For over 50 years, the Contra Costa Ballet Centre’s program has served the development of students from their first encounters with music and movement to becoming accomplished professional dancers. There are three separate divisions, which are carefully designed to introduce the correct technique and instruction appropriate for the age and physical development of the student. The three separate divisions are the Children Division, the Student Division, and the Adult/Open Division. There are two sessions a year: a fall session (coinciding with the normal school year; beginning of September to mid-June) and a summer session (beginning of July to mid-August).

RE: Ballet for promising 6-year-old

Since you're willing to go to Walnut Creek, I would recommend the Contra Costa Ballet School, which is very professional and has some of the best teachers around. In Berkeley, there are two schools you could consider, Berkeley City Ballet and Berkeley Ballet Theater. They're both quite good, but as a former professional dancer myself, I'd recommend the Contra Costa Ballet first. anon

RE: Pre-Ballet for 4yo in Contra Costa County

Try Contra Costa Ballet Centre at 2040 North Broadway in Walnut Creek. I know it's good because my daughter has a friend who has studied ballet for years and is a professional dancer with some well-known ballet company. He trained there. Linnea
