Welcome To Children's Dance Theater

Our studio’s goal is to provide age appropriate choreography, costumes and music that challenges dancers to achieve their personal best in a positive, rewarding and accepting environment. We offer a variety of class styles from ballet to musical theater and each program is tailored to promote fun and a love of dance.

Our dancers are more than just students to us – they are family. Our faculty, mentor and guide every student that enters the studio to help them achieve their best. We believe that confidence, poise, dedication and self-expression are just as important as dance itself. Through dance training and performance opportunities our dancers develop into beautiful dancers as well as amazing human beings.

We are proud to have an award winning competition team, fantastic summer theatre productions and two amazing classical ballet productions each year.

Our two locations in Auburn and Federal Way Washington provide a home away from home for our students.


On March 12th, masks will become optional at our facilities.
