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 saw our first Cavod theatrical performance just recently--Seussical! My husband and I were so impressed by the quality of the production--the acting and singing were top-notch. I was also impressed by the amazing, colorful costumes and props--a feast for the eyes! To top it off, we had the privilege of meeting the executive director and her husband after the performance and getting to learn about the vision behind Cavod and the journey that has been taken to get to this point. New Holland is indeed blessed to have such a great theater in its midst!

My 9 year old daughter loves Cavod! She has always been creative, and dramatic, lol, so I knew acting would be perfect for her. I struggled to a find somewhere that I thought would help her utilize her talents and still be in a Christian atmosphere. A friend told me about Cavod, and it's amazing! They offer just about everything in the Arts, and it fills my heart with joy to finally have found a place for her to do what she loves and grow more in her faith!

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.

Thank you for allowing Breianna, her grandpa and myself to observe the Acting A session last evening! Breianna is very anxious to start acting classes and we hope you will be able to open the Monday 5:30 class, very soon!
