Student Division

The academy’s Student Division offers a program designed to take students from their first introduction to the art through a full course of ballet study. The Student Division follows a structured sequence of training stages designed to increase the student’s technical skills, stamina, and discipline.

Recommended Curriculum Attendance

CAD understands that not all students are able to meet our recommended curriculum attendance. Students are welcome to register for the number of classes they can feasibly commit to for their assigned level.

All students must take at least one ballet class as a requirement for Jazz, Modern or Contemporary. 

For their safety, students must attend ballet technique immediately prior to participating in pointe class or pas de deux.
