Preprofessional Training


Preparing your dancer...

Emotions Dance Studio offers a pre-professional curriculum for the more serious dancer. The program is designed to offer technique, artistic development, and the tools needed to succeed in a college or arts program, as well as in the professional arts world. Dancers ages 7 and older are eligible for this program based on audition and/or director recommendation.

Dancers in this program are required to take classes in:

  • Ballet
  • Jazz
  • Modern
  • Tap
  • Contemporary
  • Specialty (Dance History, Choreography, Audition Prep etc)

Dancers will also be encouraged to attend summer dance programs at various schools around the country. Dancers will get one on one help with resume writing, audition videos, interview prep, fundraising, and application preparation.

Dancers will also have the opportunity to participate in the studio’s Young Choreographers Showcase which will teach them about the principals of choreography, basics of putting on a show, plus rehearsals, costuming, and stage managing. The dancers participating in this showcase will have an opportunity to choreograph on Emotions Dance Studio dancers and present the work to the public.
