At Charleston Dance Center, our focus is educating a well-rounded dancer. For some students, that means a heavier focus on technique; for some students that means learning dance while conquering stage fright.

For the 2017-18 season, we have identified classes that will learn choreography and perform in the Year End Performance and other classes that will focus strictly on technique all the way through June without stopping to learn choreography.

See our class schedule.

“We are always looking for ways to make Charleston Dance Center better for our students and making this clear distinction in the classes at the beginning of the year is one way we’re doing that,” CDC faculty explain. “There are many reasons that students don’t want to perform in the Year End Performance – maybe they’re already performing several dances or they aren’t available on the performance dates or maybe they’re just taking classes to maintain their technique and flexibility.”

Students who want to learn choreography and perform in the Year End Performance should select one of these classes:

Preschool
Pre Ballet
Jazz/Tap
Ballet I (Monday 5:15-6:15)
Ballet II (Monday 4:15-5:15)
Hip Hop I-IV
Contemporary I-IV

Students who want to focus on technique and NOT perform in the Year End Performance should select one of these classes:

Jazz Technique I-IV
Tumbling I-IV
Conditioning I-IV
Ballet IV (Tuesday 5:15-6:45)
Ballet III (Tuesday 6:45-8:15)
Ballet III (Wednesday 5:15-6:45)
Ballet II (Wednesday 6:45-7:45)
Ballet IV (Wednesday 7:45-9:15)
Ballet I (Wednesday 4:15-5:15)

Non-performing classes are great for students and our faculty – it offers an opportunity to teach students all the way through the spring. Come try a class with us!
