Professional Dance 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 program.

Many students choose to study at a professional residential dance school. For financial reasons, the uncertainty of physical heredity, or difficulties from the separation of 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, & continued motivation & dedication, the school does have a history of leaving "doors' open for students entering the dance profession, as performers or 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. 

Former students have gone on to perform professionally.​
