About Children's Center for Dance Education

Founded in 1995, The Children’s Center for Dance Education has forged a new model for a ballet organization through innovative programming, artistic excellence, and extensive community outreach. Located in Evansville, Indiana, CCDE is a 501c(3) organization and is a regional leader in creating broader access to dance. Our work is grounded in the belief that all children regardless of race, creed, or economic status should have the opportunity to dance and to experience dance firsthand.
