Pre-Professional | Ages 7 - 18

Students, ages 7-18 who are serious, committed dancers, seeking to expand and improve dance techniques and vocabulary while aspiring to become professional artists. No previous dance training is required; all students audition for placement levels. The Pre-Professional program has 4 levels and as students grow in each level, techniques and skills progress, the dance techniques and days in classes expand. Classes are held after school and on Saturdays. Pre-Professional students make a commitment to consistently attend classes and miss only 4 to fully participate in the Pre-Professional Academy.

Students audition to participate in the Winter Revue and Annual Spring Dance Concert.
