The Half Day Training option allows Caulfield School of Dance Professional Training Division members in middle or high school, grades 8 and up, to train from 1:30 pm to 4 pm, Monday to Friday, in addition to unlimited, but mostly optional training on Saturdays and beyond 4 pm Monday to Friday.
The ballet stream pre-4pm Monday to Friday training is exclusively in Ballet and Modern/Contemporary Dance including Contemporary Ballet; the Commercial stream training is in Ballet, Modern/Contemporary Dance, including Contemporary Ballet, and Commercial forms (Jazz/Lyrical, Hip Hop, Tap, Musical Theatre, and/or other non-classical forms).
Students must have an academic schooling schedule that allows for leaving in time to be ready to dance by 1:30 pm, all five days per week.
The Half Day Training option is only open to serious and dedicated students. Audition and/or interview and signed Agreements (please see more regarding the program’s obligations and policies below) with students and their guardians are required.
Tuition for the 2019/2020 Year for the Half Day program is $7417, or $7378 with the early summer registration discount. (The fee ceiling for Professional Training Division programs without the Half Day option is $7177, or $7150 with the early summer registration discount.)
Half Day program enrollment for the 2019/2020 year requires a minimum of three weeks of 2019 Caulfield School of Dance Summer Intensive Weeks, which are included in tuition, and participation in not less than 60 hours of summer training in total (i.e. summer classes and programs at Caulfield School of Dance totaling 60 hours or more; or 3 weeks of C.S.D. intensive training = 52.5 hours + proof of training at other institutions, totaling at least 7.5 hours).
Pre-registration for the three weeks of Caulfield School of Dance Summer Intensive Weeks is required. Three weeks of Summer Intensive Weeks are $780.00 ($14.86 per instructional hour). If payment in full is complete by April 30, 2019, a 5% discount applies and total tuition is therefore $741.00 + $6637 = $7378.00 (vs. $7417.00).
Total Tuition includes, for September to June, instruction in Ballet (including pointe work, pas de deux, etc.) and Contemporary Dance/Contemporary Ballet in class time from 1:30 pm to 4 pm, Monday to Friday; and beyond 4 pm Monday through Friday: a required R.A.D. syllabus ballet class for those pursuing an examination; a minimum of one hour of conditioning course time; and workshops, often with guest instructors.
