Class Session

7-WEEK CLASS SESSION

WHAT CLASSES TO TAKE

All formerly enrolled CCB dancers from the 2023-24 school year should remain in the same level for the summer session unless otherwise notified. Please email charmcityballet@gmail.com if you're unsure about class placement. To understand our class offerings more thoroughly, visit our CLASS DESCRIPTIONS.

CLASS PLACEMENT

Class placements are based on the level of individual dancers at the discretion of their teachers and in consultation with the directors, and age is not the primary factor in level placement. Auditions are not required to join our program, but we may ask a dancer to take a placement class to determine level. If you are new to CCB, please email charmcityballet@gmail.com for assistance in class placement.

DEDICATION AND COMMITMENT

Dancers are required to be on time, properly dressed (following our dress code), and ready to begin class at the start time. Please email us if you are going to be late or absent. If students are more than 10 minutes late, they may be asked, at the teacher’s discretion, to observe class for safety reasons.
