Our Mission Statement

Dance For All

Creative Dance Expressions is a mobile Dance Company in Central Florida that is dedicated to creating unique Dance Programs designed for students of all ages and levels of development. Creative Dance opens new worlds of knowledge, creativity, and self-expression. Fostering the Auditory, Visual, and Kinesthetic Learning Styles through empowerment and encouragement enables the Discovery of Dance within each student.

 Dance is a Magical Art Form

Not in the sense of magic tricks, but as we are inspired to move our bodies…the magic
happens when that movement is transcended into Dance! The results are found in the SMILES of each and every Dance Student, upon that Discovery of Dance and Ability… the Dance becomes theirs through the shared experience of Class!

“To Dance is to Discover a New World of Sensory Awareness!”

Meet Tanya Kaye Lewis Our Creator & Instructor

Tanya Kaye Lewis

At Disney, dancing with our Guests with Disabilities touched my heart dearly!  I never would have thought it possible to open a dance business in Central Florida where the central focus would be designing Dance Classes for Students with Special Needs!  THANK YOU to all the fellow Cast Members I have met along my Disney Journey!  Your Lessons in Leadership, Belief in Dreams Coming True Always, and Support have meant more than words can express!  And as the music plays…the Students in ALL Creative Dance Expressions’ Programs squeal with pure JOY and DANCE…Ability is Discovered and Realized…and Magical Moments SHINE!

“We are so pleased we encouraged Tanya to pursue her dream of founding a dance business to benefit individuals with Special Needs, since we saw how our children responded to her Creative Dance Program. This is a dance and music program that provides strong educational and behavioral components as well. Even the children with wheelchairs participate and enjoy it! Our children feel a sense of accomplishment and pride when Tanya rewards them during and at the end of each class. We commend you, Tanya!”

“Tanya has been coming to Quest, Inc. programs for several years. Tanya’s Creative Dance Classes allow the individuals that we serve to creatively express themselves, socialize and have FUN!  What we appreciate most about Tanya’s classes is her ability to work with individuals of all ability levels to ensure that everyone is able to participate. Tanya’s Creative Dance Classes are definitely the highlight of our week at Quest. We are lucky to have such a great Partner!  Thank you Tanya.”
