Monday Class Makeups - Dec. 10, 2018

All Monday classes will meet on December 10, 2018 to make up for the missed class on Columbus Day! This is very important since, without this extra class, there would be four (4) Mondays off between our Holiday Break starting December 10 and the first Monday in January which is not until the 7th!

Because of the unpredictability of the winter storms, plus 2 more missed Mondays for MLK, Jr Day and February Break, it is imperative not to have 4 weeks off with both Cecchetti and Tap exams happening in late March and early April!

We appreciate your making every effort to have your child attend their class(es) on Monday, December 10!

Summer 2018 Classes

We will have four weeks of intensive classes for our summer series. Classes start on June 25th and run through July 20th.

A.P. Cecchetti Exam Summer Intensive is an “Accelerated Preparation” course for Cecchetti dancers planning for their next level of exam. The emphasis will be on progressing technically, building strength and flexibility, increasing coordination and speed of learning. Daily ballet technique classes focusing on the Cecchetti Syllabi, as well as pre-pointe, pointe, dance improvisation and variations, and, most of all, having fun together, make for a varied and stimulating dance day.

Students wishing to take an exam must attend the full course. Students eligible for Pointe, must attend the full course.

Coaching classes will be offered to those candidates unable to attend all 4 weeks, or in need of private instruction, arranged with the Director, for an additional fee.

Students not taking an exam may register for any or all of the four weeks; however, they will enjoy and learn more by taking at least two weeks consecutively, if possible. Students new to Cheshire Dance Centre are urged to start the session at the beginning.
