THIS SECTION IS FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE INTENT ON A CAREER AS A DANCER
Access to pre-professional formation requires high motivation, strong predispositions and great discipline. It is conditioned by good aptitudes at both school and dance. The school also accepts students looking for perfectionment during a year or two before presenting to auditions.
The pre-professional training program includes rigorous daily work in Ballet (including Barre a terre and Pointes) and weekly classes in Jazz, Modern and Contemporary, the base disciplines of dance today.
The pace of the students work is increased gradually as they progress and is adapted to meet the demands of their scolarity. Schedules are established based on the age of the student and the direction chosen in agreement with the professors.
As an option, students have access to classes of Taps, Hip-Hop, Street Jazz and other disciplines of interest for a comprehensive multidisciplinary training.

Deliberations of the professors
Interview with each student and their parents at year’s end
Students who have not obtained sufficient results at the end of the year will be directed to a less demanding program, allowing them to continue to grow serenely and at their own pace, so as not to encourage young people to persevere on a path too arduous for them.
