T H E  P R O G R A M

For over 50 years, the Contra Costa Ballet Centre’s program has served the development of students from their first encounters with music and movement to becoming accomplished professional dancers. Taught by an international faculty with extensive teaching and performing experience, students are imparted a wealth of unparalleled knowledge and expertise.

 

There are three separate divisions, which are carefully designed to introduce the correct technique and instruction appropriate for the age and physical development of the student. The three separate divisions are the Children's Division, the Student Division, and the Adult/Open Division. There are two sessions per year: an Academic Year (end of August to mid-June) and a Summer Program (four-week session in July).

 

Performing is an important aspect of a dancer’s training and experience at CCBC. All students in the Children's and Student Divisions perform in the annual Student Showcase which features choreographed demonstrations of each class level.

AN AMERICAN
SYLLABUS

The Contra Costa Ballet Centre syllabus is truly American, taking the best of the Russian and Italian schools. The directors of CCBC and its faculty have all studied the Ceccetti (Italian) and Vaganova (Russian) systems extensively, and, all coming from professional backgrounds, have danced in companies that have favored one technique over the other. For example, New York City Ballet has featured the works of their founder, Balanchine, who, being Russian, was very influenced by the Russian system yet created his own. Or American Ballet Theatre which is known for their very broad repertory featuring works by American, Danish, Italian and Russian choreographers. It is with this depth of knowledge and experience that the CCBC faculty is able to offer your student a truly American syllabus
