Clear Dance Initiative, founded by Chad Vaught, is an in studio workshop with an innovative approach to educating and training dancers. At Clear Dance Initiative, we believe that young dancers need to be given the tools and information to succeed inside and outside of the dance studio.


To equip dance students with information and strategies to empower them for success in the professional dance world and in life

Meet Chad Vaught

Chad Vaught started Clear Dance Initiative with one vision in mind: giving students the tools to be successful and confident… inside the studio and in life. He now travels the midwest alongside a dedicated group of dance professionals, sharing their passion of dance and helping students find CLARITY in their goals.


Chad is helping the next generation of dance students define CLEAR goals, inside and outside of the dance studio, through creative team-building activities and CLARITY strategy sessions. Chad believes that establishing CLEARer goals will not only lead to happier students, but also steer them to the path of success.

I loved the CDI experience! It was packed full of detailed learning from incredible teachers! The diverse styles of classes pushed every dancer in new ways and the CLARITY Strategy session helped guide us with setting future goals!


I have watched my children’s love of dance increase so much since attending Clear Dance Initiative. The staff was so positive and creative and fun. My children continue to talk about their experience and work on perfecting the combos they learned a few weeks ago.


I loved the faculty that worked with me to improve my technique and confidence. CDI pushed me out of my comfort zone to explore new areas of dance and by the end of the weekend I was a stronger, more well-rounded dancer.
