I am so happy to have found Cavod, a place I can trust with the amazing gift of dance as worship and expression of who God made each one to be! Huge thanks to Connie and all the Cavod teachers for being steadfast leaders of the kids and adults in our community who step out and vulnerably to try something new. I’m 51 years old and I decided to try a dance class for the first time: worship dance. My daughter is 18 and she started various dance classes at Cavod when she was 16. Thank you Cavod for welcoming every age group. Thank you for caring about skills and hearts /lives of each dancer.

All my children attend Cavod for dance and music lessons. We have been a Cavod family for 11 years. Our family thinks of Cavod as their second home. We love the Christian environment and it brings us comfort in knowing our children are safe and the music, costumes and choreography is tasteful. Our children feel loved, encouraged, inspired and supported by their instructors. Cavod has a playroom for younger children while siblings are in classes. They also have a great cafe area where the students are often found doing school work and socializing with friends. The parents too also can gather and socialize while their children are in classes. I love how Cavod has created a safe place where their students can express their God given talents and feel loved.

My kids have gone to Cavod for almost 4 years and it has been a wonderful fit for our family. My daughter wanted to dance but I had concerns about what kind of environment she would be in. Cavod is a warm and welcoming place where kids are safe and encouraged to be themselves. We have found a place to grow as Christ followers and made lifelong friendships.

Cavod's teachers are top quality; well educated and experienced in their respective genres. Cavod offers several adult classes. I take 2; Tap and ballet and the teachers are phenomenal and in my case, very understanding with my limitations. I came to Cavod after years of being in a studio I was very involved with and then closed. Cavod has everything that we dreamed about having in the former studio; an ideal location, ample parking, a cafe, and a playroom for non-dancing children.

My son has taken theatre classes for 2 years here and tap for one year. It is a wonderful, welcoming place. Everyone is very friendly. We also appreciate the Christian environment and knowing that our son is being taught to perform to the God's glory. I would highly recommend Cavod!

My daughter goes to the Mannheim location. I can’t say enough about the encouraging atmosphere she experiences at dance. All the teachers she has had have been so professional and always point the girls to Christ.

I've seen a few theatre productions as well as several dance performances at Cavod and they are always well done, artistic, and moving. I would definitely recommend attending any show they're putting on!

All 6 of my children have attended Cavod for many years. The values Cavod carries is valued by my family. Truly a hidden gem. Their technique in all the classes will not disappoint a growing dancer. Wouldn't choose another studio to call family.

The best academy in Lancaster County!!! They care about all students and everyone is welcome! My daughter started dance classes there when she was 4 years old and started theater when she was 8. We only have good memories!

Amazing place! Great dance and performing arts studio. Good quality education in the performing arts. The teachers are wonderful and other students are very friendly. They offer classes for both kids and adults. I believe this studio will continue to expand and grow even more in the coming years.

My daughter is in her 6th year at Cavod and she has blossomed into a beautiful young women. Cavod has become her happy place and she has made lifelong friends here. She has grown not only technically but spiritually as well. She found her thing and a place to call home! When we moved to Lancaster and she had to switch schools I promised her no matter how far we moved I would never take Cavod away. And now my stepdaughter is enjoying it as well. Thank you for giving me a safe place to teach my children everything from dance to acting to loving and accepting others! And that they are special because of whose they are!

We love Cavod! Our daughter’s current dance teacher does a great job making ballet fun for very young kids and we love that she shares Jesus’ love for the girls during class �

We are so thankful for Cavod!! This is our daughter's 8th year in ballet, 4th year at Cavod and her 1st year on Dance Company II. We appreciate the Cecchetti ballet technical training/syllabus - offered no where else in the area. Not only does Cavod give excellent ballet/dance training, but also, it is a place of spiritual formation and sisterhood. We are so thankful to have found a dance studio that puts dance in it's rightful place - under the Lordship of Christ and for God's glory and renown.

This is an amazing school. Its presence is desperately needed since it is one of so few Jesus centered dance and theatre schools available in the area. The director and staff are always approachable. The teachers work so hard to get each one to perform at their personal best level. I have adored all of the teachers I have ever had.
