Students are expected to remain in this level until their high school graduation.

If a student does not plan to meet this requirement, they will be considered an elective Ballet 5 student. Elective Ballet 5 students will not be eligible to perform at the end of year concert. Per the 7th and 8th year description of the Vaganova Syllabus: “At this level, the execution of all fundamental movement is carried through with finishing touches to reach the perfection of classical dance. the physical development of virtuosity and artistry are emphasized.” Students will continue their development in the Vaganova method as well as learn Classical and Contemporary ballet variations to further develop artistry and knowledge of ballet.

I've seen a few theatre productions as well as several dance performances at Cavod and they are always well done, artistic, and moving. I would definitely recommend attending any show they're putting on!

All 6 of my children have attended Cavod for many years. The values Cavod carries is valued by my family. Truly a hidden gem. Their technique in all the classes will not disappoint a growing dancer. Wouldn't choose another studio to call family.

The best academy in Lancaster County!!! They care about all students and everyone is welcome! My daughter started dance classes there when she was 4 years old and started theater when she was 8. We only have good memories!

Amazing place! Great dance and performing arts studio. Good quality education in the performing arts. The teachers are wonderful and other students are very friendly. They offer classes for both kids and adults. I believe this studio will continue to expand and grow even more in the coming years.

Cavod is an absolutely amazing dance and performing arts organization. They truly care about the children they teach. My daughter has been attending for almost 4 years and it’s amazing to see her grow and blossom.

My daughter is in her 6th year at Cavod and she has blossomed into a beautiful young women. Cavod has become her happy place and she has made lifelong friends here. She has grown not only technically but spiritually as well. She found her thing and a place to call home! When we moved to Lancaster and she had to switch schools I promised her no matter how far we moved I would never take Cavod away. And now my stepdaughter is enjoying it as well. Thank you for giving me a safe place to teach my children everything from dance to acting to loving and accepting others! And that they are special because of whose they are!

We love Cavod! Our daughter’s current dance teacher does a great job making ballet fun for very young kids and we love that she shares Jesus’ love for the girls during class �

We are so thankful for Cavod!! This is our daughter's 8th year in ballet, 4th year at Cavod and her 1st year on Dance Company II. We appreciate the Cecchetti ballet technical training/syllabus - offered no where else in the area. Not only does Cavod give excellent ballet/dance training, but also, it is a place of spiritual formation and sisterhood. We are so thankful to have found a dance studio that puts dance in it's rightful place - under the Lordship of Christ and for God's glory and renown.

This is an amazing school. Its presence is desperately needed since it is one of so few Jesus centered dance and theatre schools available in the area. The director and staff are always approachable. The teachers work so hard to get each one to perform at their personal best level. I have adored all of the teachers I have ever had.
