Citadel Dance & Music Center

The Citadel Dance Center was founded by Eileen Cropley in 1998. The old Salvation Army building at 91 Hinkley Street in Benton Harbor was renovated to become the Citadel Dance Center. The Center was dedicated to providing excellent dance training for the residents of Benton Harbor. The vision was to provide a Center which would draw students and teachers from all over and would instill a sense of excitement, curiosity, and the discipline of dance as an art form and a way of life.

It is the goal of The Citadel to provide the opportunity for its intensive dancers to further their training toward a life in dance in a supportive, professional, and challenging environment. Dancers in The Citadel Dance Companies are passionate, dedicated , and committed to dance. Some may be moving toward an undergrad program in dance with dreams of a professional career, while others are purely driven by their passion for dance and strive to graduate from our program.
