Pre-Professional Program

 

Students will have the opportunity to train in our spacious facilities with daily intensive training. This program is a unique and excellent opportunity for the young dancer to experience the highest levels of coaching at an internationally recognized level.

 

INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR LEVELS

This stage of the Pre-Professional Program prides itself on the education and training of a complete classical dancer. One that has the solid technical and artistic abilities to further themselves to a professional classical ballet company, with the depth of movement and technique in contemporary dance to complete the package.

This program runs daily after school at Edge from 3:30-6:30pm and includes a two hour class on Saturdays for a total of 17 hours of training/week. The program has a very limited amount of space available as our intention is to keep class sizes small for a very personalized approach to training.

Training classes include classical ballet, pointe, classical repertoire, Pilates and contemporary with the opportunity to complete Royal Academy of Dance Examinations.

JUNIOR LEVEL

We are very excited to introduce the addition of the Junior level to the Pre-Professional Program this year. Students will receive a well rounded education in classical ballet and pointe, contemporary, jazz, Pilates and conditioning, with the opportunity to also complete Royal Academy of Dance Examinations.

This program will run some weekdays after school hours and on Saturdays for a total of 8.5 hours of training/week. This program also has a very limited amount of space available as our intention is to keep class sizes small for a very personalized approach to training.
