Pre-Professional Conservatory Programs

For the most serious-minded dancers, impeccable training preparing these young artists for long, meaningful careers is a must.  The students in our two, separate conservatory programs train for careers in classical ballet, concert dance, musical theatre, film and more during daytime classes.  Because of the nature of these programs, students in them must be home schooled.


Ballet Conservatory at Skyra

The Ballet Conservatory at Skyra is for serious-minded dancers training to enter a classical ballet company or contemporary concert dance. This advanced-level program is divided into 2 levels: Pre-Pro 1 and Pre-Pro 2 and runs August through May.  In addition to classical ballet technique, dancers also study pointe, variations, contemporary, modern, jazz, lyrical, emotions, and SkyraFit (strength, conditioning, and injury prevention).

The Hatch

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.
