Callanwolde offers classes in dance for children ages 2 and up. We begin with Parent & Me classes and Creative Movement / Pre-Ballet. Students can continue through to advanced levels in Ballet, Modern, and Jazz.
The aim of this program is to instill in each student the joy of dance as an art form. The program includes technical skills, improvisation, choreography, musical background, and performing experience within a graded structure. Children are allowed a high degree of personal freedom for their own invention and creativity. This educational approach to dance utilizes problem solving, observation, and sharing of experience, through which students acquire cooperation and teamwork skills, commitment, and responsibility.
Callanwolde promotes education that is age-appropriate and student-centered; we are committed to the overall growth of a dancer, which includes communicating healthy and realistic expectations. Our students are given opportunities to explore performance at a high standard, with exposure to professional dance educators and choreographers, within professional environments.
The Callanwolde Dance Ensemble, which we call CDE, has been in operation for more than 20 years. With a rich history in performance and outreach, CDE continues to grow in number, talent, and quality. CDE has nurtured many alumnae that have continued on to study dance in college, as well as to pursue professional careers in dance.
