A Seattle tradition, Cornish Preparatory Dance Program teaches students to experience the joy of movement and develop a lifelong appreciation for dance. Students prepare for a professional career, to dance in college, or to enjoy dance as an adult. Classes include creative movement, pre-ballet, ballet, jazz, modern, and dance conditioning. Each year, the program stages a Nutcracker at the Cornish Playhouse and a spring concert. All are danced by students ages 4 to 18.
