About the Program
This after-school program introduces students to the rigour and physical demands of professional training with a main focus on ballet. The committed student will participate in 12-16 hours of dance instruction a week, receiving in-depth training with an emphasis on dance technique, vocabulary, and style. Dancers at the Pre-Elementary 2 (Grade 7) level have the unique opportunity to work with guest choreographers for performance opportunities throughout the dance season.
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.
