Two New Newsletters
In addition to our monthly newsletter of CSD activities, we are proud to introduce two additional newsletters: On Pointe, a dance history newsletter and Da Capo, a music history and theory newsletter.
These newsletters, which will appear regularly, will give parents and students alike additional information about dancers, choreographers, and different styles of dance, as well as introduce famous composers, eras of music, and musical terms.
Look for our new study unit bulletin board!
