2) Junior high and high school students can take dance as part of their P.E. credit.

3) All K-6 students and CCAA Elementary and Junior High/High School Dancers perform in a Winter Dance Showcase.

4) Exploratory Classes- All students 1st – 6th grade may participate in an Exploratory program where they will sample the many art disciplines looking for one they love.  All students must take one of each discipline by 5th grade.  Dance is one of these disciplines and there are several Dance classes by various staff members each year.
