Q: WHO IS THE CPP FOR?
A: CPP program is designed primarily with students and practitioners in the field of the performing arts (actors, dancers, performers, directors, choreographers, writers, etc), or anyone interested in broadening their practical knowledge in the field of contemporary performance. While we will be able to accommodate participants at various levels, the faculty expects a reasonable level of familiarity with the field, the areas of performing and physical training, as well as a high level of commitment and discipline to the work at hand.
Q: WHAT DO YOU WEAR FOR THE CPP CLASS?
A: Most people wear lightweight clothing they'd work out in. Others wear leotards, fitted t-shirts, and leggings, or dance wear. Both are
beneficial and appropriate so long as they aren't too baggy to be in the way of movement. Workshops will be taught and taken barefoot in the studios. Individual instructors might have specific requirements - if so, these will be communicated to you well in advance of the first class.
Q: I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS YEAR'S PROGRAM IS VIRTUAL. WHAT ARE THE TECH REQUIREMENTS TO PARTICIPATE?
A: Indeed, CPP 2021 will take place online, via Zoom. We recommend that you ensure that you have a reasonably fast digital device (laptop, tablet, desktop) and a stable, high-speed broadband internet connection will be vital to properly receive the instructions. CPP cannot be responsible for poor connectivity on your end, so we encourage you to check your devices and Internet service well in advance.
Q: HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL CCP PROGRAM ALLOW?
A: We expect to accept approximately 16 participants into the 2021 program.
Q: WHAT IS THE COST OF ATTENDING THE CPP PROGRAM?
A: The two-week intensive costs 1,090 EURO. (Currently, 1,330 USD.)
Tuition will cover intensive classes held on Mondays to Fridays each week.
Q: MAY I REGISTER FOR ONE WEEK ONLY?
A: No. This year’s program is designed as sequential training; in order to complete the work, it is necessary to attend both weeks.
Q: WHAT IS THE POLICY ON MISSING CLASSES?
A: Our attendance policy does not allow for excessive absences. Absences will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Excessive
absences from classes may prevent a student from participating in performances, or result in dismissal from the program.
Q: CAN CLASSES BE VIDEO-TAPED OR PHOTOGRAPHED?
A: Because of the copyright, photography and videotaping is not allowed under any circumstances.
Q: I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS. WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONTACT YOU?
