Preparatory Professional Training Program is a new program for talented students age 11-13.

The program utilizes the Vaganova Method in which some of the greatest ballet dancers such as Nureyev, Makarova, Baryshnikov, Zakharova, Vasiliev, and Osipova were trained.

Classes are kept small so that dancers receive the finest quality ballet training in a “semi-private” training environment in which size does not exceed 8 students.

Each student is given an opportunity to learn pieces from the classical repertoire, as well as contemporary group pieces and character dances to be performed at a professional venue on a full size stage. The performances take place each winter and spring.

Private instructions are available by appointment.

The Preparatory PTP includes: Classical Technique, Pointe, Repertoire, Character, Contemporary, Pilates, Performances on professional stages and Performances in community settings throughout the year.

Admission to the Preparatory Professional Training Program is by audition only.
