We are happy to announce that our program is growing and we will be adding more students to our program starting in the Fall of 2017! The MDU Pre-Professional Ballet instruction models training seen in acclaimed professional schools around the world, targeting the following areas: technique, pointe, variations, French terminology, partnering, conditioning, anatomy/kinesiology, dance history, classical music history, nutrition and resume preparation. These tools will equip a dancer for a future in professional companies, conservatories, college fine arts programs and even dance instruction. Dancers must audition and submit an application in order to be accepted into the program. Larissa Oberly, Amanda Schams, Dennis Williams, Kylie Williams, Debbie White and Alexandra Meier provide the training for the Pre-Professional Program. Combined, they have numerous years of experience as students, professional dancers, instructors and choreographers throughout the United States and Europe.
To make strong gains in technique and skill, daily work is needed. Below are the recommended number of days for each Pre Professional Ballet Level and the pricing of classes per week.
