PROFESSIONAL
DANCE PROGRAM
& AREA JEUNE BALLET

The Professional Dance Program is spread over a three year period. It produces versatile and creative dancers who have mastered an extensive range of technical skills. This course addresses the needs of dancers from ages 16 to 22 who have reached an advanced level of technique through rigorous and disciplined training.

Throughout the program, emphasis is placed on perfecting both classical
and contemporary techniques. Complementary disciplines such as partnering, physical theatre, acrobatics, hip-hop, pilates and yoga complete the program.

Students will be encouraged to develop their creativity and individuality as an artist through improvisation and composition workshops. Throughout the year, visiting professors and choreographers offer young dancers an artistic opening and make them adaptable to new proposals.

Allow future dancers to find and develop their individual artistic identities, while nurturing their creative spirits. Encourage and develop each student’s unique talent for performance and choreography with regular choreographic workshops and public performances.

Year

01

The first year is based on updating and perfecting the three fundamental techniques: classical, contemporary and modern. These disciplines are taught intensively throughout the first year, providing a solid foundation of technical skills that will allow students to address the different demands and styles of choreographers and guest teachers throughout the training. At the end of the first year, students have the opportunity to perform on stage and present pieces that are part of the school’s repertoire or choreographed for them in a choreographic workshop as well as their work compositions.

Year

Second Year

While continuing to develop their technique, the second year is characterized by an artistic opening and a professional setting through workshops scheduled throughout the year with choreographers and guest professors. These workshops allow young dancers to discover new perspectives and give them the opportunity to become adaptable to new proposals. It is also an opportunity for students to discover the reality of the profession, working with a choreographer, and to become known by international artists. The Jeune Ballet allows second-year students to perform on stage and thus develop their scenic ease and their artistic identity.

Year

03

The third year sees the culmination of the students’ technical, artistic and creative development. The students build a career path, refine their knowledge, and show their full physical, expressive and creative potential. This year serves as the springboard that launches the young dancers into the world of professional dance. To achieve this end, students will have the opportunity to participate in internships with professional companies. These placements will allow students to fully experience life in a company, and observe the many facets of their future profession. Master Classes, choreographic workshops and performance opportunities via the Area Jeune Ballet will take center stage.

AREA JEUNE BALLET

From the second year, students choose the neoclassical or contemporary orientation and join the Area Jeune Ballet.

The training program is intensive and demanding, requiring constant determina- tion and commitment. In addition to talent, it is the rigor of daily work and the passion for one’s art that leads to success.

Depending on their technical level and their course, some students may be admitted directly into the second year.
