Our early dance programs provide your little one a fun and creative environment taught by the best dance educators in the region.
Students will build their skills and knowledge of dance and classical ballet by learning awareness of their arms, heads and body placement along with more complex movements of the feet and legs.
As students move into the Intermediate Division, emphasis is placed on strength, flexibility and rhythm as well as mastery of their basic skills, body placement and classical positions.
As students enter the Advanced Division, their attention turns to "the whole picture" as they gain a comprehensive understanding of how their upper and lower bodies work together. They learn complex combinations quickly and focus their energies on strength, refinement, confidence and risk taking.
A program unique to CCD, Ballet 9+ is specifically designed to help teens and pre-teens “catch-up” on ballet through an accelerated learning process. Before they know it, they are prepared to integrate into our regular ballet programs alongside students their own age. Teen students with full extracurricular schedules can continue their pursuit of ballet with Open Teen classes.
Perfect for adults new to dance or those with experience in other dance forms who would like to learn more. Have fun learning innovative ways to move and challenge your pre-conceived notions about this artistic expression.
This inclusive class has a specifically designed adaptive curriculum to provide kids of ALL abilities with a therapeutic dance experience. Students are able to be successful and explore dance while being in a safe environment. Students will gain increased body awareness, develop fundamental motor skills, improve self-esteem, concentration and focus, and have fun expressing themselves creatively.
Boys and Men's Classes
These classes are designed to be fun, energetic and physical. Gentlemen learn bravura turns and jumps, and work on strengthening the muscles they will eventually use to partner women.
Created for the professional dancer, these donation based classes are offered daily in ballet and modern/contemporary styles. Classes are drop in friendly and are designed to offer local artists professional level technique at whatever rate he or she is able to pay.
