Creative Expressions Dance Academy


Founded 2022, Creative Expressions Dance Academy was created to allow dancers the opportunity to express themselves through movement.  We aim to inspire others in all that we do in and outside of the studio.

Mrs. Umeko Terry-Leak

"CEDA is the place where all children can come to learn and grow. We aim to develop them as the wonderful individuals they are."

Miss. Ny'Asia Leggett

Pre-Level Student Teacher

"CEDA doesn’t just teach us how to dance, CEDA teaches us how to be presentable in life and it’s also inspires us. Another reason why I love CEDA is because of the very amazing instructor we have Ms. Terry. She pushes us to be better young ladies in life!”

Miss. Jayla Bethea

Pre-Level Student Teacher

"CEDA is my therapy. Not only do I love dance, but I love the people too. I get to meet so many new people. The one thing I love about CEDA is Ms. Terry because she taught me to never give up and to keep pushing myself. Without her, I would not know what to do with my life so I thank her for that.”
