CCM Dance One of Few Programs to Give Students Flexibility to Pursue Professional Work While in School

Vodpod videos no longer available.
For freshman College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) dance student Courtney Connor, a typical day’s schedule begins with class at 8 a.m., followed by rehearsal from 9:30-6:15 p.m. with the Cincinnati Ballet, and concluding with night class back at the University of Cincinnati from 6:30-9 p.m. Connor is one of five current CCM students who are dancing professionally full-time while also pursuing their undergraduate degrees, and several CCM alumni have done the same before.

Connor came to Cincinnati in 2006 to join the Cincinnati Ballet and is now a corps company member. This year, she decided to pursue her bachelor’s degree knowing that CCM would allow her the flexibility to do both. CCM’s Dance Division is one of the few dance programs in the country in which students can work professionally while going to school, and the faculty recognizes the importance of doing both and supports these students’ efforts.
