The CCBC Dance Program offers a rigorous program of dance technique, creative courses, performance opportunities and strong dance academics.
The mission of the Dance Program is to inspire students to participate in all aspects of dance as an art form and to foster the artistic, intellectual and spiritual growth of dancers by instilling in them a commitment to artistic and personal excellence. We provide students with opportunities to experience and learn about a broad spectrum of dance including: classical ballet, modern dance, improvisation, choreography, jazz, tap, hip hop and global dance forms. Students will learn and develop the physical, artistic and technical skills necessary to communicate through dance and to articulate their knowledge of dance.
The dance program is housed in two studios in the Wellness Building on the Essex campus. Both studios have recently installed American Harlequin sprung flooring and marley surface, internet access with smart carts and video projectors, multi input-sound systems and ballet barres.
All Dance Majors or prospective Dance Majors are required to meet with the Dance Coordinator prior to the beginning of a new semester. All Dance Majors are advised by the full time dance faculty.
