CGPAC offers a variety of technical and performance based classes with a comprehensive performing arts education as our goal. While some studios compete, we offer winter and spring performances with equal opportunities for all classes. We believe that giving students a foundation of technical dance while developing performance skills helps make for wonderful, well-rounded performers and students. We have a set curriculum for technical classes and assess student skills every spring to ensure proper placement.
We have learned that families put their kids in dance for a variety of reasons and benefits:
socialization - physical fitness and learning to properly use and care for your body, muscles, and joints - sensory awareness and understanding non-verbal communication - self-confidence - learning the importance of following through on a task, asking for help, graciously receiving corrections - teamwork and collaboration - time management.
It's important to know that every body is a dancer's body. Dance is for any age, gender, color, and experience level.
At CGPAC, we have a program for you!
Deciding what classes your student should take can feel intimidating, but with guidance from our staff, you can rest assured that your student will find the best mix of classes for their goals. We are happy to have you with us at CGPAC!
