“At CDE the teachers and staff are amazing. The studio is clean, neat and ran professionally for our children. The commitment from everyone throughout the year really shines at our annual Dance Collage. We are like one big family.”
                                                 - Dawn Palmucci, Clark

“Center for Dance Education provides me with guidance and discipline that will stay with me forever. With the classes ranging from ballet to hip hop, each class allows the students to express themselves in their own outstanding way. With every class comes a warm-up and after every warm-up comes aches and pains – but of course it’s in a good way! With individual effort and assistance from the teacher, students can reach a goal that leaves them with self-confidence to last eternally. Throughout each class are friends that definitely get along and can help you with a step you’re having trouble with or sometimes just to have fun and talk! Each dancer can end the year satisfied that they had the opportunity to dance with a class of friends and under an excellent group of teachers.”

“Our daughter Jen has been dancing at CDE since she was 3 years old. This is her 11th year at CDE and she thinks of it as her home away from home. CDE is the perfect school for her: it is a serious dance school that has always been a place of positive reinforcement and encouragement. Her teachers are both mentors and friends, and she dances with the nicest group of girls. We’re proud members of the CDE family!”
                                                - Mandelblatt, Westfield

“ We have been a CDE family since 1998. We have watched our daughter Yasmine grow from an uncoordinated toddler to a graceful, bright and talented young lady. The teachers at CDE cultivate not only dance skills, but encourage students to care for themselves, building confidence and poise!”
- Jennifer Resil-Johnson

“My daughter has been a CDE dancer for 5 years and loves it. When you dance at CDE you become part of a family, the staff is wonderful and the performances are spectacular.”
                                                - Christine Thornton, Clark

“CDE is a wonderful experience for our whole family. We find they have developed the perfect blend of fun, dance education, fitness and emotional growth.
Our girls, Kim and Kathleen, were able to pursue the creative side of their personalities with the help of the staff and instructors at CDE. They have matured into well rounded young women and CDE was a huge part of the development.
Kim was able to use her training at CDE to become an integral member of the #2 ranked dance team at the 2009 College Dance Championship for St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
Kathleen continues to excel in the Talented and Gifted Dance program at Somerset County Vocational High School.”
                                               - Mary O’Donnel and Tom Pickert, Westfield

“Center for Dance Education is a top-notch dance studio offering a very professional, yet nurturing learning environment. The annual show-stopping performances of the Nutcracker and dance recitals are a true testament to the high-end level of experience, passion, love and the art of teaching that Evy and Christina, and all the instructors, display to all their students!”
- Mrs. Payami (two daughters currently enrolled – been with CDE since 2003)
“My two daughters have been dancing at CDE for five years. I am so pleased with the professionalism and caring of the faculty and staff, as I watch my daughters continue to develop as dancers.”
