"Ballet Goes to College--Three top programs to consider"--Dance Magazine

"CCM Dance is one of the few collegiate ballet programs in the country to facilitate such internships. Its combination of academics and professional training--including excellent live accompaniment for dance classes--is so exceptional, in fact, that in April 2014, Dance Magazine cited the dance department at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music as one of just a few programs in the country that “offer the specialization and experience you’d receive as a company trainee.”--Janet Light

CCM Dance Graduates have performed with companies such as the Ballet Du Capitole of France, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Martha Graham Dance Company, Louisville Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Ballet West, BalletMet, Dayton Ballet, Nashville Ballet, Sarasota Ballet, Alabama Ballet, Eugene Ballet Company, Nevada Ballet, Smuin Ballet, Ballet Pensacola, Columbus Dance Theater, The Ballet Theater of Maryland, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo and many other classic and contemporary dance companies.
