Bringing the Arts Back to the Community…

Jose Costas Contempo Ballet offers a diverse array of Community Outreach Programs designed to meet the needs of participants of all ages, backgrounds, and dance experience. These programs are all based on the California Dance Content Standards for Visual and Performing Arts. A transforming and empowering experience through the arts is the ultimate goal of these educational outreach programs:

Summer Dance Intensive

Contempo Ballet offers a full week of intensive dance training during the summer months, taught by our Company’s Dancers in various dance techniques. Our curriculum is designed to develop a versatile dancer capable of succeeding in the competitive professional dance world.

Educational Dance Program in Schools

Bring Contempo Ballet to a school in the Newport/Mesa District in Orange County! Our educational dance programs are specially designed to engage students of all ages and levels with the joy of dance. Professional teaching artists teach a series of dance workshops that culminates in an informal presentation.
(One class per week with a minimum of 10 weeks)

Community Dance Workshops

Designed with the community in mind, our weekend or after-school dance workshops engage all generations in the joy of dance with a fun and enriching communal experience.

Contempo Ballet Dance & Education Performance Series (DEPS)

There is nothing as exciting as seeing Contempo Ballet in a live dance performance! Either at our performing venue, a school of your choice or private event, our specially-designed lecture/demonstration brings to life vibrant cultural and dance elements, engaging the audience in a transforming and educational experience.

Pre and Post Performance Workshops

In addition to performing live for your group, Contempo Ballet Company members can enhance the learning experience by visiting your school and engaging students in a dance workshop connected to the performance.

Want to learn to dance with our unique style? We offer master classes taught by Contempo Ballet’s Artistic Director, Jose Costas, or our company dancers in contemporary ballet, modern, jazz, and advanced Salsa!
