Pre-Professional Program

For the Professional Program (PP), students must possess the determination to commit to a serious ballet program and have the required technical ability and physical strength. The Professional Program is designed to provide training that meets the highest artistic standards and to prepare students for a career in dance, should they chose to pursue this path. Students in this program may have the opportunity to perform alongside Ballet Arizona’s professional dancers as part of their training. Acceptance in this program is by invitation only. Students who are interested in joining this program are strongly encouraged to participate in our Summer Intensive prior to the school year.

 

In addition to having opportunities to perform in Ballet Arizona productions, PP students will perform in the Student Showcases as well as have other performance opportunities.

Schedules:
Pre Professional Program: 4-day or 6-day schedule
with 2-3 classes per day
Professional Program 2: 6-day schedule with 2-3 classes
per day
