California Dance Academy's (californiadanceacademy.com) The Nutcracker is a large scale professional production featuring over 60 students alongside professional guest artists in Madrid Theatre in Canoga Park.
California Dance Academy, under the direction of Jennifer and Robbin Shahani, continues to follow a great tradition of Rozann-Zimmerman Ballet Center, which served young dancers with impeccable training for over 50 years.
The California Dance Academy faculty is comprised of teachers with years of experience in teaching and performing, each with specific areas of expertise, bringing a wealth of knowledge to share. Many of California Dance Academy's students have been awarded scholarships to prestigious national training programs such as San Francisco Ballet School, Miami City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre and Pittsburgh Ballet. Others have gone on to college dance programs and/or pursued professional careers.
The curriculum, which draws on the best of R.A.D., Vaganova and Cecchetti techniques, is carefully designed to provide technique and instruction appropriate for the age and physical development of the student. The focus of training is on the excellence, fun, and joy of dance at each level of achievement. The principles, discipline, artistry and mental-physical development acquired through the study of classical ballet provide students with the confidence, focus and grace for success in years to come.
