St. Cecilia Dance Academy (SCDA) is a program designed for girls ages 3-14. SCDA will provide budding dancers in the Nashville area with excellent training in dance techniques, communication, and artistry. Through their introduction to and immersion in the universal language of dance, girls will learn to express their God-given beauty and dignity through their growing bodies. Dance also helps students grow in important virtues like discipline, grace, perseverance, healthy self-expression, resilience, critical thinking, a broad sense of musicality, and collaboration skills crucial for a well-lived life. Most importantly, the fine arts—and dance in a very particular way—open young people up to all that is good, true, and beautiful as they use their bodies, minds, and talents to glorify God.
