Academy Program

Our goal in the Academy Program is to provide dancers with strong dance training and give students the opportunity to progress into the Pre-Pro Track if they choose to do so. Not all Academy dancers will choose to pursue the Pre-Pro track or dance career, yet our mission is to give students the skill set to help them succeed in any career they choose to pursue. Strong attendance, accountability, and team cooperation will help students work toward creating the habits that help them be reliable, prepared, determined, supportive, and confident. Practicing these skills in class and rehearsal sets students up for confidence and success on stage and in life.
