Student interested in a performing or teaching career in dance should participate in the schools professional programme. The following outline is for students interested in either a classical ballet or musical theatre career. To achieve the qualifying teachers' examination, students need to take the same intensive programme.
 
Many students choose to study at a professional residential dance school, but for financial reasons, uncertainty of physical heredity or difficulties of separation from family, this is not always possible. Intensive study at a general school is an alternative.
 
Although, no guarantees can be given due to the factors of heredity, injury, work habits and continued motivation and dedication, the school does have a history of leaving "doors" open for students entering the dance profession, as performers and in related fields. The school is a registered educational institution with the government.
