  • Why Choose Cody Center?

“Great teachers with an abundance of different classes to choose from for all ages!” - Google Review   

All students of any ability are welcome in our programs.  The staff strives to foster self-confidence, discipline and a love of the arts by creating a positive, nurturing and structured environment where students can grow and develop into strong, talented and creative young adults.

 

Cody Center for the Performing Arts has been a part of the Big Horn Basin for 38 years. In that time CCPA has taken many students to represent the state of Wyoming at Dance Excellence, an international festival of dance held in Los Angeles, California. Students have also performed in New York City at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, attended many conventions in the area, and have successfully competed and performed at several national and regional events and competitions. Many former CCPA students have gone on to careers in dance as studio directors, dance teachers, and performers.  

 

CCPA is the home of Studio Theatre at CCPA, Cody’s only professional theatre company. Studio Theatre at CCPA creates and presents dramatic works that highlight significant historical and social issues, empowers women and fosters creativity in all ages

 

With the addition of CCGA in 2021, we now offer comprehensive gymnastics training as well as a variety of tumbling classes for all ages and abilities. CCGA is home to the Valor USA Gymnastics team.
