DANCE The CCM Preparatory Dance program includes popular dance such as hip-hop and musical theatre dance along with a multi-level classical ballet program.
For 3-4 year olds 9 and 10 a.m., Saturdays Designed by our faculty especially for our youngest students, stARTS! offers three 8-week series that introduce children to music, dance and theatre through child-friendly experiences. The sessions are designed to increase children’s comfort level in the performing arts, become acquainted with the CCM village, and allow children to experience all the performing arts before entering any of our curriculum-driven programs. Each of the sessions has a different theme, so children can take all three sessions without repeating, and there is a discount for enrolling in all three. NOTE: This is the only option we offer for children younger than 4 years old. Young fours may be asked to take this class prior to entering one of the curriculum classes. Our staff will be happy to discuss this with you. Dates: Fall — Sept. 27-Nov.15, Winter — Jan. 10March 14, 2015; Spring — March 21-May 16 Cost: $125 per eight-week session (no registration fee required). If taking all three sessions, the total cost is $350.

Musical theater dance introduces students to the steps, techniques and styles of dance commonly used in musical theater. Classes consist of a jazz or ballet warm-up, floor stretches, isolations and
center combinations incorporating jazz, tap, ballet, folk, social, and lyrical dance steps. Classes focus on developing the “dancing actor” by working on characterization through movement and choreography. Students in beginning MTD do not need to audition.

Any time the University of Cincinnati closes, the Preparatory Department will not hold classes. Cancellations will be noted on local radio and television stations, on the main UC Web site, and on the CCM Preparatory website as soon as possible. When closings are confirmed, we inform students and families by voice mail, our website, and local broadcast media. If necessary, we have set aside two Saturdays for Saturday group class make-up days. If there are a series of weather-
related closings, we will implement the following schedule for lessons: – One lesson missed because of UC canceling: there will be no makeup lesson – Two lessons missed because of UC canceling: one makeup by faculty member – Three lessons missed because of UC canceling; one credit lesson for student – Four lessons missed will be the same as one and repeat
Each private-lesson student is allowed one absence per 15 weeks. The calendar has extra weeks and allows flexibility on the instructor and student’s part to reschedule when necessary and agreed upon. A 24-hour notice must be given for any cancellation. Our faculty may occasionally need to reschedule a lesson. If a teacher must cancel a lesson, that lesson will be made up. We expect music students to take all 30 lessons each year.
