Come and find your creative side with us at Cody Center for the Performing Arts. CCPA has been a part of the Big Horn basin for 37 years offering dance instruction to ages 2 and up in creative movement, ballet, tap, jazz, modern, hip hop, and pointe. We also offer theatre classes and gymnastics for dancers.
Over the years CCPA has taken many groups to represent the state of Wyoming at Dance Excellence, an international festival of dance, in Los Angeles, California. Students have also performed in NYC at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, attended many conventions in the area, and have successfully competed at Spotlight Events, KARS, Big Sky State Games, and 24/7 competitions.
CCPA has had many students continue in the dance profession becoming studio directors, dance teachers, and performers. All students of any ability are welcome at CCPA and will grow and learn in a positive, nurturing and structured environment. Dance instills, self-confidence, discipline, determination, creativity, health and body awareness, social skills and most of all at CCPA we teach kindness, love, and the support of one another.
Angie and all of the teachers at CCPA are always there for an encouraging word and have the unique ability to bring out the performer in all of us.
Studio Theatre at CCPA is the only professional black-box theatre in the Big Horn Basin. We provide theatre education as well as professional performances in an intimate, 55-seat setting. During the summer, we present plays based on Cody history and offer performing arts summer camps for kids in 1st through 9th grade. During the school year, Studio Theatre provides after-school arts programming and presents provocative works for adults that speak to social issues of our time.
