CMDC offers dance classes for children starting at age 3.  Students can choose from Creative Movement (ages 3 - 6), Beginning Ballet ages (6 - 9), Tap, Acrobatics, Hip Hop and African dance.  Classes are held on Saturday mornings from September through June. 

Open Dance Class - Age 10 & up

The Open Dance program allows students ages 10 and up the opportunity to study dance at their own pace. Open Dance students can choose their own schedule, and try different styles of dance.  CMDC offers classes in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, African, Latin, Contemporary and Modern

Bryant Youth Professional Training Program (YPP)

The YPP training program offers dance classes for students who wish to train at a pre-professional level.  YPP students are placed in classes based on ability, not age.  Students are required to take a minimum of 2 ballet classes per week, plus 2 - 3 electives from the  multidisciplinary  dance  offerings. 

CMDC’s Program is now open for registration! 

We are excited to announce the changes that we have made.

Here are some of the exciting changes that you will find:

  • You will continue to see a focus on Classical Ballet training  (in Early Childhood through the Bryant Youth Professional options)

  • There are options for additional genres of dance (including Tap, Hip Hop, Tumbling (Acro), and African) in the Early Childhood and Open Dance programs on Saturday mornings.

  • We are launching a new Company Program for our Youth Professional Training Program dancers!

    • Junior Company (Division 2)

    • Senior Company (Division 3 & 4)

    • Company Class will be held Saturdays 2:30 pm - 6:30 pm

    • Each week the new company classes will offer a combination of training in various genres (Latin, Contemporary, Modern, and Hip Hop) and workshops to develop performance skills and stage presence.

    • Company classes will also include workshops covering other important topics to help the CMDC Youth Professional dancers be prepared for artistic opportunities after their training at CMDC; examples of specialty topics will include: how to build your dance resume, tips on building your social media presence, auditioning skills, choreography workshops and more!

    • Company dancers will have the opportunity to participate in community engagement performances, as they arise.

    • Company class dancers must be enrolled in the full ballet program
