CBA  Junior Intensive

Denver: July 11-22

9am-1:00 pm

CBA’s new Junior Summer Intensive Program is a 2-week half-day program to give students age 6-9 at the beginning level the time and attention they need to develop their skills at an enhanced pace, without overwhelming them. No audition is necessary to enroll in this program. Pre-Pointe Students will be assessed for readiness to begin pointe work at the beginning of the Program. With emphasis on technique and safety, students who are ready will be guided through the basic skills of dancing on pointe.
