Program Overview

The Academy Training Program is designed to offer young, talented dancers a chance to enhance their skills and experience the opportunity to train and perform in a pre-professional environment.  Students are meticulously placed in the appropriate curriculum based upon their current skill level and will rehearse and perform on a more frequent basis than our regular classes.

Our program prioritizes refined technique, dancer health & fitness and artistic development. We view each student as an individual and aim to ensure she/he reaches their maximum potential. Students are hand selected to create a cohesive group of dancers who demonstrate enhanced skill and dedication.
