I've been to many studios in southern and central California and Civic Dance Center is one of the best studios around. The students immediately make newcomers feel welcome and part of their dance "family". The faculty is experienced and well-trained. There are so many performance opportunities like their annual Nutcracker, Gala, and ballet company show. Whether you just want to enjoy dance as a hobby or are a serious student wanting to pursue dance as a career, this studio is fit for all!!!
Civic truly trains dedicated, versatile, positive, well-rounded dancers who find happiness in their art. With my experience, I truly believe Civic Dance Center is the best studio in Bakersfield!!

Any successful person knows, "the harder [you] work, the luckier [you] get."
The owners and instructors at Civic work extremely hard, and are therefore lucky to produce such wonderful dancers. The students who work the hardest are lucky to get great roles.
The older dancers are gracious and joyful role models, eager to nurture their younger peers love for dance.
Everyone knows that casting (for anything in life) is touchy, and the owners and instructors take great efforts to discourage any hurt feelings or any negative behavior associated with the studio in any way.
The dancers who you most often see on stage are the same dancers who you most often see in the studio jumping, bending, sweating, and sharing their love for dance.

The owners of Civic Dance are both wonderful, understanding people. However the main director of both the ballet company and jazz troupe as well as the choreographer for the studio shows is very controlling towards the students. Only young students who have parent involvement and extensive enrollment are noticed and advanced, as well as given better roles than their particular level. Unless you are willing, as a parent to advance your child in order for them to grow at the studio- I would suggest another studio where they will be noticed for their ability, not their connections. The emotional stress put on the older dancers by the director during shows and in classes is extensive, unnecessary and overall petty. The students seem dance for the teacher rather than for their own personal joy. Until this director has less control, I would suggest not sending your child to this political studio full of favoritism and instead give them the fun, joyful experience that dance should be.

I enjoy watching performances at the Civic Dance Center. They have shows for ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop and more. I particularly enjoy watching their annual performance of the Nut Cracker, it is always a good time.
