Please view our Summer Camp page for details for those younger dancers.
CCD offers Summer Camps for those in Primary 1 through Intermediate 4. We have several new options this year for our summer camps! You may sign up for Summer Camps through your Student/Parent Portal. All students will remain in their current Division through the summer of 2019. CCD summer camps runs through June 17 – July 27, 2019.
Please view our Summer Intensive page for details for Advanced Dancers ages 12-22.
This advanced program is for dancers who want a challenging summer experience that will accelerate their ballet and contemporary dance training in an intimate, individualized setting. The Advanced Summer Intensive runs June 17 – July 27, 2019 with four divisions serving intermediate and advanced dancers ages 12-22. Students will train up to 8 hours per day Monday-Friday with rigorous and invigorating classes designed to diversify their capacity for movement. An optional 2-hour ballet technique class is also available on Saturdays.
Returning this year! Compass Coaching Project!
Set in a nurturing and inspiring environment, Compass Coaching Project offers tools to assist aspiring and working professionals as they navigate toward their goals in today’s dance climate.
Navigating your way through the US model of second companies, studio companies, open-ended apprenticeships and trainees, can be tricky. This workshop is designed to invest in the individual’s particular needs, which are often neglected as dancers spend one or more years floating between “student” and “professional”. This program is also meant to benefit professionals who feel they have plateaued, who are looking for a change, or who need inspiration.
New this year: Movement Lab!
CCD’s Movement Lab offers training and movement exploration with teachers and stagers of the most influential dance makers of our day such as Ohad Naharin, William Forsythe, Jiří Kylián and Crystal Pite, lead by dance luminary Dominic Walsh (hyperlink). Dancers age 16+ will experiment with new ways of moving and be challenged to think about dance and movement in a new way, delving into ballet and contemporary techniques on a very deep level and using these techniques to develop their own voice. Culminating performance July 27, 2019.
