This Program Includes:

  • Online Dance Classes

  • Petite Dancechats

  • 1-on-2 Video Teacher/Student Meetings Every Month

  • DanceChats with Professionals

As we continue to adhere to the statewide recommendations for social distancing, Colorado Ballet Society will begin to offer online classes, education, and coaching to ensure that our dancers are able to engage and learn with us during this hiatus.    

Parents and dancers have made a significant investment in training, and we would like the opportunity to preserve and advance that investment.  It's important physically, mentally, and emotionally to keep up with one's skills, progress, and growing artistry. We are fully embracing our virtual opportunities to deepen our connections, and CBS teachers are here to connect in so many ways with our community of dancers.

A student registered in April at CBS will receive:

Online Classes

  • CBS On Pointe will use Google Classroom

  • Each level plus Tap, Hip hop, and Conditioning/PBT/Stretch will each have their own classrooms.

  • When opting in to CBS On Pointe, registered students and parents will receive a personal invitation to join. Please know that you and/or your student will need to have a g-mail account to join the class. For more information about creating a free g-mail account please visit: Create a Gmail Account or  Create a Google Account for Your Child

  • With the space restrictions in mind, our instructors have recorded themselves and/or student demonstrators in the various dance classes and levels. 

  • Classes will be posted in the corresponding levels of Google Classroom, and all dancers enrolled in the class will have access to the videos. 

  • A new class will be posted every week. In this way, your dancer can continue their regimen of training for as many weeks as we are required to be closed. Keep in mind you can retake any of the classes in Google Classroom as often as you like, as it's the amount of work you put into something that yields the best results. 

  • Our faculty will provide registered families with discussions of relevant content and additional dance activities such as instructional worksheets.

Petite DanceChats

  • Registered families will also receive videos, 2-3 minutes in length through Google Classroom, which focus on technique, corrections, and tips to support your dancer's training and help provide more focused artistic instruction for each and every registered dancer.

  • Our teachers are exploring the idea of doing dance storytime for our youngest dancers.

1-on-2 Video Teacher/Student Meetings Every Month for Level 2-Level 8

  • Dancers on Google Classroom will get TWO 1-on-2 video instructional meetings with their teacher each month for each dance form they are registered for. 

  • These will be 15-minutes in length and will happen through Zoom by appointment (with sign-up genius).

  • One 15-minute session is the equivalent of 1 hour of in-class instruction.

  • Your dancer will receive personalized instruction, advice, and homework exercises to improve their technique and artistry. This is the perfect way to ensure that each student keeps progressing week-to-week and returns stronger, despite the closure.

DanceChats with Professionals 

  • We are arranging for registered students to receive dancechats with professionals in the industry through Google Classroom, starting with alumni and former guest faculty.

  • Students will also have an opportunity to send questions to the guest speaker before the chats are recorded from around the world.

  • This is the perfect opportunity to obtain first-hand knowledge about the dance world and students will benefit from the insight and experience of these professionals.

How to Register for CBS On Pointe for April

Current Students

  • If you would like to opt in to our online education program, CBS On Pointe, please respond by paying your upcoming invoice. 

  • Your invoice will reflect a reduced tuition (by 35%), for the same number of classes you have been enrolled in. What does that look like? For example, if your regular tuition is $100, your April tuition will be $65. 

  • We will NOT automatically run April tuition if you have a card on file with us. You will need to notify us to run the card for April. 

  • If any family would like to make a contribution beyond their 65% tuition, it will be used for a family that cannot currently afford tuition. CBS will match any donations for tuition

  • By paying the discounted April tuition, you will help ensure that our faculty and staff are able to continue to work through this period and are able to prepare for the re-opening of the studio. We are eager for the day we can dance and learn with YOU in-person again.
