Philosophy

CMS Dance Company was established in the Tampa Bay area in 2016 by Artistic Director Christal Shurley. CMSDC seeks to provide not only elite training in dance for recreational and pre-professional dancers, but also encourage a love of dance as forms of exercise, stress relief and therapy to non-dancers. All programs offered at CMSDC offer a positive outlet for expression and foster acceptance and creativity no matter the goal. Programs are offered both on and off-site and include: Flairs Competition and Show Company for the more serious dance student, summer intensive camps, Silver Stars classes for our senior citizens, Meditative Movement sessions and instructor certification for exercise, Biblical meditation and stress relief, and our customized Dance Athletics program utilizing dance techniques for professional and amateur athletes. Private lessons, custom choreography, master classes and auditions adjudication are also offered on and off site. CMSDC is proud to partner and work with performers and athletes associated with the Miss America Pageant, Disney Performing Arts, figure skaters with the USFSA, NFL, NHL and MLB players. "I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or learn to live by practicing living..... one becomes, in some area, an athlete of God." - Martha Graham, The "Picasso of Dance"
