  • Fighting Cancer with Dance

While nothing can fully replace the experience of in-studio instruction, our goal is to supplement training during the closure with opportunities for continued education. We ask that dancers continue with EBA Zoom classes that are level appropriate to connect with their instructors and peers, receive corrections and encouragement, and continue to build their dance foundation. The following opportunities are meant to provide supplemental training and exploration.

CLI Studios

  • We are so excited to be Studio Partners with CLI Studios! EBA dancers have on demand access to new and inspiring classes in ballet, contemporary, hip hop, jazz, yoga, and more with the dance industry’s top choreographers.
