Dance Academy students train in the fundamentals of ballet and explore creativity through modern dance. This class emphasizes contemporary techniques to develop coordination, musicality, strength, flexibility, and alignment. Students learn basic ballet and modern dance techniques, floor work, center work and movement across the floor. Instruction in creative improvisation, performance development, choreography, and composition skills will culminate with a final performance.
Once students are grouped by skill level during placement auditions, they will be sent a specific weekly schedule based on their level. Rehearsals take place on select weeknights and Saturdays. Classes for younger students are offered at both Metro and Eastern Campus locations. We will provide further details upon registration. Please email us with further questions at CreativeArtsAcademy@Tri-c.edu.
During this difficult time of economic transition, we will keep programs free for our students and their families, but if you are willing and able to support us in this effort, please donate here. Tri-C Creative Arts Academy Donate: Cleveland Ohio
