April Monthly Newsletter

Virtual classes continue! 

We’ve loved these first weeks of Facebook live streaming and look forward to continuing this schedule until we’re back in the studio. If you’ve missed any classes, don't fret! Past sessions are archived in the Videos section of our Facebook page. 

If you’re having technical trouble or have questions about the schedule and what’s best for your student to attend, check out the links below (including a NEW tip sheet answering some questions we’ve heard from families.) And you can always reach us at or 513.562.1111. Our administrative team is working at home, and we’re readily available to support you in your training!

Videos on Vimeo

In addition to the live streaming schedule each week, all levels now have pre-recorded, professionally edited videos available to watch as many times as you like and at any time that’s convenient to you! 

Click the appropriate link below and enter the password “CBAtHome” to see our library of offerings for your student's level. Please note the password is case specific. Below links include at least one sample class for each level, some Main Division conditioning offerings, and Spring Production choreography videos for CD1, CD2, and CD3. These videos are exclusively available to currently registered Academy students.

Main Division Class Connections on Zoom

Starting this week, we’re excited to offer a new forum for our Main Division and Professional Training Division dancers to connect with teachers and fellow classmates as a complement to their online classes. Bring your questions about dance, technique and your training to your level’s scheduled video meetings on Zoom! The schedule is linked below, and login information will be sent for each session via Remind.

Thanks for dancing with us!

We’ve loved seeing glimpses of your at-home class experience! Remember, you can tag us with photos and videos on our social channels using the hashtags #CBAtHome and #CBApplause or send us an email to let us know how it’s going. 

Return to In-person Classes & Spring Production

We’re looking forward to returning to in-person classes on Saturday, May 2, and extending our Academy year into late May. If you missed this email announcement last week, please let us know so we can pass along the details!

Anyone who had previously purchased SP tickets should have received a separate email with information about your ticketing options. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
