The Professional Training Program (PTP) is designed for the serious ballet dancer ages 11-19 years old.
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 classical ballet solo variations, contemporary variation, 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.
All students are given the opportunity to compete at the Youth America Grand Prix.
Selected students are also chosen for international ballet competitions.
Private instructions are available by appointment.
The comprehensive PTP includes: Classical Technique, Pointe, Repertoire, Character, Contemporary, Pilates, Performances on professional stages and Performances in community settings throughout the year.
Admission to the Professional Training Program is by audition only.
