Young people who excel in dance and are committed to taking several classes a week may be invited to participate in these Programs.
Program students are expected to behave with respect and discipline in all classes and rehearsals, and to attend all classes and be on time for classes, rehearsals and performances. The benefits of joining a Program are not only the high level of dance training the students will receive, but also to foster hard work, expression, long lasting friendships, and a sense of belonging to a very special group of creative youth.
Intensive Training Program (ITP)
Junior, Intermediate and Senior ITP students will have the opportunity to work at a quicker pace, taking as many weekly classes as they would like for one program fee. Students are expected to show dedication and respect for their fellow ITP members, and will have the opportunity to perform at community events in addition to a significant role in the year-end performance. This program is meant to give a sense of belonging, hard work, expression, and foster lasting friendships.
Dance Theatre Program (DTP)
This is a program intended for those students interested in the Musical Theatre style of movement and who are keen to work in a more intense fashion. Students will be asked to participate in 4 dance classes per week:
· Broadway Jazz
· Broadway Tap
· Repertoire Class
Other features of this program include a quicker classroom pace, field trips to professional performances, and the opportunity to perform in local community events.
Pre-Professional Program (PPP)
This program is designed to encourage and educate dancers who are interested in experiencing the work and discipline of a professional dancer performing as part of a dance company. Expectations are for these dancers to participate in fundraising for company activities, creating choreographic work, organizing events and performances, and to expose themselves to dance by attending many professional dance performances.
The training includes ballet exam work and classes in modern, jazz, tap and pointe. Choreographic workshops will be introduced, where the dancers can focus on creating work to be shown at their own independent dance workshop performance. Extra performances and workshops will be offered to these students. This program hopes to inspire the students with a dedication to dance, theatre and art that will last throughout their lives.
