Pre-professional 

The Pre-Professional Division , for dancers ages 9-19, has a specialized curriculum based on the Vaganova method while drawing on multiple styles and techniques to provide a well-rounded dance education.

The Pre-Professional Division focuses on continued development of technique and artistry.  Classical ballet remains at the core of our training method while encouraging dancers to explore other art forms: character, jazz, modern, and tap.  

Dancers will also have the opportunity to perform in two productions annually.  This provides continued artistic growth.
