Children’s StoryTime Ballet

Creativity and growth for 3 & 4 year olds

In this delightful summer adaptation of our Children’s Ballet program, young students will explore the elements of a beloved story through movement.
In the first 45 minutes of class, the dancers will experience a ballet class of the highest quality – learning correct ballet terminology and technique specifically designed to target young, curious minds. Utilizing imagery and creative exploration, these young dancers will learn about musicality, space/time/energy, and performative qualities.
In the last 15 minutes, teachers will break down the elements of a story. They will learn about the characters, the setting, the plot, the conflict, and the resolution. From this exploration, the class will create a dance which will be performed for family and friends at the conclusion of the 6-week session.

StoryTime Ballet is a 6 week program and runs June 15 – July 25, 2020. All summer 2020 classes will be held either in-person at CCD or virtually through Zoom.

Space is limited to 9 students taking class at CCD – enroll today!

“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.

Fairytale Ballet Camps

Creativity and growth for 5 – 8 year olds.

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

Whether they are new to dance or have danced for several years, this summer program is perfect for boys and girls ages 5-8.

The day will begin with a ballet class suited to your dancer’s skill level:

  • In Primary 1 & 2, your student will develop musical awareness, rhythm, and coordination through the fundamentals of ballet, creative movement, acting, and games.
  • In Primary 3, students will continue to build on their knowledge of ballet’s fundamentals and learn more complex movements at the barre and across the floor.

The second class of the day will be either Musical Theater or Character Dance:

  • In Musical Theater, the dancers will learn the basics of singing and acting, while syncing those new skills with complex dance steps. They will learn a routine to an excerpt from a kid-friendly, family-favorite Broadway musical.
  • 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.

The final class of the day is our famous Fairytale Ballet Class. Students will take a deep dive on a famous classical fairytale ballet, studying the origins of the story, the history, about the choreographer and composer, and about how it came to the stage. They will watch an internationally-acclaimed version of the ballet, studying the dancers, costumes, and stagecraft. The teacher will then work with the students to bring a modified version of the ballet to life, culminating with an in-studio performance for families and friends on the final day of the program.

Each camp day will include 15 minutes for a snack break. Please bring a healthy labeled snack with your child each day.

Fairytale Ballet Camp will run June 29 – July 25, 2020. Classes will either be held at CCD or via Zoom.
