CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement offers ballet, musical theatre dance and tap classes for students of all ages. For the beginner and arts enthusiast, the dance division offers a welcoming environment where students may explore their artistic interests or begin seeking a professional career in dance. Each dance class develops and advances students' technique and proficiency, while fostering confidence and creativity. All classes are taught under the guidance of professional instructors and artists who are dedicated to promoting their students' learning and artistic development in the art of dance.
Young students are introduced to movement and dance in a nurturing way that encourages and challenges without intimidation. As students progress, so do expectations as well as opportunities for training and performing. Adults also have the opportunity to take dance classes for the first time or as one who has studied dance with passion their entire life.
All students have the opportunity to participate in a final recital or showcase at the end of the academic year. Other performance opportunities occur during the year for dance students, either on campus or in the community. CCM Preparatory offers performing opportunities for several different ballet groups both at CCM and major arts venues in Greater Cincinnati.
The dance faculty consists of professional artists and teachers who have had professional careers in dance and may also hold university degrees in dance. Some of our talented teachers are active performers in the area. Many dance faculty have been at CCM for over 20 years.
