Coastal Dance and Music Academy’s annual studio showcase is held at the Performing Arts Center in SLO at the end of June, and showcases our dance and musical theater students. We also offer our music, voice, and theater students the opportunity to participate in our recitals which are held in December and June at a more intimate venue. Each student is encouraged to participate in our showcase and recitals, but it is not a requirement. Costumes are purchased by the student, and are reasonably priced and age-appropriate.
CDMA Artistic Mission
Coastal Dance and Music Academy is committed to providing professional instruction and performing experiences in dance, theater, music and voice in a family friendly, state-of-the-art facility, for students of all ages and abilities. We use a positive and supportive teaching approach, which is technically based, age appropriate, non-competitive and fosters self-esteem, discipline, creativity, and self-confidence.
CDMA Financial Mission
Our financial mission is the fiscal stability and growth of our business, which will allow us to continue to enrich the lives of students at Coastal Dance and Music Academy and provide a solid foundation for growth of the Coastal Performing Arts Foundation. Our immediate goals are to pay off our long-term debt, repay our shareholders, and provide an industry comparable salary for management by maximizing our student enrollment, increasing our operational efficiency and actively managing our finances.
Our vision for Coastal Dance and Music Academy is to continue as the premier performing arts academy on the Central Coast, committed to expanding performing arts opportunities for the residents of San Luis Obispo County. Through our commitment we will educate, enrich, and transform the lives of our students, creating confidant, responsible and inspired individuals with the ability to move into the future with passion and creativity.
