The first program we offer is our pre-professional morning program. Students, ages 14-22, are invited into this program through audition only, and it is intended to prepare students for a professional career. In this program, students are required to take a minimum of twenty hours of classes per week and will be primarily instructed and coached by the artistic director. From September-May, guest instructors will be brought in to ensure that students are exposed to various teaching styles from some of the most renowned teachers in the world. Additionally, at the discretion of the artistic director, students will be given the opportunity to be coached to attend prestigious competitions such as YAGP, International Ballet Competition, and World Ballet Competition.
