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.

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.

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.

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.

Registration is open now!


Adult Summer Intensive

CBA's Adult Intensive is a unique experience designed for the beginning/intermediate to intermediate dancer. Open to ages 18 and up, this week long opportunity culminates in an informal showing of work staged on or choreographed for participants.


Save the date! The next Adult Intensive will take place July 15-21, 2024.
