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.

One of the most romantic and beloved ballets about love’s triumph over treachery and death comes to life on the CCM stage as the Ballet Ensemble presents Giselle in the Patricia Corbett Theater on May 27-29.

Since its premiere in 1841, Giselle has become one of the most popular ballets of all time and is considered ballet’s great tragedy. Giselle tells the story of a young peasant girl seduced and betrayed by a nobleman. Having died of a broken heart, Giselle joins the ranks of the supernatural Wilis – women scorned before their wedding day and left to seek revenge for eternity. In the end, Giselle’s ghost tries to protect her lover from the vengeance of this group of evil female spirits.
