About the Program

The Professional Training Program is aimed at gifted dancers who are ages seven to eighteen (Grades 2-12) in September of their auditioning year.  

Care is taken to ensure the schedule reflects international standards for dance education at every age. Children in this program are given the opportunity for exposure to the world of dance on an international platform ensuring they are prepared and making connections in the professional community they will enter. The classical curriculum is rooted in the Vaganova Method following the Bolshoi Ballet Academy Methods for Teaching Classical Dance. At the forefront of every stage of development of the dancer is Dance Health.

Students in this program are educated not only on the technique and artistry of dance but also on their body awareness and understanding. Students develop a keen sense of how to take care of their bodies not only in dance but also through life. Graduates from this program have gone on to accept company contracts, scholarships and placements in prestigious schools and companies throughout the world as well as pursuing academia predominantly in the fields of Medicine, Science and Law.  Each of our graduates has had the opportunity to choose between University Placement or continued study and work in the dance field.
