A five-week exceptional experience for extremely dedicated dancers, designed for current Pre-Professional Level 5-8 and Advanced dancers (ages 9-25). A true "Dance Company Experience" for five weeks this summer. This will be our second annual CBA Dance Company. I initially inspired by a reality dance TV show where two gentlemen had a month to put together a dance company and put on a full show. We will be doing a similar challenge at CBA this summer. Day one: Company auditions; dancers will be placed as an Apprentice, Trainee, Corps, Soloist, or Principal Dancer. All dancers will be placed and all decisions will be final. Dancers will then dance with their company level for the remainder of the five weeks. This will be a multi-form company, dancers will be expected to dance ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, contemporary, etc. and will be expected to work hard for various choreographers. Each day will be filled with company class, guest artists (including a special guest artist Deirdre Strand from Austin Texas), sewing classes, choreography workshops, and intensive choreography and will culminate on August 7th with a performance at the Scottish Rite Theater. All interested dancers must pre-register and be able to attend all five weeks of this exclusive experience (missing one or two days is allowed. Please do not plan to attend if you are planning to miss more than 5 days). Class sizes will be extremely limited. Please email office@classicalballet.net to reserve your dancer's space.
