The Contra Costa School of Performing Arts Dance Department is a pre-professional training program that believes dance is a vital mode of inquiry, which provides young artists with the tools to think critically and creatively about the world around them.  We are rooted in a core curriculum of classical ballet, modern, and contemporary techniques, complemented by courses in improvisation, composition, repertory, and dance history.  


Emphasizing a strong technical foundation, but also imagination, intuition, and experimentation, our goal is to provide students with a rigorous and well-rounded arts education, preparing them for a professional dance career or post-secondary study in dance.
