The pre-professional division is designed for very serious students and
is technique based. This division is suitable for students considering a career in dance, those who wish to
dance competitively, or those who simply want to get the most out of their dance training in order to reach
their full potential. In this division dancers are placed by ability and must take the entire program
for their level. Dancers in most levels will have back to back classes which helps to increase their stamina
and endurance. Dancers in this program will study ballet, jazz, modern, pointe or men's class, Pilates,
and variations (not all of these classes are offered to the youngest levels). This helps to create a well
rounded dancer and exposes the students to several styles of dance. Students should plan to spend a couple
years in each level to truly master the movements taught in each class before progressing to the next level. Dancers
in the Pre-Professional division will perform in the end of year concert. Pre-Professional division students who
wish to add some open division classes to their schedule may do so at a 50% discount.
If you wish to participate in the Pre-Professional division but have a conflict with the set schedule for your level, please contact the director to find a suitable replacement class
