Professional Training Center

CCD’s donation-based daily professional classes provide a training center for local professionals to develop their craft in a variety of dance techniques. Halfway between Boulder and Denver, these classes serve the entire local dance community with offerings driven by our commitment to high quality dance education at all levels. We offer the program in partnership with the hand-selected group of teachers, often styled as an open company class connecting students with working professionals. Classes are donation based and drop-in friendly.

All classes are drop-in available with tuition by donation ($5-$15 recommended).  Payments are made directly to the teacher.  Studios are available for pre-warm up 15 minutes before classes begin.

Ground: Week one will explore the act of finding ground.  Ground first as our base: our support system for all action.  Ground second as the source of sustenance: where find our nourishment and cellular support.  Ground third as a guttural deepening:  where we find the push and pull of our physical bodies.

Journey: Week two will explore how we journey by traveling through time and space.  Journey as the constant reality of life: how two moments are never the same and how our journeys are the means for transformation within the body and the spirit.

Drum: Week three will focus on the drive and opening of the drum.  We find the drum first as the beating of our hearts and second in the rhythm of our lives.  We find drum as a way to call us to hear the ancestral languages that our bones already know.  Drum brings us together in that circle that is never broken but sometimes forgotten.

Rise:  Week three will focus on the rise of our bodies, energies and spirits.  We will ascend from the ground, journey across the land, listen to the drumming in our bones and will rise anew in celebration of all that alive in each of us.
