“The Student Showcase smacked of professionalism from the opening curtain. Thank you for putting the polish on CCBC, for pursuing excellence and for making dreams come true. My hat is off to you and your staff!”
Performing is an important aspect of a dancer’s training and experience. All students in the Children and Student Divisions perform in the annual Student Showcase, held in June at the Diablo Valley College Performing Arts Center, which features choreographed demonstrations of each class level.
The Contra Costa Ballet Centre is the home of the Contra Costa Ballet, one of only a few pre-professional, youth companies of this quality in existence in the United States. Company members are students from the most advanced level and perform twice annually at the Lesher Center for the Arts (“The Nutcracker” and “Spring Rep”) as well as in the annual Student Showcase. The young students of the Contra Costa Ballet Centre are fortunate to have the Contra Costa Ballet Company to aspire to.
