Our academic school year begins Tuesday, September 8th and runs through Saturday, May 14th.
Congratulations Caroline Hamilton!
Caroline Hamilton, after being accepted into The Rock’s Summer Intensive, has been accepted into their year-round program. The Rock, in Philadelphia, is known for having trained Michaela DePrince. Caroline trained at the Claire School of Dance for ten years, beginning when she was just four years old. We are very proud of her hard work and accomplishments!
Ms. Claire – PBT Certification
Ms. Claire took the Progressing Ballet Technique teacher training over the summer and is now a certified instructor. CSD is excited to incorporate PBT, a program of strengthening exercises, into all Level ballet classes. CSD will also incorporate PBT into the adult Pilates classes and the new Monday night adult ballet class.
New CSD Videos
Summer programs at CSD saw the creation of two new videos. Students in our July Intensive collaborated on a new CSD video production, Minion Socks, which can be seen here:
Meanwhile, Mr. Lulu, our hip hop instructor, captured the energy of Hip Hop Camp in his video Hip Hop Camp 2015. Watch the fun here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NB6WUvooGvc.
Three new adult classes this fall! In addition to our Saturday intermediate adult ballet (now 12:15 to 1:45) we have added a Monday 7:30-8:45 ballet class which features a floor barre for extra strength and placement. Also on Mondays is our new adult beginner modern class, 6:30-7:30. This class plays with both gravity and rhythm and is accessible to everyone.
Body Awareness, Thursday mornings 8:15-9:00, borrows from Feldenkrais and tai chi to release tension and promote both ease of movement and peace of mind.
Pilates classes, which strengthen back and ab muscles, remain on Thursday evenings 7:30-8:30 pm.
Our Sunday intermediate/ advanced ballet class remain noon to 1:30 at Grace United.
All adult classes are pay as you go. Come join us!
