BALLET BASICS

Classes are geared towards students with no to very limited previous ballet experience. However dancers of any level are welcome to attend to work on their ballet basics. This class is perfect for those wanting to build their fundamental vocabulary while exploring steps, positions, and concepts that form the foundation of more advanced technique. Advance registration is strongly suggested. Drop in with single class registration is allowed.

ADVANCED BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE BALLET 
Classes are geared towards students who have previous ballet experience and are comfortable with foundational ballet vocabulary. While all dancers are welcome to attend, this level may feel too fast paced for those with less than 2 years of previous experience. Advance registration is strongly suggested. Single class registration is allowed.

Schedule: Classes continue throughout the year, with some breaks for holidays and events. Please check back here for updates regarding closures. There will be no class on Saturday, May 18, 2024 due to the Annual Concert.

 


COVID Policies: Please follow CDC guidance for cases of known exposure and/or positive COVID cases. We ask that you do not attend class if you are feeling unwell or have tested positive for COVID. COVID policies are subject to change.


Dress Code: Dancers should wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in and that is form fitting enough for proper body alignment. ​Ballet shoes are recommended for ballet classes. 


 

Age Requirement: Classes are open to those ages 18 and up. Exceptions may be made for high school age students with permission from CBA.

COST
Single Class Rate: $16 

Northwestern Student Single Class Rate: $13 (must show valid student ID)

Adult Summer Intensive

CBA's annual Adult Intensive is a unique experience designed for the beginning/intermediate to intermediate dancer but is open to all who are interested. This week long opportunity culminates in an informal showing of work staged on or choreographed for participants.

 

The 2024 Adult Intensive will take place July 15 - 21. Registration is open now!

Adult Performance Ensemble

CBA's Adult Ensemble is designed to give adult dancers the opportunity to rehearse and perform outside of technique classes. No audition is necessary but dancers must commit to regular attendance at rehearsals. Repertoire may include excerpts from classical ballets as well as new works created specifically for this group.

 

The third season of our Adult Ensemble returns in the fall! Registration is open now.

Adult Winter Workshop

CBA's Adult Winter Workshop is designed for adult dancers with previous experience, and is a wonderful opportunity to go more in-depth into components of class and gain additional tools and information to take into the new year. Each day includes ballet class followed by an afternoon of classes focused on specific technique and artistry areas.

We look forward to kicking off 2025 with you.
