VIRTUAL SUMMER DANCE PROGRAM
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the safety of our students, all of our summer programs will be held online. We will not be holding in-studio classes, camps, or intensives, but everything will still be offered virtually! Full length classes and abbreviated camps/intensives will be offered.
We know that studying dance in person is the most ideal situation, but when faced with challenges such as safe social distancing, virtual learning can be a strong alternative to not learning at all. CCB's Virtual Summer Dance Program will give you or your child the opportunity to dance and grow with our enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructors, from the comfort of your own home. With the help of these online programs, you or your child will continue to learn and develop the fundamental building blocks of dance, and keep your skills sharp until we can all be back in the studio together again. Fresh lesson plans and carefully crafted themes will make learning fun for you or your child, while keeping familiarity and routine in your schedule.
Charm City Ballet’s summer dance programs offer a full range of instruction taught by CCB’s excellent faculty as well as distinguished guest artists. Our programs are designed to accommodate all students ages 3 through adult who wish to continue (or begin) their dance training during the summer months. We offer 1-week camps for children and teens, a week-long ballet intensive for the more advanced and professional-level dancer, and a full schedule of classes in an ongoing 7-week session. Detailed information is listed below! Please email with any questions regarding placements.
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS OPEN!
**If you are a former CCB student who is not currently enrolled in the spring 2020 session, please email before registering for the summer session so that we can re-activate your Jackrabbit account.
