San Diego Civic Dance Arts

The mission of San Diego Civic Dance Arts is to support and promote a premiere dance arts program and an appreciation of the arts, in cooperation with the San Diego Park and Recreation Department Dance Arts Program. Since the 1980s, the San Diego Civic Dance Association, a non-profit, public benefit corporation, has provided volunteer assistance to the Civic Dance Arts program. The SDCDA helps teachers update and perfect their skills, by sponsoring dance clinics and workshops. It offers student scholarships, organizes shoe fairs, and works to allow performances on a grander scale by providing, among other things, stage equipment,and costume design and fabrication.

With a current enrollment of 2,600 students, the Civic Dance Arts Program has been the crown jewel of San Diego's cultural and recreational offerings continuously for over fifty years. Thousands of children look upon their dance experiences with this city program as a never-to-be-forgotten joy of childhood. As adults, they enroll their own children in the program, and often continue to participate in the extensive adult classes offered, as indicated by some students well into their 70's. Many former students have not strayed far from the arts for career choices, but nearly all feel their lives have been enormously enriched by participation in this activity called dance.
