Junior Academy

The BW CAS Junior Academy is a unique learning experience for the winter/spring 2021 semester. All dance classes will be working toward pieces that will be performed in our end of semester dance showcase. For more information about project learning-based instruction and our final dance showcase please visit our dance department page.

Junior Academy students will have two in-person classes per week. These classes will take place Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:15-7:45 p.m. Weekly in-person classes will include a Dynamic Technique class on Mondays and a Jazz/Contemporary class on Wednesdays. Dynamic Technique will focus on jumps, leaps, turns, conditioning, and flexibility. Jazz/Contemporary will focus on artistic expression through combinations in different dance styles.

Junior Academy students will also receive nine (9) half-hour private lessons throughout the session. These lessons will be scheduled at a time that works for both the student and the instructor and will focus on enhancing individual technique and skills as well as learning solo choreography to be performed in our virtual dance showcase.

Students enrolled in the dance academy will also learn and perform one group piece in our virtual dance showcase.

The Junior Academy is designed for young students with prior dance training who are serious about committing to dance. Proper level placement ensures students learn, develop and grow at the level most appropriate to their current amount of experience and dance technique. Placement in the Junior Academy will be at the sole discretion of BW CAS. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Junior Academy please contact us for a placement evaluation
