You and your toddler will build connections while bopping, wiggling and dancing in a safe and fun environment.
Through games, play, and imagination exercises, your little dancer will learn to skip, march and gallop along with the basics of ballet, rhythm, and counting.
Your student will develop musical awareness, rhythm, and coordination through the fundamentals of ballet, creative movement, acting, and games. As Students advanced through the Primary Divisions, they will continue to build on their knowledge of ballet’s fundamentals and learn more complex movements at the barre and across the floor.
Emphasis is on the enjoyment of dance within the framework and regimen of classical ballet training.
A program unique to CCD, Accelerate! is specifically designed to help pre-teens and teens jump into dance through an accelerated learning process. Before they know it, they are prepared to integrate into our Intermediate Division.
Students in this program often plan to go on to college programs or professional careers in dance. Classes are challenging and highly motivating, and students have high expectations for themselves and the quality of their work. They are pushed to move beyond their comfort zone and make personal discoveries in their artistry and technique.
Students in the Advanced Division transition to our more advanced syllabus, taking on more complex combinations, multiple turns, and big jumps, while refining their movements and building stamina. Pre-Pointe & Pointe begin in this Division.
