movement. An experience that any staff member who has ever been moved by dancing or watching dance, understands. That to me is what makes this organization and all of you so very special.

    I will be a lifelong supporter of CityDance and look forward to watching this organization pave the way for what equal access to high-quality dance education truly looks like in DC.”
