Testimonials
I just wanted to send a note of thank you to all of the staff members that made my daughter’s first summer camp experience amazing. Because of the online option she was able to participate in the entire 4 weeks. Normally with our work schedules it isn’t possible for us to get her to camp in the summer. I’m so thankful that the online option was added, even in the midst of the crazy changes we’re dealing with every day. She loved every minute of it. It’s obvious that you all care so much for these kids and that you worked your butts off to make this experience not only productive but memorable in so many way. Please share my thanks with all of the teachers that supported her every day and to all of the behind the scenes staffers that made it work so well.
 
I have been extremely impressed with how well CCD has adapted to the constant changes required to stay successful during this unprecedented time. No other organization that I’ve been part of has worked so hard to keep so many people engaged. I really appreciate it – as a parent and as an adult dancer. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed! You’re a big part of how I keep my sanity as well as I get to enjoy so many adult classes myself.

“Charlie has grown leaps and bounds since he started dancing at CCD. He’s built friendships, learned respect and discipline from his teachers, and, of course, he’s grown as a dancer. He regularly talks about how much fun it is to be at CCD and how the teachers make learning dance fun. When I just asked him what the best thing about being at CCD is, he said: “Dancing with my friends and being with the best teachers ever!”

– Karen M.

For current CCD students: Student’s summer level is the same as their current school year.

Intermediate 1 Summer Camp Classes:

Ballet Technique: Students in Intermediate 1 will build their skills through an emphasis on proper alignment and awareness of the placement of the head and arms, along with more complex movements of the feet and legs. Students will also learn ballet terminology and basic anatomy.

Ballet Technique Intensive: This specialized class allows the teacher to focus on coaching the dancers through the minute details of the one specific area of their technique. Based on the prior class, the faculty member may, for instance, decide to focus on the articulation of the feet, the operation of the shoulders, movement of the head, spotting, or perhaps landing properly from a jump. Our summer dancers improve enormously through this details process!

In addition to Ballet and Ballet Technique Intensive, classes may include Character, Hip Hop, Ballroom and Musical Theater.

Character Dance: In Character Dance, students will learn the basics of balletic folk dancing (plus a little bit of history of both character dance and ballet). WARNING: This class is so fun they’ll be twirling, toe-heel-cross-heeling, and stamping through the house for the next several months.

Hip Hop: This high energy class focuses on the introduction of fundamental elements of Hip Hop, which encompass many styles of street dancing including breaking, locking and popping. This class will also focus on developing rhythm and coordination

Ballroom: This fun-filled class will introduce several styles of ballroom dance including the Foxtrot, Waltz, Cha-cha, and Charleston, with a focus on footwork, coordination and rhythm.

Musical Theater: In this class, dancers will be introduced to the songs of Broadway musicals and choreography. Combining basic skills of singing and acting with complex dance steps, dancers will learn an excerpt from a kid-friendly, family-favorite Broadway musical.

Jazz Technique: Our jazz technique syllabus aims to guide our dancers from the historic vernacular roots through the performative styles of Fosee and Luigi to current forms underpinning much of popular dance. Jazz holds strong focus on performativity, personality, musicality, rhythm, and power. We encourage our dancers to become generalists in Jazz technique with a historic understanding of the past and future of the art form.

Each camp day will include a 15-minute snack break. Please send a nutritious snack with your dancer (and please make sure it’s well labeled).

**Because each of our summer camps/intensives includes ballet technique classes as part of the daily schedule, most of these classes can be fulfilled with perfect attendance! Missed a class? No problem. Contact the front desk to schedule your make-up class and/or the extra classes you need to fulfill your requirements.
