Pre-Professional Program

The Pre-Professional Program is an intense dance curriculum for students ages 9 and up. It is designed to allow dance-enthusiasts to reach a higher level of excellence than that of the average recreational student and prepares those considering a career in dance for professional companies. In order to achieve this standard, Dance Studio East believes that it is essential for students to receive quality training regularly; a greater number of classes will result in visible progress. Therefore, DSE makes financial concessions so that exceptional and devoted students can take as many classes as possible in Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Modern/Contemporary, and Irish step dance. In short, the Pre-Professional Program is designed to maximize students’ potential while allowing flexibility with regard to their personal schedules.
