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.

We LOVE Cavod! 5 of our children are taking classes at Cavod. We are incredibly thankful that they are all on scholarship. The four girls are in the Friends in Motion classes. They enjoy participating with other children who have special needs. The teachers are caring and make the classes fun! Our children have also enjoyed several of the summer camps, ballet, acting class, musical theater, vocal ensemble and piano. The Christ centered culture at Cavod has the kids as well us as parents looking forward to Monday and Thursday evenings. Thank you Cavod!

My daughter loves dancing and singing at CAVOD. It is like going to summer camp all year long. She calls it her home away from home; a place she feels loved and valued.

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.

Cavod is an absolutely amazing dance and performing arts organization. They truly care about the children they teach. My daughter has been attending for almost 4 years and it’s amazing to see her grow and blossom.

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.

Well, we don’t have “Performing Arts” in our name for nothing! Dance and Acro classes perform in the Spring Dance Concert in June. In addition to selling tickets to that off-site performance, there is a costume fee due in the fall and we do a fundraiser to help offset the costs for you.  
We offer a visitor’s week each year where friends and family are invited into our rooms to observe class. You can come in person or virtually, but classroom visits may only take place during these two weeks. During classes, we invite you to enjoy our café or playroom while you wait for your child.
Cavod offers Ballet Classes at their New Holland, PA, and Manheim, PA locations.
