PROGRAM

The Contra Costa Ballet Centre’s Summer Program offers in-studio* instruction for Levels 1 through Advanced dancers, by a highly-developed faculty with years of experience both as dance educators and performers. Our directors and faculty have collectively worked with the most prestigious ballet institutions in the U.S., including American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet. Students follow a Russian-based, yet truly American syllabus. The curriculum consists of ballet technique, pointe, character, variations, modern, physical conditioning, and electives such as boys’ class, repertoire, Flamenco, anatomy, and Pilates mat class.
