Performances & Opportunities
The CSU Youth Dance Conservatory works in partnership with The Columbus Ballet. The Columbus Ballet presents two productions every year, one of these productions is the traditional Nutcracker Ballet. The production offers the students in the Conservatory (7 years old and older) the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful holiday experience.
All students at CSU Youth Dance Conservatory participate in our End of the Year Performance. Every student is invited to participate. This is an opportunity for all levels to show their progress, and every teacher choreographs special pieces for the students. The End of the Year Performance is presented in the month of May at CSU’s University Hall.
The Conservatory has two weeks of open classroom observation (September and April). Parents are invited to come into the classroom with their children and observe a formal ballet class. Our teachers will explain the nature of each exercise and the skills required to execute them correctly. This is a great opportunity for the parents to observe the students’ progress through the year. We also perform evaluations at the end of every year.
Other performance opportunities are available through The Columbus Ballet including outreach presentations in Muscogee County Schools and at the Public Library during our Nutcracker season as well as our End of Year Performance in April.
