Lower Division Summer

(Basic – Intermediate)

An Important Note from Ms. Stacey

CBT’s Summer Ballet is so important to our youngest students. This time to develop their imaginative and creative skills is literally invaluable. Our summer camps are more than just play. By participating, your child is learning lifetime skills that will benefit her dance training and turn her into the amazing dancers that CBT produces. Dancers/Performers that have the ability to connect with a story and a character are much more captivating to watch than those who simply perform steps. Our Summer Program for our Lower Division Dancers is developed to strengthen performing skills in our young students, in a fun and natural way that creates a true CBT performer.

Mini Summer Intensive

Including Ballet Classes, Musical Theatre Dance & Jr. Jazz 

Summer Intensives are so much fun, and our students progress so fast! We are looking forward to offering our youngest students Musical Theatre Dance and Jr. Jazz in addition to their summer ballet classes! We advance our students into the next level’s syllabus starting in the summer. Therefore, students who take “technique” during the summer do have an “upper edge” on those who are unable to participate. We hope everyone will continue to participate in a summer ballet class and continue to progress at the rate they have established over this year.

Princess Odette’s Magical Dance Camp 

A wonderful way for your child to study and understand the world of Classical Ballet. This year we will be studying the beautiful, classical ballet of Swan Lake. Studying this ballet is a must for all dancers and we are so excited that this year is our own production of “The Swan Princess.” We can’t wait for our students to learn this wonderful story of a young maiden, an evil villain and of course the handsome prince! At Dance Camp we learn all about the story and history of Swan Lake as well as who composed the music, the beautiful costume designs and so much more through games, crafts and a lot of fun! Dance Camp includes a 45 minute ballet class and 45 minutes of dance camp.

Just Dance!

Sometimes don’t you just want to dance – to spin, to leap, and jump and have your body just feel the rhythm? In Just Dance - we are going to do just that! We’ll work on our own choreography, have a glow-in-the-dark Dance Party and a demonstration for our parents at the end. We’ll also learn fun dances in Ballet, Jazz and Character – something you could even use for an upcoming talent show!

How to Take a Great Audition!

A wonderful class for our young students to prepare for the auditions that will now begin to come their way. Advancing at CBT is so much fun and being able to participate in the shows with the older students, being able to even dance lead parts is a big step and we want our dancers to feel as confident as possible when stepping into an audition. Don’t Miss This Workshop!
