Pre-Professional

Pre-Professional

For motivated and career-minded students

Classes for ladies and gentlemen, ages 8 to 19

The Pre-Professional Program is an intensive, tiered course of study in ballet and other forms of dance designed to help motivated and career-minded students meet the highest standards of the dance profession. The path to attaining that goal is centered on the Artistic Director’s and the Faculty’s collective belief in the proven results of sound, concentrated training: the more classes diligently applied, the faster the student’s growth and progress. Therefore, students with special potential and commitment are urged to take as many classes as they can. Artistic and financial incentives are in place to enable that possibility.

 

Placement in a class will be approved by the Artistic Director. To schedule a trial class to be evaluated for placement, please contact:

Classes Offered

Description

Primary includes the beginner/elementary levels in which students acquire the initial layers of knowledge that form the foundation of ballet technique. Ladies begin pointe at level 4. These primary levels are considered the most important of all because the students’ development from this point forward depends greatly on the strength of their early base.
