How does my dancer become part of the CDA Company?
We hold auditions for our Company in the Spring. However, under special circumstances, we welcome dancers to privately audition one on one during the year.
What exactly is the Technique Intensive (TI) Program?
Our Technique Intensive Program is for the serious dancer who is looking for diverse training. They take classes in Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap, Conditioning and Stretch. They are typically here 3-4 days per week. This program is available by invitation only. We are able to set up a trial class for this program if you are interested. That way, Miss Megan can evaluate your dancer and see if this program would be a good fit for them.
What style of Ballet do you teach?
Our teachers mostly focus on Cecchetti and RAD techniques, although, several of our ballet instructors also have experience in Vaganova technique.
Do you offer Private Lessons?
Yes! You can work with any of our instructors in your dancer's preferred style for $30 per half hour lesson. We usually schedule private lessons right after school, before our regular classes begin or on Friday evenings.
What makes your studio different from others in the area?
We have a very different atmosphere than most studios in the valley. Miss Megan, the owner of our studio, is from the midwest. Therefore, we are a very ballet based studio, where as most studios in the area are jazz or contemporary based. We are also a DRAMA FREE studio and have a zero tolerance policy for it. We pride ourselves in creating a kind, healthy atmosphere that helps foster growth within our dancers.
