Welcome to the beautiful new webpage for the Classical and Contemporary Dance Conservatory at OCSA. My hope is for this site to be a hub featuring the stunning beauty of CCD’s featured art forms while highlighting the successes of our students, alumni, and faculty. In addition, information on the outstanding caliber of faculty, guest master teachers and choreographers, and the varied experiences and opportunities our students enjoy, will be available to peruse at your leisure.

CCD is a conservatory where dancers seeking a specified focus in ballet, modern, and choreography composition will flourish. Our dancers learn and refine skills necessary for careers in dance and graduate with the knowledge and understanding of what is involved in pursuing careers in dance.

Q: Why is the Parent Funding Agreement so important?

A: The PFA is the donation* each family pledges to the Conservatory. Your pledges help support all aspects of the Conservatory program. It pays for the ingredients and food needed for a robust cooking program, maintenance of appliances, new equipment, instructor salaries, master chef fees and extracurricular activities.

  • $236,500 supports 55 students in the program
  • PFA Pledge: $234.475, or 99% of budget
  • Expected Fallout (Unfulfilled Pledges): $39,861 
  • Current actual budget: $194,614, or 82% of total budget
