Welcome back to dance! We look forward to a great year ahead with all of our students and we, especially, welcome those who are new to CBA. We ask all CBA families to remain considerate of others at the studio by following Fairfax County protocols regarding COVID. Notify the front desk of any exposures or infections. Students who are not vaccinated should continue to mask in classes and/or rehearsals. We thank you for understanding.
We hope that all of you enjoyed your summer vacation! The following BAE dancers finished the CBA Summer Intensive Program with an exciting trip to NY City: Nooshon Farhadi, Caelan Hagopian, Ana Levi, Isabella Mansapit, Caitlin Murray and Lourdes Price. The dancers took classes at the famed Steps on Broadway Studio, attending classes taught by former members of world renowned ballet companies; as well as, top Broadway choreographers! Another highlight of the trip was seeing “Moulin Rouge” at the Hirschfeld Theatre. We thank Casey Hagopian and Caitlin Murray for chaperoning and we are extremely proud of our dancers!
