Guest Artist Insight: Cleo Parker Robinson Dance

Cleo Parker Robinson Dance (CPRD) is a cultural ambassador, infusing vitality, innovation and education into every community we touch—around the corner and around the globe.

EVERY ACTION WE PERFORM IS DONE WITH THE INTENT TO TRANSFORM OURSELVES AND OTHERS; TO GIVE A VOICE TO THE VOICELESS; TO LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE AND UNDERSTANDING.

CPRD became a 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit organization in 1974, continuing to build upon its dance school and ensemble origins. In four decades, we have developed into an internationally esteemed organization that operates beyond the traditional performing arts model.

There are four pillars of the organization, namely, the CPRD Ensemble, Academy, Theatre, and Education programs. Working in concert, CPRD programs have created an oasis where a varied population—by gender, race, age and ethnicity—gather to study and appreciate a modern, cross-cultural approach to creative community development. Housed in the historic A.M.E. Shorter Church in Five Points, CPRD serves as a convener of community, art and dance.
