Summer can be an exciting time for you and your family:
vacations, road trips, overnighters, camping…and, even, just lazing around on
those golden days with nowhere to go and nothing to do but making memories.
But, the faculty at Capital City Dance Center wants to remind you to
make sure to make time for dance this summer!
The Russians have a saying: for every day a dancer
doesn’t dance, that’s another day that has to be made up. So, for example, if
you miss a week’s worth of classes, it’ll take a week to get back to where you
left off. Now, imagine not dancing for THREE months! If you apply the Russian
rule of thumb, it takes three months (if not longer!) to get back to the same
level of dancing. Meanwhile, the students who keep training over the summer never stop
getting better. The faculty sees it every year: dancers who take classes over
the summer often can grand jete’ past students who take all that time
And, there are several opportunities to keep dancing this
summer at CCDC…and you can mix and match to fit your schedule! The
CCDC Summer Intensive offers three levels of Ballet, Pointe and
contemporary dance for half-days or all day for two weeks in June. Then, the CCDC Summer Workshop Series pick up after the
Intensive and continues into August.
Remember: Nutcracker Auditions can take place as early as late August.
Don’t get us wrong! CCDC encourages family time
and family vacations. It’s a great time for kids to be kids and for families
to rediscover each other without academic pressures! Just don’t forget: Make
sure to make time to dance at CCDC this summer!
