CoSA’s Classical and Contemporary Dance conservatory under the direction of Gina Sorensen focuses on training in concert dance techniques, ballet and contemporary dance, and developing creative artistry and skills in choreography. The heart of the program is composition and improvisation, the experience of being a practicing artist. Students create their own work by exploring a diversity of styles that are interesting to them and are provided with a spectrum of dance instruction that includes cultural styles from around the world, ancient dance forms up to the latest trends in dance. Flamenco, hip hop, tap, jazz and many other styles have been included in various repertory pieces by faculty and student choreographers.
CoSA is a premier public school arts conservatory, home to 200 scholar artists grades 9 through 12, who attend the nationally ranked Coronado High School. CoSA provides an intense, pre-professional arts education to students from all over San Diego in six conservatories including dance, digital arts, music, musical theatre and drama, technical theatre and visual arts.
