Pre-Professional Ballet

Our Pre-Professional Division is designed to equip growing artists with a working knowledge of classical ballet technique and performance. This program encompasses Ballet Levels III-V. 

Here, our students learn the foundational building blocks of ballet through our intentionally designed syllabus. In addition to ballet technique, PPD students take classes in contemporary and conditioning, as well as have the opportunity to dance en pointe. All PPD students experience unique performing opportunities throughout the year. These allow students to develop their work ethic, practice learning choreography, and experience the fun of a professional rehearsal process. It is the goal of our Pre-Professional Program to enable each student to reach their individual dance goals.
