Is the Bridge Program right for you?
The Bridge Program offers more in-depth dance foundation than what the pre-school class time allows for. This is meant as a transition/preparation for our Company, or simply for young dancers that have demonstrated particular interest in dance and are ready for a slightly bigger commitment.
Dancers ages 4-5 are accepted by teacher recommendation or evaluation only. Young dancers are evaluated mostly by listening skills, the ability to follow directions, and certain technical aptitude.
What to expect
The program consists of two extra classes per week of dance techniques including one ballet, and one technique/combination class. Beyond that, dancers age 4 are required to continue taking at least two of the regular pre-school classes, and dancers age 5 are required to take at least three other regular studio classes (one must be ballet).
This program allows for extremely individualized attention, and for young dancers that demonstrate early capability – to excel at a much faster rate. All classes are conducted in a high-energy, fun atmosphere that in turn develops young dancers’ creativity and love for movement!
*Participation in the Bridge Program does not guarantee acceptance into the Company. All dancers must audition to be on the Company.
** The Bridge Program requires at least 5 people to participate each year. If you may be interested and would like to learn more – please contact us for more information!
