The Classical & Contemporary Dance Conservatory is a pre-professional program
tailored to students who desire a specified focus in ballet, modern, pointe, men’s
technique, and choreography/composition. Every conservatory faculty member has
extensive professional experience in his or her field of study, providing students with
the technical skills, discipline, and competitive edge necessary for a professional
career in dance or dance-related fields. Students in grades 7-12 spend 10 hours per
week in technique classes, and up to eight hours per week in rehearsals. Through this
experience, students develop an appreciation of the different dance genres and
styles, as well as the history of the art form.
Through guest artist master classes and the Artists in Residence program, students
have the opportunity to work with local and world-renowned professionals who create
original works and provide insight into the dance world.
