“My daughters have studied ballet at the CSU Dance Conservatory for the past seven years. From their first Creative Movement classes through their current courses in Classical Ballet and Modern Dance, their instructors have taught them much more than simply dancing. They have developed self-discipline, respect for others, and an understanding that learning anything requires patience and commitment. Apart from dance, the conservatory has provided my girls with an opportunity to forge ongoing relationships with their instructors and strong bonds with the others students who are now lifelong friends.”
