Pre-Professional Mentorship Program

CRACK IT OPEN!

The Hatch is a boutique mentorship program built specifically for serious dancers ages 13 and up interested in pursuing a professional career in the commercial dance world. The stylized training separates the genres into specialized subcategories, allowing students to refine their skills within their focused areas of interest.

The Hatch offers elite classes in dance technique, conditioning, on-camera work, acting, singing, improvisation, career guidance, audition prep, dance workshops, intensives, and more.

The Hatch will offer students the skills they need in order to bridge the gap between training and hatching into the entertainment industry. Over the course of this program, dancers will meet with directors, producers, choreographers, and talent agents. Throughout the year dancers will also receive personalized mentorship from industry professionals giving them valuable insight into their unique career paths.

Dancers in The Hatch program will also have the opportunity to gain real industry experience and credits by performing in digital content that will later be distributed on Dancentric TV.

IMG_5436_bw

The Hatch at Skyra is for serious-minded dancers training to be professionals in various types of companies, national tours, Broadway, film/tv and more. This program is led by top industry professionals and runs August through May. The commercial industry is highly competitive and it is our goal to give our students the education they need in order to become a triple threat! In addition to classes in technique and choreography, students will also have film and stage performance opportunities.

Students in The Hatch program are well-rounded, highly motivated & talented dance students who are either homeschooled or participate in an early release program with their school. Classes start at 2pm with optional offerings starting at 11am. Homeschooled students have a particular advantage since they can usually devote more time to training, and, with some structure, students are more likely to stay on task. In this exclusive environment, students will form friendships and bonds with like-minded individuals who share the same passion, drive, and determination for a professional career.

Schedule

Students in The Hatch program will be placed into one of two levels in the evening class schedule. Placement will be made during the first few weeks of school.
