CPAS will be closed this summer for our regular classes and programs. We are available for private instruction, workshops, or small group instruction. Please email the school for details.
I have had the pleasure of including performances by the CPAS dance company in our Friday’s After 5 concert series several times over the course of the last few seasons. Friday’s After 5 runs on an extremely tight schedule and it is imperative that all performances, especially short dance skits in between our sets of live music, be well-rehearsed, tastefully presented and professionally coordinated in advance. I have found that Lea Moore and her colleagues cover all those bases very well. Moreover, their dance numbers are truly compelling and exciting to watch. They always captivate the audience and garner well-deserved attention and applause. The addition of their performances to our Friday’s After 5 concerts truly adds “something extra” to our events at the Charlottesville Pavilion.
