CCBC Dance Company

In residence at CCBC Essex, the CCBC Dance Company is under the Artistic Direction of Melinda Blomquist and Associate Director Kristi Schaffner. The Company provides expanded learning and performing opportunities for CCBC Dance students to grow as artists.

The Company performs in the CCBC Dance Concert each Fall and Spring semester. The company is also involved in community outreach with local schools. They provide special performances for middle and high schools, masterclasses and demonstrations.

The CCBC Dance Company hosts guest artist residencies each semester. Students work with the guest artists in the creation or restaging of work during the residency that is then shared in the CCBC Dance Concert.

The CCBC Dance Company has a guest artist residency each semester. Guest artists have included Gallim Dance Company, Nathaniel Hunt, Ephrat Ahserie Dance, Company E, Jon Lehrer, John Zullo, Peter Pucci, Alvin Mayes, Adrienne Clancy, Nicole Martinell and Gesel Mason.
