PROFESSIONAL DAY PROGRAM

Students selected for Professional Day Program have demonstrated a strong understanding of Ballet technique as well as a high level of execution. These students must have the discipline and maturity to handle the increased training schedule of a full-time student. These students will work to refine their base of strength, vocabulary, and technique, in addition to focusing on different qualities in their movement. Classes include Ballet Technique, Pointe, Men’s Classes, Variations, Repertoire, Body Conditioning, and Contemporary.
Through hard work and focus, the completion of the Professional Day Program prepares the student to continue into a Trainee or collegiate program.
