CDT was founded in 1985 by Artistic Directors Joyce Hurley, Kim Maselli, and Administrative Director Lori Sorensen. These three professisonal dancers were inspired to train and pass on their knowledge to future generations of aspiring dancers.
For the past 32 years CDT has instilled the love of dance to thousands of children in our community. In a nuturing environment our faculty trains students from beginners to advanced dancers, from recreational instruction to professional careers.
Our daily pre-professional ballet program grooms the advanced dancer for a future career or an exclusive university dance program. California Dance Theatre offers a highly credentialed faculty with international ballet companies, Broadway credits, television and film resumes.
