Advanced Program

Program Descriptions

Cecchetti Graded Classes:

These classes are separate from regular ballet classes. They consist of set work from the CCA. Students taking these classes should expect to be examined.

Jazz:

This is dance set to popular or jazz music and requires ballet technique for control of the body. It develops agility, strength in turns and leaps and a sense of modern rhythms. Jazz releases the dancer to express, through movement, in a more unconventional way than ballet.

Tap:

Tap is set to many different types of music: musical comedy, jazz, popular, etc. Tap develops a sense of rhythm in the dancer.

Lyrical:

This type of dance is based on a strong ballet technique. It incorporates the freedom, fluidity and expressiveness of jazz and/or contemporary and modern dance. Lyrical dance is expressive, simultaneously subtle and dynamic, focused on conveying musicality and emotion through movement.

Students at this level should be somewhat accomplished and serious about dance.


These classes meet 1 - 5 hours per week.


Teachers will determine the appropriate level for each student.


All students must take a ballet class. They also have the option of the appropriate tap, jazz, lyrical and Cecchetti grade classes.
