On Tuesday, March 1st, CBA will align with FCPS guidelines for masking in our studio classrooms. We continue to highly encourage that unvaccinated and/or immunocompromised students continue to wear masks at all times. Parents of fully vaccinated students may decide for themselves whether their dancer will remain masked in classes/rehearsals. CBA Faculty members will continue to mask at all times. We also continue to require masks for everyone in the lobby areas of CBA.
Rehearsals are underway for Concert 2022, featuring Coppelia. We look forward to presenting CBA dancers onstage at The Hylton Performing Arts Center on June 15th and 16th. Dress Rehearsals will be held at the theatre on Monday and Tuesday, June 13th and 14th. Tickets will be available online, by phone or at the box office.
Costume balances for Concert 2022 will be sent out by invoice. Most costumes are expected to arrive in April and will be sent home once the balance has been paid. Please be reminded that March tuition is now due. A late fee will be added after the 10th of the month.
CBA will offer a fully Intensive Summer Program for five weeks - July 5th through August 6th. We are excited to announce that former Bowen-McCauley dancer, Patrick Green will teach Adv./Int. Ballet classes this summer on Fridays and to assist with Pas de Deux Class. Ballet Master, Dustin Kimball will choreograph a new ballet for the BAE during Repertoire classes. Plans are also in order for a BAE trip to NYC, at the conclusion of the Summer Session. We encourage all BAE members and prospects to attend all five weeks in order to engage in these opportunities!
Children’s Morning Dance Camps are available for children ages 3 through 10. Camps are 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours long, depending on the age level. It is suggested that Ballet IIC students prepare for beginning Pre-Pointe in the fall, by attending Summer Intensive Camp E. Pointe students should continue training in the summer by attending Summer Intensive Camps B, C, D. Feel free to contact the front desk regarding Summer Camp placements for you CBA dancer. A Sign-up Genius will become available for registration beginning after Spring Break.
