Students are selected for our pre-professional conservatory programs for their potential and mental readiness to begin a rigorous training program by special invitation or audition only.
The Ballet Conservatory at Skyra is a world-class training and performance program for talented and driven students aimed at preparing dancers for a professional career in classical ballet or contemporary dance with a strong classical ballet foundation. Dancers in the program train six to eight hours per day, six days per week, with breaks for academics. In addition to classical Vaganova ballet technique, dancers also study pointe, variations, contemporary, modern, jazz, lyrical, emotions, strength/conditioning and more. This is an advanced level training program.
