At the preprofessional level, our curriculum focuses on developing students ability to self-correct, discuss dance intelligently and perform with artistic integrity.  Students are encouraged to study cross-genre and to incorporate pilates. 

We have introductory classes for beginners of all ages.  Our curriculum teachers dancers to begin to use their body in a functional, healthy, expressive manner from the start of training.
