The Cleveland Dance Project

is a dance, choreography and performance outlet for dancers (18+) who want to continue performing and/or choreographing into their adult life in the greater Cleveland/Akron area. 

“I have found a home in cdp”

I have had the pleasure of being involved as both a dancer and choreographer. The Cleveland Dance Project has allowed me to connect with my biggest passion again and to share this passion with others. CDP is a big family and is centered around fun, but we still focus on being professional and learning during the process. Win, win!


-Heather Sakai, CDP Dancer & Choreographer since 2017
