The Pre-Professional Program is an accelerated track for the ambitious dancer that offers advanced instruction and curriculum 5 or 6 days per week. This program is about perfecting technique and learning deeply about ballet as an athletic art-form in an exhilarating, inspiring environment. Students take pointe, variations, contemporary and jazz to prepare for performances and auditions. Dancers also participate in field trips to see touring and local professional companies. Seminars also educate the students from a holistic point of view on relevant subjects such as nutrition, injury prevention, conditioning, ballet history, and audition preparation. In addition to the Nutcracker with live orchestra and Graduation Recital, these dancers perform in the Spring Showcase and community events.
