VIRTUAL SUMMER DANCE PROGRAM

COVID-19 UPDATE

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.

 

While we know that studying dance in person and in the studio is most ideal, we believe that each new challenge is an opportunity to learn and grow in new and exciting ways. CCB’s Virtual Summer Dance Program offers the chance to continue to develop your mind and body from the safety of your own home. With our enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff, you or your child can continue to learn and advance in the fundamentals of dance, keep your bodies active, and maintain 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 more advanced and professional-level dancers, and a full schedule of classes in an ongoing 7-week session. Detailed information is listed below! Please email charmcityballet@gmail.com with any questions regarding placements.

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

**If you are a former CCB student who is/was not enrolled in the spring 2020 session, please email charmcityballet@gmail.com before registering for the summer session so that we can re-activate your Jackrabbit account.

TUITION INFO

 

​Tuition is payable either in full or in two equal installments. For camps/intensives, the first installment or full payment is due at registration (which will be charged automatically to your credit card on file with the amount dependent on whether you chose “pay in full” or “split payment”), and the second installment will be due on the first day of the camp or intensive. For classes, the first installment or full payment is due by the first day of the summer session, June 22nd, 2020, and the second installment is due by July 13th, 2020. For session classes, you will receive an email from us when your fees have been posted to your account, and then you can make your payment online via our customer Portal.

Tuition is non-refundable. For dancers who withdraw with less than 1 week notice prior to the start of a camp/intensive, the 1st installment amount (half of the total due) is non-refundable.

POLICIES

 

Late registrations for session classes are accepted, and tuition will be pro-rated.

 

Classes or camps/intensives not meeting minimum enrollment may be combined or cancelled. A full refund will be given if a camp or class is cancelled.

 

There are no credits or refunds for missed camp/intensive days. We do not offer make-up classes for summer camps/intensives. Dancers who are enrolled in session classes may make up 2 classes (in another level-appropriate class) in the summer session, but make-up classes cannot be carried into the 2020-21 school year.

 

A $15 Late Fee will be assessed for payments made after the due dates. A $25 charge is placed on all declined credit cards and on all returned checks. No exceptions.

VIRTUAL DANCE INFO

 

WHAT YOU WILL REQUIRE FOR VIRTUAL DANCING

Connection - good quality internet and an electronic device (phone, tablet, computer).

Space - the more space the better, but our lessons will be condensed to ensure those with even the smallest space can participate.

Positivity - ready to try something new and unconventional.

GETTING STARTED WITH ZOOM

Zoom is a free app/online download. If you'd like to use your phone or tablet you can download the app through your Google Playstore or Apple App Store. If you are using your computer, you can download here: https://zoom.us/signup. You will need to have this app in order to participate in the class. This allows everyone to see each other and the teacher to answer any questions and give corrections and feedback.

HOW TO JOIN THE CLASS

Simply click on the link to the class that has been emailed to you and then enter the password. When prompted, please enter the name of the student when joining a class. The link will log you right in to the class (or waiting room if you're a few minutes early). Then, just wait for your teacher to let you in!

WHAT TO WEAR

While it is not required, we recommend that dancers wear the same attire they would in the dance studio. If you'd prefer to wear athletic clothing for ballet, we request that you wear something form fitting so that we can easily give corrections. Please avoid super short shorts (because we can see you at home) and baggy pants (because we can’t offer any corrections without seeing your legs). Typical dance shoes are best, though tappers are welcome to wear sneakers instead of tap shoes.

OTHER NOTES

All classes have been modified to accommodate a smaller space than the traditional dance studio, so you should be able to take class in your bedroom (great excuse to clean your room!), basement, family room, or kitchen. Most teachers will also be teaching in their homes as well.

We know that space is limited at home, but please be aware that the more of your body that your teacher can see, the easier it is to give personal corrections. We cannot give many corrections if we can only see your head and chest. Do your best to get as much of your body in the screen shot as possible, and parents, please help your children find the best spot for their device before leaving the room for them to take class.

Though we have been teaching via Zoom for months now, this form of class delivery is still new to us and subject to technology working properly. In the case of any technical difficulties, please be patient. We will not be interrupting our classes to assist anyone who is having trouble joining. If this happens, please contact us via email and we will try to help and correct the issue for future classes.
