How do I know which program is right for me?

CD Open is ideal for dancers who are looking to train at a beginner-friendly level. CD Intensive is ideal for dancers with at least 1 year of dance experience, can learn at a medium-to-fast pace, and are looking to challenge themselves with feedback from instructors. 

Is this program a progressive or is each class drop-in style? 

Both programs are progressive training programs; classes will build upon each other while you explore different styles of hip hop and street styles. They are not drop-in classes. 

Are there performance opportunities in either programs?

CD Open is focused on training the basics and does not offer any performance opportunities. Depending on the season, CD Intensive will offer performance opportunities (not available in summer).
