Intermediate/Advanced Program (Ages 11-14)

 

Students have a sound understanding of technique and vocabulary. Excercises will increase in speed and require more strength, control and stamina. Our Intermediate Advanced students will experience lengthier combinations and more complex center work focusing on multiple turns, increased extension and ease of execution. Many students at this level are participating in our pre-professional dance company, high school arts programs, and summer intensives with top level dance companies.
