WHAT IS IT?

Designed for the serious dancers who are looking for a to have a professional dance career in the concert world. This fun, uplifting, high energy program is created to sculpt you into the dancer you're destined to become. With 20+ hours of training a week in.

WHAT WE OFFER?

We offer a program, unlike many pre-professional programs. Dancers study classical ballet technique, pointe, variations, modern (multiple disciplines explored), contemporary and jazz. Our training also includes stretch, strength, and conditioning classes. Both commercial and concert dance are stressed in their training so that they become well-rounded dancers.

WHY WE OFFER IT?

We have structured our program this way because of the need for students to become dancers of the future. After researching other pre-professional programs, we noticed that most of them are highly focused on ballet training. However, after looking at the current and future dance industry needs, ballet training is and will always be invaluable foundation training, but dancers and dance companies have begun diversifying what dance genres they perform. Both contemporary and modern choreography and choreographers have become extremely popular and accepted amongst large classical companies. So, we believe that the dancers that we produce need to have the knowledge and be able to proficiently dance all genres in order to complete in auditions and have long-lasting careers in future dance companies.
