As we come to the end of another CCDA year, which has been a very busy time preparing for the annual show, and with the advent of CCDA Dance Basement, the new home of CCDA. I have started to reflect on the past years and the growth in opportunities that CCDA offers.
The new timetable has less change than usual, but has some exciting opportunities in the upper school I have introduced a progressing technique class, aimed at those more serious students, who want even more from their dancing.
I have also set into motion ‘The CCDA Sunday Workshop Scheme’ every week from September there will be the opportunity to take part in a workshop on Sunday afternoons. The full timetable will be available in mid-August but will include a different workshop each week on subjects such as singing technique, musical theatre, tap, drama, performance technique, audition preparation, confidence building, classical ballet, progressing technique and many others. These will be run by guest lecturers all of which will be former or current working professionals.
For the lower school, more first level classes including “CCDA Tots and Company” classes from 18 months. Adult provision will have ballet as well as tap and jazz classes, and personal training available.
For the next term the examination system will be the same, with parents expressing interest and assessments taking place to determine the pupil’s readiness. From January 2016, this will change, details will be available in the autumn newsletter.
Competition & Performance groups will continue as set until January 2016, with the exception of Senior Tap Group, which will fold. All groups will be reviewed this term and further information will follow early in the autumn term.
Excitingly this year is the 18th show for CCDA , which means that plans for the 20th anniversary show and celebration a ball will be put into action, it’s going to be a big affair that no one will want to miss.
If you haven’t yet booked for the summer opportunities the Musical theatre Boot camp is now full, but there are some places available on the summer workshop week, 3-7 August.
Please keep sharing both the show posts and the CCDA Cirencester creative Dance Academy Facebook community page, we currently stand at 712 Likes.
Hope to see you at Summer School, if not we look forward to the start of the new term on the 14th September.
