Dance

Cornish College of the Arts has a long-standing tradition of providing dance training for children and young adults. In fact, the Preparatory Dance program, which offers classes throughout the academic year, has been running at Cornish for more than 50 years. The Summer at Cornish Dance Program extends the opportunity for continued dance training for students ranging in age from 3.5 through 25. The Pacific Northwest provides a dramatic backdrop for our extension dance classes, which are held at our beautiful, historic Capitol Hill campus. Dancers will experience a rigorous classical ballet and modern dance curriculum that stresses technique, artistry and composition, while respecting and supporting the health of the whole dancer. Intensives typically include coursework in classical ballet or creative movement, modern, Pilates, jazz, contact improvisation, composition, improvisation, acting, and character dance. Classes are taught by current Cornish faculty and guest artists. All modern and ballet classes are accompanied by Cornish’s talented live musicians, nurturing the dancers’ innate relationship to the tempo, phrasing and dynamics of live music.

Pricing

Courses vary in price from $90 to $1995. Scholarships are available for dancers ages 14 to 18 attending pre-college intensives.
