ADULT/TEEN CLASSES

Proof of vaccination is required for all adult dancers taking in-person classes at this time

BALLET

Ballet teaches precision, grace, expression, and alignment while also increasing strength, flexibility, and body awareness. These valuable qualities learned throughout class create a strong foundation for all other styles of dance!

At CDS we offer Beginning (coming this fall), Beginning/Intermediate, and Intermediate ballet classes. Curious about which class is the right fit for you? Contact us!

Dress code:

Comfortable, form fitting clothing that is easy to dance in. Leotard and tights are suggested but not required. Warmups and layered dancewear (such as leg warmer, skirt, etc) can always be worn. Ballet shoes are required for safety. Please contact CDS if you would like to wear different footwear. 

Hair pulled back and secured away from neck and face.

POINTE

We offer both beginning and Intermediate pointe classes for Adult/Teens at CDS. All beginning pointe dancers must have permission to take class. Pointe may also be taken in ballet shoes- this is a fantastic way to build strength and endurance!
