Professional Programs

Students interested in a performing or teaching career in dance should participate in the school's professional program. 

 

The following outline is for students interested in either classical ballet or a musical theatre career.  To achieve the qualifying teacher's examination, students need to take the same intensive program.

Many students choose to study at a professional residential dance school, but for financial reasons, the 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 the related fields. 

 

The school is a registered educational institution with the government.  A student needs to commence this program no later than age 10.
