Happy November!! We are so thankful for our incredible pre-professional ballet program.

People have often complimented us on the level of professionalism that is displayed at every one of our ballet performances. Wonder what the ballet is going to be this year!? 🩰

We are proud that many of our faculty continue to dance professionally into their adult years. It exemplifies the passion for dance we instill in our students!

Carly Johnson (pictured) is a proud Cuppett alumni! While a student at CPAC she trained in Ballet/Pointe, Cecchetti, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, and Modern. She also was a student of the Fairfax High School dance academy program. Carly then attended Virginia Commonwealth University where she trained for a BFA in Dance and Choreography. While at VCU she had the pleasure of performing in pieces choreographed by her peers, faculty members, and guest artists at VCU such as Stephanie Martinez and Doug Varone. She has also worked with professionals in the Richmond community such as Pamela England and the Lyric Opera of Virginia. Since 2015 Carly has performed with multiple local companies, and currently dances for Jane Franklin Dance.

💜 Celebrating our Co-Artistic Director/Cecchetti Director’s birthday today, !! As the right hand woman to our owner, she plays a major role in making sure operations behind the scene are running smoothly. Not only that, she also teaches ballet, tap, and Cecchetti and is beloved by all of her students. Fun fact! Ms. Grau has been dancing with us since she was a little girl and was a part of Mrs. C’s “dancing daughters.”

May your day be filled with celebration, abundance, and love Ms. Grau! Happy Birthday, we love and adore you! 🥳🎊🎈

✨ Talk about a throwback pic! Here is Mrs. C and her granddaughter .be proudly standing with at Dance Masters of America’s National Convention. With Ms. Ashley’s contemporary choreography to Plain Jane by Jason Mraz, Caralea won the regional title of Chapter 17’s Teen Miss Dance. They travelled to San Antonio that year to compete in the national convention with Caralea. Without the mentorship of Mrs. C, her youngest daughter and all the CPAC staff, this would have never happened. Cherish all the memories. In the end, that’s what we are left with. Beautiful, nostalgic memories. ✨
