Life-long dancer Niki Jernigan-Watkins had a dream of turning her passion and talent for dance into a teaching career and bringing the magic of dance alive for others. Driven by her passion and talents, Miss Niki as she’s fondly known by students, is realizing that dream for a sixth year running as the owner and artistic director of Cumming Dance Academy. Given her professional history and accolades for performance and teaching, it’s no surprise that Cumming Dance Academy has succeeded with Miss Niki at the helm.
A marker of the academy’s success came in 2009 when Cumming Dance Academy’s new facility opened. The 7,000 square-foot facility located at 419 Tribble Gap Road in Cumming affords the academy more space for staff, students, and parents. In 2012, CDA continued to grow with the expansion of and new location of CDA II Performance Academy. A 1,500 square foot space where students can not only continue their dance training; but CDA II Performance Academy now offers classes in voice, drama, acting, musical theater and more!
Cumming Dance Academy is a place of instruction for both serious and recreational dancers and offers classes for children from 18 months to adult. CDA classes are led by a professional staff with decades of experience and impressive performance credits. CDA has many performance groups for the more dedicated dancers, that include “Miss Niki’s Elite Performance Classes”, Jr. Apprentice Company, Jr. Company and Sr. Company.
