Pre Professional Levels for Summer 2018
Current Pre Professional Level Students

The process for placement on Pre Professional Levels occurs during the Summer Intensive Sessions.  The faculty may request to observe students on different levels or we may choose to have a student remain in their current level.  Changes in the dancer’s placement can occur at any point during the summer or before fall registration.

Many factors contribute to placement including body type, growth rate of bone and muscle, emotional and psychological development, and degree of personal commitment to training. Students are placed in one of our four levels to master advanced technical skill, consistency, musicality, articulation, strong work ethic, and teamwork within the strict parameters of the art form.

The trust you place in our faculty regarding placement is greatly needed.  Sometimes the challenge with a dancer isn’t in doing the material, it’s in refining the technique, perfecting the dynamics, and finding the right performance quality.  Our instincts and expertise will tell us where a dancer is placed for now, but we are always watching their progress throughout the year and if they reach a certain level we will consider moving them up.

The list below does not include students that have been invited to the Pre Professional Level Program for Summer 2018.
