Senior Division Dance
Ages 12 and Up
In our senior division dance classes, we offer a variety of recreational classes as well as classes specifically designed to develop pre-professional, career-oriented dancers. Selected dancers attend multiple ballet technique and pointe classes a week. In addition to their comprehensive class schedules, rehearsals, performances, master classes, and special events. During these classes, senior division dance students benefit from developing more personal relationships with their teachers. Our experienced faculty provide professional guidance towards auditions, colleges, summer programs, scholarships, and career opportunities.
