CBC was featured in the August 2015 issue of Dance Spirit, October/November 2013 issue of Pointe, the November 2013 issue of Dance Informa and the March 2013 issue of Dance Magazine. In the past, it has also been featured in The New York Times and TimeOut NY as well as on VanityFair.com. CBC is committed to enriching the arts in the Columbia community and providing a platform for the collaboration between professionals in the New York dance community and Columbia University students. CBC is managed and directed by students, and its members have danced professionally with companies such as Ballet West, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Houston Ballet, Kansas City Ballet, the National Ballet of Canada, New York City Ballet, North Carolina Dance Theatre, Orlando Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, and Tulsa Ballet. The New York Times writes, "New choreographic voices are rare in ballet, and the collaborative's contribution in this respect has been vast already."

CBC is a recognized student group at Columbia University and jointly advised by the Office of Student Engagement and Barnard College's Department of Dance. We thank the Department of Dance for its generous support and continued provision of rehearsal space.

Sponsored in part by the Arts Initiative at Columbia University. This funding is made possible through a generous gift from the Gatsby Charitable Foundation.
