Intensive Program Level 3-5

Arts Umbrella Dance Intensive Program Level 3-5
About the Program

With admissions based on instructor recommendation, the Intensive Program (IP) Level 3-5 is designed for committed young dancers who are ready to take 4-6 classes per week. Our ballet-based programs develop the strength and understanding necessary for long-term success in all Arts Umbrella Dance programs.

Our classes focus on the dancer as a whole, emphasizing physical, emotional, and intellectual development throughout the year. We celebrate the achievements of our dancers at the end of the school year with our year-end recital at the Vancouver Playhouse in June.

Experienced dance instructors and accomplished artists make up our wonderful faculty, who guide dancers throughout the year. Ballet and modern classes are accompanied by sought after dance accompanists to create a quality program for young dancers.


Admission to the Intensive Program Level 3-5 is made in consultation with dance faculty. Placement is determined by academic grade. For example, Level 4IP dancers are in Grade 4 and do not need to have completed Level 3 or Level 3IP.

Class Packages

All class packages include ballet, as well as additional classes in jazz, character, contemporary, tap, conditioning, and/or musical theatre. Students attend 4-6 classes per week, dependent on class packages.


Following Level 5IP, dancers may audition for the Professional Training Program or continue to the General Program Level 6 to maintain 4-6 classes per week.
