The more experienced dance student delves into the art of dance through rigorous and challenging classes taught by highly-trained artists who share their professional experience with enthusiasm. The Intensive Program offers carefully structured classes to those students who have the passion, experience and aptitude to train and study dance in depth.


 Lower Levels 1-3; Upper Levels 4-7

Our Intensive Program begins at age 8 with a minimum of two days per week of instruction and builds in both hours and intensity, according to our carefully designed curriculum. The aim of our Intensive Program is to adequately prepare students who possess the passion, dedication, and aptitude for this art form, to pursue a career in dance at the collegiate and/or professional bridge program levels (such as our Day Program or Trainee Program). Depending upon the level of the student, the program includes Ballet, Pointe, Conditioning, Variations, Repertoire, Character, Jazz, Tap, and Modern/Contemporary. New students are required to take a placement class to determine skill level and suitability for the program.
