Our Essence

We perform to transform ourselves and others -
giving a voice to the voiceless.

Cleo Parker Robinson Dance leverages the universal language of dance to honor African American heritage, explore the human condition, and offer a transformative experience through physical movement.

Ignite the dancer in you.

From children as young as three and students pursuing dance on a collegiate level to adult fitness classes designed with fun in mind, CPRD offers a wide range of classes for every skill level.
